Sushi Bar Genki
I wanted to go to Matsuri, next door, but those lazy bums are having their one day off a year.
There's a giant conveyor belt of food in the middle, but all the seats around it are taken.
I'm seated along the wall. There's an iPad here, which I'm told I can order from. I can also just grab things from the conveyor belt. I'll see if that's possible. This iPad is mounted to the wall, at a 90° to me.
Slow braised salmon cheeks with vegetables.
This has a reasonably strong fish taste, in a very sweet sauce, much like honey chicken would have.
The whole thing is cold. It's possible to ask someone to heat up your dish, but I don't know how hot a dish is (or whether it needs heating.)
The dish contains a massive amount of scale, skin, and both large and small bones, all connected. I have to spit out my whole mouthful at one point.
Excellent tip: you can clean sticky hands by using the condensation on the outside of your drink. I do this all the time. :)
This is brought to me by the waitress ("worker" might be more appropriate.)
I marvel at its beautiful presentation for a moment.
I have no idea what this little tub is. Looks like soy sauce. Turns out to be a kind of a maple syrup.
This dessert is surprisingly not awful. It's a heavy mousse, with the recognisable but light flavours of both yogurt and apple. The maple syrup isn't quite an appropriate sauce here, but it's in the ballpark.
This place doesn't quite qualify as the McDonald's of Japanese food. The quality isn't high enough. You should only come here if you're both poor and Japanese.
