The best part of Japan? Definitely the sushi. I love it! I’m a huge foodie, so Japan is a food paradise for me. From the bakeries to the restaurants, Japan never disappoints me with their food. Now that I’m in South Korea… I’m realizing just how good I had it! To be honest, Korean food isn’t my cup of tea. I don’t like spicy food and I don’t eat pork so that cuts out a lot of my options. I’ve been in severe Japanese food withdrawal!
So to reminisce a little bit, I thought I would revisit my favorite sushi restaurant in Okayama. I used to hit up the Kaiten Sushi, or Conveyor Belt Sushi restaurant, down the street from my apartment because it was super delicious and cheap! The fish served here is a lower grade, but I can’t really tell. Each plate has two pieces of sushi and there are so many to choose from! There are some special dishes for a little more like fried chicken and ice cream as well.
Sushi is my special treat during the week. After the work week, I treat myself to a huge sushi dinner! It’s really motivating and I really look forward to it every week. Even though it’s not very expensive, it still adds up over time and I really want to stay in the habit of cooking at home.
When I came to Korea, I saw a conveyor belt sushi restaurant and it was so expensive! My favorite sushi is the Unagi (Eel) and I was shocked to see it for 7,000 won! Compared to the 105 yen sushi in Japan, the price is too expensive. I can eat seven servings in Japan for the price of one in Korea. It looks like my sushi days are numbered here…
Hmm, I’m craving it now!
Q: Sushi in Okayama was my greatest pleasure in Japan! Did you ever travel overseas and fall in love with a certain dish?
