I had been eyeing a new conveyor belt sushi spot all semester long and finally had a chance to go after class the other night. Having been fascinated with automation and mass production since childhood, I couldn’t wait to try it.
Conveyor belt sushi is exactly what it sounds like: small plates of sushi that roll along a conveyor belt in front of you. You pick whatever you want and are charged by the plate. Prices vary according to the color of the plate.
The sushi wasn’t the best I’d ever had, and, after seeing the same cucumber roll come by more than several times, I began to wonder about its age. But still, it was pretty neat. It made me wonder why we don’t have conveyor belt tapas. Good idea? Maybe not.
