conveyor belts


Today for lunch me and the lady went to Fat Fish in Koreatown for some sushi.  We sat at the bar which features Kaiten aka the conveyor belt action that brings those delicious little plates around.  Mon-Sat all the sushi is 50% off from 11am-3pm and again from 5pm-10pm.  

We had a wide variety of dishes and plates which only totaled $27.60 and left us both happy and full of fish.  Much like polar bears

The key to Kaiten style sushi is to pick a balance of new items you have never had before while adding some old favorites to insure a good dining experience.  It also helps to sit near the chef because you can ask him for something you don't see on the belt.

The Nigiri was pretty solid.  Good ratio of fish to rice and all the seafood was fresh and well cut. The rolls had well thought out flavor combinations and looked great.  This place has a modern interior (much like a sexy spaceship) and a relaxed atmosphere.  Pair all this with good service and you are left with a quality sushi spot that is both cheap and fun.

So far, Fat Fish is the best 'Fast Food' sushi place I have tired.  Better than Frying Fish or Sushi Mac.

Side note: They did not charge us for either our Miso soups or my side of spicy mayo.  It is the small things like this that make me comeback for seconds.
