Conveyor Belt sushi is one of the many wonderful Japanese things that us Westerners have fully embraced. Uobei Sushi is a different type of conveyor belt experience, where you get to order your sushi on a screen in front of you and then minutes later, WHOOOOSH! your sushi comes speeding out to you on a conveyor belt 'train' - it is stupidly fun!
As you can see the menu is overwhelming HUGE, so we chose the seasonal specials and then tried to pick the sushi that we don't get here back home. Here is a big picture dump of sushi!
There was maybe one real stinker in there, a couple I'll probably never order again, but overall, it was pretty yummy! It's not meant to be top quality sushi but it's still miles above what you can get here!
If the silly conveyor belt doesn't tickle your fancy then the prices will! All of the above dishes cost about 1800 JPY but when we got to the counter to pay, there was some promotion on where I got to pick a random prize out of a box and it turned out to be another 100 JPY off my bill, so in other words, all that sushi cost about £15!
(There are several branches)
The next few pictures will be the ugliest pictures of food that I'll post on this blog but it's a thing, Coco curry is a thing - any curry/junk-food/japanese-food-lovers have to try Coco curry. It's good, it's filling, it's proper junk food and you know they open 24 hr! I remember walking past the Coco curry next to the famous Piss Alley in Shinjuku - an alleyway filled with mini pubs often crowded with those having a fun alcoholic night - this was around 7 in the morning when Piss alley was quiet and sleeping but the Coco curry was full! I remember thinking 'who on earth would have curry at 7 in the morning', before connecting the curry shop to all the boozey people who have probably spent the night at Piss Alley!
The variations of curry you can have are endless, to curry flavour, spice level, topping, rice amount, veg etc.
Hah! Yes the corn salad was for so-called health and that gloopy blob on the curry is a soft boiled egg - it's a thing, that's simply a thing over here, pick whatever curry you want but please do try it with an egg!
