We will just call this place Sushi Go Round because I have no idea what the actual name of the place is. This happens a lot with us Americans living in Japan not knowing how to understand the language. But it doesn't prevent us from doing things and eating out. Not at all!
If you've been reading my other blog, Where in the World is Kacey?!? you'll have recently seen a post mentioning this place. We've been here twice already, and it's been hard not to go back more often.
At this point you can dive right in and start pulling plates off the conveyor belt. The sushi chefs are in the middle preparing everything, and there are typically 2 pieces per plate, and each plate is color coded according to price. Prices here range from 100 yen to 580 yen, or thereabouts. If what is on the conveyor belt doesn't suit your fancy, you can also order off the menu, writing down (in Kanji) what you want and how many. It doesn't seem that hard, and it's kind of fun trying to copy down symbols you've never really looked at before. Aaron was better at this because he had learned a lot of Kanji and practiced writing it. So even if he couldn't translate it, it was still a little familiar to him. There were a few things I didn't order this time because of how complicated the Kanji was. But we'll just have to keep going back until I decided to take the time to write it!
So...wanna see some of the things we ordered? Of course you do!
Aarons new favorite dish....Pressed Mackerel. He had all of these on me this time, but when we went back I tried it, and I can only describe it as a solid piece of fish. Not only is the texture a thick piece of fish, the taste is undeniably fish from the ocean. You bite into it and you are like, "Now THAT is a piece of fish". I know that sounds really stupid, but that's the only way we could figure out how to describe it. It was really good, and we'll be eating tons of it while we are here. Oh, I could also describe it as if I picked up a whole fish and just bit into it, that's what I would expect. Thumbs up from us!
