Last week we experienced our first "sushi-go-round" restaurant and were able to take Grandma to our favorite zoo.
Here is our first experience with kaiten sushi (conveyor-belt sushi, also known as sushi-go-round). The kids (Kris included) were fascinated with the food moving by on its little track. There were two tracks here. The bottom track moved in an oval constantly. The top track was for specially ordered food (chicken nuggets and fries for the kids, and Kris). When you pull your sushi off the belt and eat it, you then get to drop the plate into a little slot on the table. My guess is that it collected down there and then someone, or maybe a machine, counted them. All plates were 100 Yen, except for a few special plates. Every once in a while we would hear our plates down under the conveyor belt clinking together as if they were being counted. There was also a game at this place. We are absolutely clueless about how that worked. Every few plates the monitor at our table would play a cartoon and one of those times the toy machine over the belts started moving and a toy fell out.
|Getting his chicken off the special track on top|
|I think this was seared salmon with cheese on top|
|I think this was a seafood salad|
|Salmon roll. This was hard for me. It was really dry.|
|I think this was a beef "patty" for Kris|
|Sampler....salmon, shrimp, not sure what the pink was, and squid. |
Joan had the squid and said it was very chewy.
|I forget what this was. potato, maybe? Kris ate it.|
|He had his behind toward the window. |
I was lucky that he turned just enough for me to get the shot above.
|I love getting shots of all the birds, but my camera is an|
auto zoom and I can't figure out how to get it to see
past the bars consistently.
|This guy was scary looking!|
|Trying to find the gorillas|
|There they are...sleeping|
|Dhore....maybe. I can't remember. Mackenzie drew|
a picture of it and I wrote it on the picture, but we can't
find the notebook now.
|This is our favorite spot!|
|That's the big guy. He would swim by so slow and most of the time he flipped over on his back.|
