When we went to Japan the second time, we made sure we ticked off every single thing on our “to-do” and “to-eat” check list. On top of that list was to eat in a Conveyor Belt Sushi Restaurant. Now we’re going to eat only once (or twice, or thrice, lol) we have to do it right hence Genki Sushi and Uobei Sushi are the top picks in Trip Advisor and other Food Review Sites. When we got to Shibuya unfortunately Genki Sushi was closed cause they were fixing their Sushi Train, how sad! 😦 But luckily I came prepared – Uobei comes to the rescue and is just a few blocks away. We had a really lovely experience and I assume Uobei Sushi and Genki Sushi is just under one umbrella of owner/s cause:
Tanannn! Back to Manila we discovered that Genki Sushi was already available in BGC for a long time already! Now, why didn’t we heard that before? We immediately rushed off to Bonifacio Stopover to see if the experience was the same and guess what? It exactly was!
Same technology – we were actually taken by surprise, just a little more on the price which is understandable. Genki Sushi is not your typical Sushi Train Restaurant – just use the touch screen menu (which was an Ipad Mini) to place your order. From here you can also view your running bill, desserts, drinks and other side dishes!
How cute! It arrives using the famous JR Train or sometimes Shinkansen (Bullet Train). Everything you need is on the table from hot water (yes, the faucet is all yours), complimentary matcha powder to make your own hot or cold tea, condiments and chopsticks.
We already went twice in just one month cause its so addicting and affordable! Our bill was just around Php700-800 for the two of us that includes 5 or more different plates of sushi and noodles. Plate ranges from Php60 to Php150 which usually includes 2-4 pcs of maki, sushi etc. The dishes were legit and I can vouch for them!
And now for my holy grail food comes…
Seared Salmon with Black Pepper – a total melt in your mouth experience, OMG!!! It took me back to Shibuya! Its fresh salmon was lightly topped with some kind of creamy sauce which makes up the whole taste.
