I heart sushi!

Sushi is one of those foods that people either really love or really don’t. I personally LOVE IT!  I don’t eat sushi too often, its more a special treat type of meal.  Recently I found out about new sushi spot called Gatten Sushi Revolving Sushi Factory.  What makes this place special and not your typical sushi spot is the revolving sushi factory.  It’s basically a conveyor belt with plates of sushi and you pick what you want to eat.  I had seen this on the Food Network and thought it was such a cool idea.  I just had to try it out and see what all the buzz was about.

So here is the low down, you come in sit down at either a booth or the bar.  Then you get right to it, the sushi will be revolving right by and you pick a plate of any roll you like. The plates are color coded so you know how much each is, the yellow plates are $2 & the red plates are $3, depending on the roll each plate has about 2-4 pieces.  Those prices are so cheap for sushi.  What I liked about it theres no waiting, as soon as you sit down and see a roll you like, just grab it.  Each type of sushi is labeled so you know what kind of roll each plate has.  For those you who don’t love sushi they also offer other things, like rice, soups, salads, tempura and fried chicken.  So really something for everyone, oh yeah they also have desserts, but didn’t try any.  They have about 4 locations in Southern California at the moment, but I see the revolving sushi movement growing…LOL

Each plate has a name tag so you know what your eating.

When your done, they count your plates and give you the bill.

The sushi goes around and around, I wanted 1 of each plate.

Overall I enjoyed the sushi and the experience of the fast access.  Its a great spot for lunch during work, conveniently its located just a few miles from my office. 😉  I will say it was not the best sushi I ever ate, but not the worst.  It was good and for the price you can’t beat it.

Have you ever tried the revolving sushi? Writing this post is making me crave it, guess I will have to go for lunch tomorrow. Who wants to join me?
