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.
LOVE IT!
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.

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 including tip!
Oh, did I meantion it's BYOB?

That's too dangerous for me. I wouldn't stop until the conveyor belt stopped.

Andy, you'll be there awhile!
They open at 11am and close 9 or 10 pm,
I think.
This one is located a mile from where we
used to live in Kaneohe.

Sitting At The Sushi Bar

Beautiful! I remember a place, many years ago on Maui, I think, called the Makai Grill. We could sit and listen to great live music and pick up the freshest sashimi by the piece, from the pupu bar. A buck a piece. I think we ate there at least 5 times.

Must stop next time I am there. But it will be a year or two before I go back.

Rather than take up a bunch of space, I compiled an album of all of our Sushi Bar photos. Enjoy!
