At a 20-minute walk from Kasai Rinkai Park, there is a conveyer belt sushi restaurant. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, it is a normal sushi restaurant, except that it’s not the waiter that brings you your dish but a conveyer belt. When the dish you ordered arrives in front of you, you pick it up and put it on your table. Some dishes on the belt are not ordered by any specific customer, so these ones you can just take.
Anyway, Sushiro is a famous chain Kaiten-Zushi restaurant, one of the most popular ones amongst other 100-yen Kaiten-Zushi places.
I go up the stairs to the second floor. I open the door and see that it is quite spacious.
There are both counter and table seats and can accommodate big families.
I sit at the counter and watch as the many delicious looking sushi plates pass by.
There is a touch screen menu that you can use to order. When the sushi you ordered comes near you, this device will make sound and let you know. A very efficient system!
First off, Anago (eel).
I put this sweet sauce on the soft Anago.
Let’s eat! Itadakimasu!
I looove this soft and slightly sweet Anago Sushi.
Next is Maguro Yukke.
The Maguro has been soaked in sake and soy sauce and has got rid of the raw fish smell, that some might find unpleasant. It comes with a half-boiled egg on top too!
Then I ordered Miso soup and cold Chawan-Mushi (a savory steamed egg custard with assorted ingredients), to take a break from sushi.
Two minutes later, I hear the menu device make that exciting sound. My Chawan-Mushi is coming!
And here it is! I open the lid and…
It’s a beautiful looking Chawan-Mushi with some kind of gelée and pickled ume (plum).
I taste the egg custard part together with the gelée.
The soft texture is perfect! It’s nicely chilled too. I dig inside the custard and find a plump little shrimp.
I honestly cannot believe the Chawan-Mushi is only \180. Definitely a high quality dish!
And now, it’s time to order one of my very favorites: Shrimp Avocado.
This popular sushi is topped with sliced onion and mayonnaise. Looking gorgeous!
How can this combination possibly go wrong? That’s right, it can’t!
I dip it in a little bit of soy sauce and take the sushi to my mouth… but sadly it doesn’t fit. I have to take several bites to finish one of these. I can’t leave Sushiro without having this sushi. Delicious as always!
Other than sushi, Sushiro also offers a wide selection of side dishes such as Karaage (fried chicken) and salad.
This Kabocha Tempura (pumpkin) is one of my favorites. ￥100 per dish.
Freshly fried, crunchy and sweet. It tastes amazing!
It tastes best dipped in soy sauce or even just a little salt.
To finish the meal, Miso soup with sea lettuce and clams.
… if I’m able to find the clams, that is.
After some time struggling through the sea lettuce… found it!
It was really a satisfying meal. I was completely full by the end of the meal, but the bill came to less than ￥1,000.
Great place to come with family, friends, or even on your own!
Don’t miss out on the “Kaiten-Zushi” experience at Sushiro.
