There’s a crazy-cute conveyor belt sushi restaurant called SushiRu chugging along on the second floor of the Megapolis in Kagyeong Dong (across from the bus terminal).
So hop aboard for a unique dining experience.
If you’ve never visited a sushi train before, you’re in for a treat. Popular in Japan, this style of restaurant is ‘pay as you go.’ All the tables are clustered around a conveyor belt with a sushi chef in the middle. Watch the chef as he slices and dices delicious treats and puts them on the belt before you. Don’t get to caught up in the action, though, or you’ll miss the tasty treats as they pass you by. Once you’ve spotted something you want to eat, simply pluck it off the belt and nom to your hearts content. Each plate has a different color with a designated price, at the end of the night the server will count your tower of plates and calculate your total. Each meal is served with a complementary green salad and unlimited miso soup.
SushiRu offers a variety of sushi options, some authentically Japanese and others expressing a more Korean fusion flavor. Kimchi Sushi anyone? On a Wednesday evening, the belt was teeming with shrimp, tuna, salmon, fish roe, tempura, and even melon.
If you don’t see something you like on the conveyor why not take a peek inside the menu? The menu is pretty extensive, but doesn’t have any English. Luckily the servers are friendly, speak a bit of English, and are only too willing to help you out.
The prices were reasonable, with plates starting at 1,500 won and going as high as 6,000 won. For 8,500 won, lunch specials include whole tray of sushi and your choice of sides like noodles or salad.
For dessert, definitely give the green tea ice cream a try. It’s creamy, smooth and delicious.
SushiRu is open from 11:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and even has a take out option.
So if you’ve been craving some sushi, or maybe just a fun place to grab a bite, get your caboose to SushiRu.
