도쿄에 초밥을 먹었어요

Translation: I ate sushi in Tokyo.

One thing that was a must during my Winter Vacation in Tokyo was sushi. I mean, alongside ramen, sushi is Japan in America. Given my history of doing no research prior to any vacation, I naturally didn’t search out any amazing Tokyo sushi restaurants. Hell, sushi was on the bottom of the list of things to do, not being mentioned until our last day.

Then, when wandering around some town within sight of Mt. Fuki, we stumbled across the place.

Now Uobei is a chain restaurant in Tokyo that specializes in sushi. So I have no clue whether they’re the Japanese equivalent to McDonald’s or not. But then again, I’m about as far from a foodie as you can get, so it really didn’t matter. I mean, what’s could be a more authentic sushi experience than a chain restaurant? If you want to experience how the majority of America lives, you would go to a McDonald’s.

Authenticity concerns aside, the sushi tasted great to this outsider. Though, to be fair, the atmosphere most certainly played a role in that. The restaurant was sent up with tracks to each table so that when you ordered your sushi (via the table’s tablet), a little car would come down along the track delivering the food. Who wouldn’t love that?


As for the food itself, what can I say? I’ve already stated that I’m not a foodie. I’m a Type-I diabetic – I eat things to live. If I could get away with not eating, I’d do it. My diet consists of apples, bananas, broccoli, and lots of corn. Oh yeah, and tons of peanuts. (I’m certain the stock price of Japan’s 7-11 branch skyrocketed while I was there; mainly due to me buying peanuts all the damn time.)

So everything tasted great. As it should, since I was eating sushi in Japan. That fact alone would elevate anything.
