Conveyor Belt Sushi Is a Great Group Outing Idea When it comes to dining out, sometimes you feel like you’ve exhausted all the options. I know me and my friends often felt like we had. We have tried all those themed restaurants that just cost a lot of money for a few people dressed up in costume and some otherwise mediocre food. And we have eaten at the same old take out places again and again. It was getting boring but then we discovered the concept of conveyor belt sushi. I had never heard of it before but one of my friends had and so we decided to give it a try. The idea is simple; you sit down at a table and sushi comes out on different colored plates on a conveyor belt, hence the name conveyor belt sushi. You choose what you want to eat as it passes and it’s constantly being made fresh as people take off piece and the chefs replace them. Your plate color indicates price, so you know how much you are spending and the waiter just adds it all up in the end. There’s all kinds of great sushi to be had and when dessert comes around, it is even better! You get all kinds of options and it’s kind of hard to avoid them all, so you might eat a little more sweets than you meant to! We decided to try out this conveyor belt sushi recently and loved the idea. It was one of those kinds of restaurants that promoted a social environment, so you didn’t feel awkward trying to talk to your friends while everyone else was being quiet or feeling like you were disturbing the couple on their first date in the corner. It’s like buffet, but where you never have to get up! The food just comes to you, so you can continue to talk to your friends and not have to excuse yourself to get out of your corner seat. You also might find that you, like us, are more apt to try new and different sushi rolls. You can grab a plate and easily share it with everyone else, or hog it all for yourself if you find it delicious. But the prices are always super reasonable and easy to keep track of. You have to be a little quick though to get what you want, but it’s definitely worth it when you get that perfect shrimp tempura roll in front of you!
