We like Kura Sushi, and not just because it was featured in the New York Times.
It's clean....family friendly....and cheap (105 per plate).
I took a bunch of pictures last weekend so you can pretend you're there, too. Some of them are blurry (sorry). After all, it's a conveyor belt. Moving, moving, moving....
I think this is tuna--with egg and negi.
Whoa! Who put this temaki here?
What the...? It's sweet potato. Maybe. Maybe mixed with azuki bean paste.
Yes, it is. It's corn.
Yes, with mayonnaise. Want some?
Didn't try this one either.
This one? I tried it. Salmon, onion, and avocado. It was good until I hit the splash-of-mayo. Why do they DO that?
Hugo and Alek's new favorite is ikura. (as in..."ikura, squishy salmon roe like dabby dots of jelly. Salty on my lips, and yummy in my belly!") Raise your hand if you ever read this book to my kids.
Oh, and kani, sweet kani. We ate about 25 plates of this last Sunday.
Nope, didn't try it. Not even for 105 yen. Too prehistoric. Too large. Too weird.
These egg things were in our osechi ryori. But we didn't fall for it again.
A modern twist--here's hamburger-patty sushi. Can you say, "hambaahguu?"
And some kind of beef thing.
"Natto? As in, fermented soybeans?"
(By the way, nice haircut.)
Every five plates, we check to see if we won a prize.
A few more treats....an onigiri...
So...how was that? Are you more adventurous than we are? Kurt, is there anything here you would not have tried ?
