Conveyor Belt Sushi

Or kaiten-sushi.

Yesterday’s weather, still blah, bleh, ick. Feels like a sauna, a really bad sauna.

Trying to figure out what’s for lunch. Good salad places or shave ice places weren’t on the route home. It was past lunch hour so maybe could get a stool at Genki Sushi.

Recently renovated, they’ve added the bullet train and race car levels to the conveyor belt.

"Bullet Train"

“Bullet Train”

You can order dishes using the touch screen tablets provided. Orders are served from the bullet train or race car directly to your seating. Cute ya?

Irrashaimase!

What I normally hear when walking into a Japanese eating establishment. So, there’s this new take-out sushi place recently opened near the church I work at on Sundays. Getting a little tired of the drama and trauma occurring at the church. I thought church people were supposed to rise above the pettiness of “non-church” people (like myself). I guess people are people,church or no church. Sigh.

So, getting back to the sushi take-out. Saw a sign in the window “now hiring”. Thought it might be a good change of pace, plus, always wanted to learn about sushi. Dropped off my CV with the chef/owner, crossing my fingers.

Since I was there, picked up their lunch special, “rolled combo”.

"Rolled Combo"

“Rolled Combo”

Spicy tuna, uni, and abbreviated California.

My intent is to work the front, but, if he’s willing to teach, maybe can learn sushi making. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Sushi Sundae

More late nights at The Cat’s office. Been eating food too many times from the “western” grocery store.

Japanese Grocery Store

Japanese Grocery Store

Located near The Cat’s office, just outside of the mall. From some reason, the picture reminds me of “Nighthawks” by Edward Hopper. Why? I dunno.

Anyway, found this little gem at the Japanese grocery.

Chirashi Cup

Chirashi Cup

Sushi rice on the bottom, sashimi, salmon roe, Japanese style steamed egg and cucumbers on top. Less than a meal, but more than just a snack. Just right. Not cheap cheap, but not prohibitive either. Definitely do again, sparingly.

I’d order this over a regular sundae, anyday. :)

Enjoy. Eat well.

Kimbap or Gimbap

Or Korean style sushi.

Always was curious about this place.

"Hole in the Wall"

“Hole in the Wall”

The building used to be apartments. It was vacant for a long time. Then it was renovated into commercial s pace and the little addition was built.

Had the opportunity to go exploring around The Cat’s office the other day and I ¬†took a look see.

The place did have positive reviews on Yelp.

Turns out, it’s a one woman operation.

Inside

The place is tiny. My guess is 200 square feet. Just enough space for a customer area, a front counter,cabinets, refrigerator, and prep space in the back.

And all she offers are five varieties of Korean sushi rolls, vegetable, beef, beef and kimchee (or kimchi), tuna, and tuna and cheese (plus some canned or bottled drinks and miso soup). All sushi is $3.00 except for the tuna and cheese, that’s $3.50. Each roll is about eight to ten pieces.

I asked if the beef and kimchee was spicy, she said not too spicy. Went with the beef and kimchee.

Beef and Kimchee Kimbap

Beef and Kimchee Kimbap

Rice, beef, kimchee, carrot, choisum, egg omelet and the seaweed wrapper. All your nutrition in one bite. :) Tasty!

All made when ordered. Not fast food, but fresh and worth the wait.

Definitely worth a revisit. I’d like to try all of the varieties except for maybe the tuna and cheese, that combo (except for tuna melt) never really hit it off for me.

Enjoy. Eat well.
