Kura Sushi offers plenty of fun, flavorful dishes
For the past year, a lot of my friends have been telling me about Kura, a revolving sushi bar-restaurant. So even though sushi is something I indulge in every once in a while, I still decided to go there to see what it was all about and try different types of sushi that I’ve never tried before.
How it works is you sit at a booth and sushi plates come to you from a revolving bar that goes through the whole restaurant. Each plate costs $2.35 no matter how much sushi is on the plate. There could be one, two, four or more, all plates cost the same. After you finish eating your plate, you slide it to the side of your table and the screen above you counts how many plates were eaten out of. And after every 15 plates, a prize is given.
My friends and I ate about 26 plates and we were bloated by the time we finished. It was a really fun experience trying out new types of sushi like Masago and Negitoro, they were full of flavor and very tasty. But I also tried some random ones that turn out I’m not a big fan of, like squid and octopus sushi. They were slimy and way too chewy and extremely hard to swallow.
I left the restaurant feeling full and excited to come back, but with a wounded wallet. I can’t judge whether it was expensive or not since I don’t go to sushi restaurants too often.
I think the cost is doable, but mostly for a high schooler with a good job… or parents with good money. And for that sole reason, I don’t think I’ll be going often, but it is a place that I’ll be sure to visit again sometime.
