Dear Food Diary:
Stalkerboy’s coworkers came to town and since we didn’t know how comfortable everyone was sushi wise, the nearby conveyor belt sushi seemed perfect.
I’ve never been to one and found myself rather excited. Plates upon plates of raw fish and other goodies going round and round. There was also a screen to order a la carte. From unique choices to more familiar bites like tuna and salmon.
A few more unusual offerings (at least to me)…
Sea Tangle with Herring Roe looked really interesting, hundreds of little clear eggs glued to each other. I was excited but one bite and a sour face later, I realized the salty, oily and vinegar combo was just not my thing. Too fishy for my taste. I couldn’t finish it.
Ark Shell aka ark clam has a nice sweet snap to it. I’m a big fan of clam’s unique texture and this was great.
Then the more familiar things came on the belt…
Warabimochi is one of my favorite desserts. Though the version here really wasn’t worth writing about, the jelly and mochi’s chewy consistency still aided my sweet tooth. Sweet syrup and a nutty soybean flour dust.
Overall, it was a fun meal. Though not amazing, it was definitely a memorable first time. Inexpensive option and the quality was still above a regular sushi joint in NYC. This is on my cheap eats Tokyo list.
According to StalkerBoy this was better than the other conveyor belt sushi spots he’s been to for lunch.
