Kaitenzushi Nemurihanamaru – Tokyo, Japan

Advertisements

I’m embarking to start writing about some of the good foods that I have tried in my recent Japan trip. As much as I wanna write some of them, they are located in alleys and do not have English names. Really irritating as I can’t share some of the awesome food I’ve tried. Maybe I should just put up the pics and maybe you guys can just use the address on the receipts to find the places? Let me know if it works for you guys!

Anyways, this Kaitenzushi Nemurihanamaru is a nice sushi conveyor belt place which I came across while walking around the Kitte Mall, just beside the Tokyo Station. The mall itself was a very interesting triangular layout and the shops there are pretty interesting as well, especially the handcrafted ones. Now I’m truly missing the place, so rich in culture, so well mannered people, love the winters, awesome food. Sigh… shall plan another trip this year! Well enough said, let my pics do the talking.

吉兆手握寿司 – Shenzhen, China

Advertisements

A couple-friend in Shenzhen asked me out for dinner recently and we decided to check this place out in Dongmen, one of the shopping places in Shenzhen. I seldom go to Dongmen reason because the place is always extremely crowded and it is a notorious place for pickpocket syndicates. Nevertheless, I would be extra careful whenever I’m in the area.

Found the restaurant which is just across the street of the new 1234 Mall, and had to wait for our table. The queue is even longer during weekends! Check out my comments with the pictures below:

Restaurant front with seats for the queue
Seated at the counter, no tables!
Cheese Balls/Uni Balls RMB$28 – Not a big fan. Cheese balls also not a lot of cheese. Can skip ordering this.
Crabstick Sushi – This is free with one of the orders!
3 orders here of Unagi sushi RMB12, Scallop Sushi RMB26 and Grilled Salmon Sushi RMB9. All 3 types are delicious!
Salmon Sashimi RMB98 – Fresh and yummy!
Some in house creation sushi RMB18 – This is not too bad.
Soft Shell Crab Handroll RMB12 – the name of the shop suggests that they are good in their handrolls. So this one is not bad.
California Handroll RMB18 – Anything with mayo taste good! 🙂
Sea-grass RMB12 – Love this, my only source of ‘veg’ for the night. Available in supermarkets also.
Salmon Tail Sushi RMB14 for 1. You get a lot of salmon in this sushi!
Charred Tiger Prawn Sushi RMB9 a pair. Semi-raw prawns… tasted quite nice but not a big fan of raw prawns though.
Forgot what’s this… But it’s nice.
Salmon Rose Sushi RMB12 – Friend’s order, should be quite good.

Overall a decent place for a good sushi meal. The freshness in the ingredients can be tasted and also witness (so crowded means the supplies are usually fresh!). Go try it and let me know if you like it too!

Tips:

  1. Go after 8pm. Half price for all the items. Not many people know. (Hope they still have this policy)
  2. Always keep your belongings in front of you. Wallets and phones in front pockets. Bags sling to the front… yes, even haversacks, in front!
