Conveyer Belt Sushi (3 of 3)

Restaurant: Japan Kura_Sushi

Nelson @ Kyoto: To save on staff you have to make your own green tea at Kaiten Sushi. Scoop out from a container full of powdered green tea into your cup and add boiling water. You never have to rely on the wait staff to refill your cup!
































This one looked impressive and had some red fish sushi with onion, avocado and mayo. As you can probably tell from the photo, it had way too much onion and as a result that overpowered everything else.
































Snow crab only comes in single pieces, but at least that one piece is pretty big. I have no idea why it comes with a piece of the shell though.
































Another "expensive" one as it only came with one, the raw ebi shrimp was really really good! Very fresh tasting and totally unexpected that it would taste like quality for 100 yen!
































We saw this one pass by occasionally and had no idea what it was. Mushroom? Clam? Exotic seafood? Nope....it turnout out to be a pork meatball, haha.
































These fried sticks were also really popular so we also ordered one. They had a hard outer layer of caramelized sugar and a soft interior. We weren't quite sure what it was, but I would guess some sort of yam.
































The restaurant was really advertising their new green tea dessert for 200 yen. We gave in to the advertising and custom ordered one. Too bad we didn't see it on the conveyor belt earlier as it turned out to be much smaller than expected. Even my photo makes it look bigger than it actually was. It has some mochi and red bean paste and way too much cream. The green tea mousse did taste strongly of green tea, but it was probably artificial.
































So how do they how much you ate? Well you throw your used dishes into the perfectly shaped slot and totals them for you. Also saves the staff from some cleanup work. More automation, more efficiency!

The novelty of the whole experience was so fun. It was so fun to look at all the plates as they go by. So fun to practice your technique picking up dishes you want. So fun to slide the dirty plates away. So fun to drip soy sauce onto your sushi piece by piece. So fun to hear and see your special order coming. Although the quality of sushi wasn't very good, it was an inexpensive meal and more importantly, it was such a fun experience!

  • Yes, all were 100 yen ($1.25) except for the green tea mousse, which was 200 yen. Definitely a cheap meal!
