No Longer Just Cheap but Wide Variety of Unique Sushi Available!! Japanese Kaiten-zushi

Kaiten-zushi or conveyor belt sushi has been very popular among Japanese people for a long time, and nowadays, it can be easily found overseas, too.  In Japan, you will see a lot of kaiten-zushi places offering sushi as reasonable as 105 yen (US$1.00) a plate (usually consists of 2 bits of sushi) including tax.  But in times of recession, kaiten-zushi companies are now providing a wide variety of unique and creative sushi instead of just offering traditional fish sushi.

According to an article, such creative sushi includes grilled prawn sushi with cheese, lemon stake sushi and hamburger sushi!  Some places are actively adopting European ingredients to create European style sushi such as Palma ham with garlic soy sauce sushi and salmon basil sushi.

I imagine prawn with cheese should be ok as it’s still fish, and I have had beef sashimi sushi before so beef must be OK, too, but stake and hamburger!!?  It should taste ok, but I’m a bit curious how it would look like as sushi…

But such sudden expansion of unique creative sushi in Japan does not necessarily mean that traditional sushi is not popular anymore.  Majority of people still loves nice traditional fish sushi as representative by serveral grades of tuna.  It seems salmon is getting ever so popular due to a stable supply of very good quality salmon from northern European countries now.


Awwww, I love salmon, and I fancy sneaking out from my office to have some lovely sushi now!  No creative one, but traditional ones for today 😛


What do you think about today’s article?
