Sushi train? ?

Have you seen this before? Sushi train? This is invented by a Chinese in Japan. Interesting? The price of each plate on the railway is 30 NTD. Or waiter will tell you how much does a dish cost by the color of that plate.

What is in front your table? Chopsticks, tea bags & hot water tap. Usually, Japanese eats with a hot cup of tea. That's the reason for tea bag & hot water tap in front of you. :) Of course, there are also wasabi & soy sauce.

There is not sushi only, there are also sashimi, steam egg, soup & etc. All 30 NTD for 1 plate. Thet put those food on plates. :) Of course, if the food is expensive, they will put a liitle in a plate. :) 30 NTD? yes, still the same. So, how much in quanity do you think you can eat for 1 plate? Of course the owner won't put too much food on a plate. :)

    why do you think the taiwanese are obsessed with japanese food and culture? don't you think it's kind of odd that the people who were occupied by Japan and ruled by Japan now voluntarily soak in everything about the japanese?
    I love japanese things but I wasn't born during the occupation of japan. I guess it's a question for the older generation really.

    Choo choo sushi train--i hope it comes here sometime.

    This kind of resturants, I mean, sushi train, is very popular here in Taiwan years ago. But, now you still can find this kind of resturants here in Taiwan. Not hard. Last time, I went with my mother to a kong-tongese food resturant, same as this sushi train. The only different is what on the raiway is not Japanese food. :) Kon-tongese food. It is really very interesting to eat in this way. But, if you need to eat a lot, you will feel expensive while you pay the money. :) Sometimes, I can see parents take their young kids to eat at this place. Maybe this train can help kids to eat quietly and more. Also, sit longer ~~ha ha ha :)

    I think these places are good for foreigners who can't speak the language very well. You don't have to worry about ordering, just look and take.

    In Japan, most Kuro Kuro-zushi places are more family orientated (many things for kids and the price is cheap). However, when I lived in Japan there was a very nice Kaiten-zushi place near my house. It was a little expensive but it was really nice. some of the best sushi I ever had!

    Now that I live in Atlanta, there isn't anything like this. I wonder if it could be successful....?
