Thanks, Kgirl! I'll check out your additional photos. Oh, man....I am so going to have to treat myself to sushi at my fave little place here, and very soon. Craving it now, thanks to the recent threads.

Nice box lunch!
Not a sushi joint but lately we've been going to Japanese taverns (izakaya). Little Tokyo is close by and there are a few izakayas there and most are open til past midnight. Most all dishes are ala carte and we usually order yakitori and sashimi, among other appetizers.
One such tavern is Shin Sen Gumi, very popular here in LA if you're in the area. They have several locations here.

We use to get take-out lunch alot in Honolulu at the nearby okazu-ya (there's several all over town), like a japanese deli, all ala carte ordering... you make your own box lunch with whatever goodies you like, ooh! I must stop! I haven't had a okazu-ya in a while. MMM, that and dim sum, oh gosh! there's this take-out place next door to where I use to work, oooooooooooh!

I use to LOVE genki sushi, one of the fun places I always took people that would come to visit.

I also miss Curry House co-co ichiban, so ono.

Japanese curry houses are so different from Indian Curry, don't you think? I see there's some on the mainland too. I guess the next time we go to California, I'll need to explore more of the possibility of 'local foods'.

I would love to hear more about everyone's Sushi Bar experiences

For me, some of the best sushi bar experiences came from having 'omakase', where your sushi chef decides what to serve you in and in what particular order.

Many sushi joints do this. Sit in front of your favorite sushi guy and just ask. Most will be more than happy to serve you in this manner. Tell him what you don't like up front, otherwise, anything goes. And don't forget to buy him a beer.....but not too soon......you don't want him buzzed...
Now, OTOH, there are also high end sushi joints that only serve omakase. I've never been to one of those....

There's a sushi place a ways from us that we tried when we first moved here... we made our "tick marks" on the yellow sheet they handed us and gave it to the sushi chef (I use that term very loosely, I highly doubt he was trained in the correct manor of sushi making).
He looks at it, looks up at us and says,
"that's too much, you can't eat all this".
REALLY!?
To us, sushi is a meal, not an appetizer.
It was horrid! We never went back.
So I make "cheat Kappa Maki"

Sitting At The Sushi Bar So here we are back home in Hawaii. One of many restaurants that is a MUST for us is Genki Sushi. This is a chain that orginates in Japan. [I]LOVE IT![/I] Small plates are filled in the back kitchen, and placed on a conveyor belt, that goes around the room. You can either sit at a stool/counter, or at a table next to all of this lusciousness going by you. You grab any plate you like (please don't put it back though) as many as you like, and you pay by the plates color. [ATTACH]21917[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]21918[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]21919[/ATTACH] I never thought to tally up our feasts before Buckytom brought this up on a different thread... My closest count for both of us on this visit is 52 pieces, a bowl of edamame, two miso soups, one somen salad, one teri-chicken bowl, one karaage chicken, and two orders of baked mussels. Our tab was under $40 USD [I]including[/I] tip! Oh, did I meantion it's BYOB? :pig::pig: (2 little piggy's, :lol:) 3 stars 1 reviews
