UPDATE 2012: THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW CLOSED
Federal Way has one, so does Lacey. Tacoma’s Sushi Revolution is my favorite. And now Puyallup’s South Hill has its first conveyor belt sushi restaurant. Sushi Land opened last week, just a few doors down from the Rock Wood Fired Pizza on South Hill.
The concept is pretty simple – a sushi chef prepares fresh sushi, placing it on a conveyor belt that rolls all around the dining room, passing by diners seated at counters or in booths. Diners reach over and pluck off the belt whatever looks pleasing. The sushi is covered with clear, plastic containers to protect from airborne germs. Some call it conveyor-belt sushi, others call it sushi-go-round or kaiten zushi…..
