Sushi World - Portland, Oregon



I have discovered a new Nirvana. It is known as conveyor belt dining. I recently ate at a restaurant that has my three favorite features: total control, highly organized structure, and my favorite--absolutely no need to interact with other humans. I was a little put off by my "Traditional" sushi being prepared by people from a completely different (think southern) continent, but no matter. The ambiance is really what makes this place pop on my list of favorite eateries.


Not to mention that all of the little plates sliding sleepily along their mechanically propelled paths were bite sized and beautifully arranged...so you can try much more than just a traditional entree. I also found, upon observing an obvious regular, that slipping a few bills to one of the chefs will get you a neat little wooden box filled with their house specialty...calamari?!? It somehow all fits though. The tiny little plates, the isolating stools facing the bustling open kitchen, even the old school hand-written bills. I've found my 'Peach Pit'.
