Katie was excited to try sushi with sea urchin in it. I was excited about my apple juice. Life was good for all.
Except Katie wasn’t the biggest fan of the urchin – but trying new things was exciting!
Sometimes the food that goes by is intriguing, and you must try it, just to know. Just for the experience.
And sometimes it has a lot of purple tentacles and you think, “Maybe there’s a reason so many of these are going by. No one else grabbed them either.” And you think, “Maybe next time, mysterious tentacled sushi.”
Oyster tempura sushi is great! Putting the whole thing in your mouth at once is a mistake that I may have made – the difficulty level for handling that with grace is 5 stars.
Mass consumption and the aftermath.
Rina helped us out by ordering our desserts for us. And then. Cake came out on the conveyor belt.
And everything was right with the world.
The check was 4,989 yen for a meal that fed six hungry Kitazono girls.
38 plates of sushi + 1 box of apple juice + 1 mystery item + 2 orders of macha ice cream and + 4 slices of cake
= 831.5 yen per person = 8.97 USD = best meal deal ever
