Japanese Food – Kaiten zushi Gatten

This post is part of a series of Japanese food posts especially about regional cuisine, but also about everyday food like this post.

My best girly Alice and I decided to eat kaitenzushi (conveyor belt sushi) at a nearby place which is a chain called Gatten Sushi がってん寿司 (site).  It’s a casual family restaurant that has some nice quality sushi and you can walk out full for $15.00.

The sushi chefs and plates going by and plates filling up.

Many kaitenzushi restaurants have the same price for all sushi, but Gatten has a special plate color system. It’s on their pretty menu and also on a sign on the restaurant wall so it’s easy to figure out.

Delicious fresh maguro! One of my favorite things to eat! Tasty maguro only 252 yen!

So much so I got a maguro set. See the different colored plate? The fancier the plate the fancier the price it seemed.

I ate more than maguro but somehow only took pics of the maguro.  :lolpastel: :regret:

Everything was super tasty!

Sticks letting you know these sushi are free from wasabi so you can add you own. Aren’t the characters cute? No wonder so many families were in the restaurant.  :smiley:

The pretty plate for my purin. It also came with a stick warning me that it didn’t have wasabi  :lolpastel:

My plates all piled up  :up: Behind them you can see the menus. Not necessary for kaitenzushi but you can order something if you don’t see it coming out fast enough. There’s cups for green tea which you can spoon out and a hot water spicket so you can refill on your own. Signs warning you the water is hot and not to talk on your cellphone at the table.

You use your current plate for any soy/wasabi mix you want to do, there are no small extra plates like people are used to sushi places overseas.

Outside their mascot is super cute isn’t it.  :lovecat:

Kaitenzushi is tasty and it was good enough to inspire me the next day to eat kaitenzushi again  :heart:

    There’s this kaitenzushi place in shibuya where each plate is 100yen and they usually give you from 2 to 6 pieces per plate! And I think the taste is really good too! Oh and it’s not normal conveyor belt, orders are sent to you on a moving “plate” which goes back and forth from the kitchen to the tables and me and my friends find it to be totally amusing! xD I usually spend 700-800円 when I eat there. ^^ おススメ!!
