Is it awesome: Sure is 🙂

Today was the first day I walked without using the cam boot and decided to head out for dinner in the city. Must admit felt weird without the feeling of safety the cam boot offered, but nevertheless it had to be done.

Upon arrival it was packed. It’s no wider than around 4 metres and runs deep enough to house a maximum of 20 people in the restaurant. But the concept is great – there’s a sushi train that runs the length of the restaurant, a few tables for couples who do not wish to partake in the “count the number of rounds a particular dish has made”. I’ve never been to a restaurant with a sushi train before so was looking forward to it. But I thought about how much money can they really make seeing that the capacity is limited.

And then I realised how profitable this place can really be!

There were at least two couples before us that finished earlier than us! Don’t get me wrong, the food is great – no, it’s AWESOME – I think it is the fact that you don’t realise that it doesn’t take much to fill you up at this place! The dishes are bite sized but oh so tasty, and at the blink of an eye you have a few plates stacked in front of you and you couldn’t fit in another sashimi, even if it looks incredible.

All I can say is that you must give this place a go. Unfortunately you can’t book a table on the weekends, but wait a few minutes and there’s a great chance you’ll get a seat. Great place to just chill with one or two close mates – any more then it becomes slightly claustrophobic 🙂

Enjoy, Saifs
