On Monday night my host family took me to a conveyer belt sushi restaurant along with my host mother’s parents. It was a very interesting experience! We all had hot tea to drink. There were cups and teabags at the table, and we got hot water by pressing our cups against a spout at the edge of the table, just below the conveyer belt. To get out sushi we just grabbed the plates of sushi from the conveyer belt as it went by. We also ordered some specific pieces from the chefs in the middle. The chefs were in the middle of the conveyer belt loop, making the sushi. When they made some sushi, they just put it on the conveyer belt.
The sushi itself was delicious! My favorite was the cooked salmon. The shrimp was also very good. I ate a lot of things I’d never had before. My host family didn’t know the English names for them, so they showed me pictures of the animals on their phone. I had squid, eel, sea urchin, and many other things. I even had something with large fish eggs in it, the size of loquat seeds, that looked just like the eggs from Finding Nemo. Overall, it was a very new, exciting and delicious diner.
