Stopped in here for lunch (they were advertising 99 cent plates).

Chopstick Wrapper

The last time I was here, it was called something else. Their “conveyor belt” is a moat, filled with water, that circles the dining area and kitchen. The plates sit on little boats that float in the moat. Cute yeah?

Now to the important part, what I ate for lunch.

Charlie's Special

Basically, Charlie’s special was tuna salad with cucumber and tomato, pretty good.

Natto!

If natto is a selection, natto is a selection (especially if The Cat is not around). 😉

Avocado Maki

Spicy Tuna

Spicy tuna is one of the selections that I judge a non-traditional sushi restaurant. This one was pretty good. In my opinion, it could have had a touch more spice.

I think I’ve mentioned this before, for me, no sushi meal is complete for me without an order of tamago (sweetened egg omelet), must be from small kid time.

The Onigiri Project, Cont’d

The restaurant also had mini Spam musubi as a selection, so I had to try an order.

Mini Spam Musubi

These were pretty good. The Spam was fried to almost the texture of pipikaula (dried beef, Hawaiian style). The teriyaki glaze had just the right balance of salty and sweet. My only critique (and it’s a little one) is that the rice was a little overcooked (but still within the acceptable tolerance range). Can you imagine all this thought going into a ball of rice and a slice of luncheon meat? Go figure.

Pretty good mass produced sushi and at the right price. A good lunch.

Enjoy.
