Sushi is still a favorite among us Japanese. There are two types of sushi restaurants, the one where a plate of sushi is placed on a conveyor belt (Kaiten-zushi 回転寿司) or one where a sushi cook directly serves you the sushi on a wooden board (Sushi-ya 寿司屋).
And although the later is typically more upscale, I love going to the former and choosing what to eat from the various sushi dishes that pass us by. This is at Kappa Zushi, a famous sushi chain restaurant in Japan.
You can see from the photos, mostly all the sushi are made up of fish or other seafood. But there are actually a couple of sushi plates that vegetarians can eat, too. I like eating the cucumber or ume (Japanese pickled plum) wrap and the fried egg sushi. Yummy!
If you can't find the sushi that you want to eat on the belt conveyor...you can also order what you want on a digital display. When you do, the Kappa Express (below) delivers the sushi directly to your table!
When you're ready to go, the staff comes to count how many plates of sushi you ate, calculates it all, and you pay the total amount at the register.
How many plates do you think you'll eat?
