  • Alright guys so far we have shown you conveyor belt sushi (Kaiten-zushi - 回転寿司) but

  • today we're going to take you to bullet train sushi (魚べい) . The premise is basically

  • the same.

  • The sushi comes out on a conveyor belt but at top speed.

  • So basically we're going to have these little screens in front of us.

  • We can select the type of sushi we want and then it is going to come flying our way and

  • stop right in front of us and we can feast like kings and queens so let's go.

  • And we've got Rob again to join us.

  • Exciting times.

  • I'm looking forward to it.

  • I've done a lot of conveyor belt sushi.

  • Yeah.

  • But this whole bullet train sushi is something different.

  • New experience for us.

  • Anything with sushi is good.

  • It'll be great man.

  • So we've just been given our numbers.

  • We are 70, 71, 72.

  • So we are now inside the bullet train sushi restaurant.

  • We are soaking wet.

  • We got rained on hard.

  • But I feel like sushi is going to make this better.

  • Alright so this is the setup we have.

  • A little tablet in front of us with a menu and then we also have a menu up here with

  • lots of pictures.

  • Great for foreigners and up top we have our tea cups, our little bowls for soy sauce and

  • also take-away boxes.

  • So Sam is going to make some green tea for us.

  • So it is green tea powder.

  • Yeah.

  • Matcha.

  • You get it in this little jar.

  • And I believe that we put it here.

  • Yeah.

  • And I'm hoping this is the hot water.

  • Yeah it feels hot.

  • Can you see the steam coming?

  • There you go.

  • That is a slow pour.

  • That is how you make green tea.

  • Yep.

  • At a sushi restaurant.

  • These are my favorites.

  • I'm going to get tuna and salmon and salmon and grilled salmon.

  • So those are going to be my first two orders.

  • So I have placed my order.

  • Now we wait.

  • And here on the side we have our chopsticks.

  • We have some napkins.

  • We have ginger, wasabi.

  • My food is here.

  • First order on the table.

  • Tuna and salmon and then double salmon.

  • This is the regular one and this one is grilled so you can see the skin is kind of crispy.

  • So yeah starting off with the classics.

  • Let's dig in.

  • One thing I've learned in Japan is that you are not supposed to drop the rice in the soy

  • sauce.

  • You have to dip the fish but this is always very tricky because for me it ends up flopping

  • out.

  • But anyways here we go.

  • First sushi here.

  • Is it good?

  • That is good.

  • I always go for salmon.

  • Yeah, that is my favorite.

  • It is a winner every time.

  • Mmmhmm.

  • And I know this is wrong I'm grabbing the wasabi and mixing it in the soy sauce.

  • That is a big no no.

  • In Japan you are supposed to put the wasabi on the first itself but it is just a little

  • easier that way.

  • I'm trying to make it extra spicy but to give it more of a kick.

  • Yeah.

  • Just like the wasabi in there.

  • It is Sam's turn to order.

  • Oh my gosh there is so many to choose from.

  • Tuna tuna.

  • There is two different salmon sections.

  • Two different shrimp sections.

  • Oh there goes someone's sushi.

  • Yeah.

  • Oh my gosh options galore here.

  • What are you in the mood for?

  • You know what I'm going to go with a salted sardine one.

  • Oh that looks really cool.

  • Tell us about first order.

  • Check this out guys.

  • A beautiful trio so over here we have the sardines.

  • Um there is nothing special about that aside from the fact that it is a sardine.

  • Oh over here we have shrimp which comes with a generous portion of onions on top.

  • Mmmhmm.

  • It is supposed to be a spicy salsa and then over her we've got salmon with more onions

  • and more mayo.

  • Lots of mayo on there.

  • Yep.

  • That is very interesting.

  • So which one are you starting off with?

  • Uh, I think I'm going to try the sardines first.

  • Okay.

  • Sardine time.

  • Time to try the sardine.

  • I don't know if I've ever had sardine sushi before.

  • I really can't remember if I have.

  • This is going to be really interesting.

  • Oh wow.

  • That is some super salty goodness.

  • It keeps getting saltier with every bite.

  • It is also quite juicy too.

  • I really like this one.

  • Yeah?

  • I would get it again.

  • It has a strong aftertaste.

  • The more you chew it in your mouth so it is definitely an interesting pick.

  • What else are you going to try there?

  • Okay next I'm going to try the shrimp with a little tail.

  • With a little tail.

  • Tail still attached.

  • Check out all of the onions on top of that.

  • Wow.

  • It is supposed to be a spicy one so we'll see.

  • Mmmm.

  • Oh wow.

  • Got the tail out just in time.

  • That is a sweet and spicy sauce.

  • It is really good.

  • I really like shrimp ones so that is one of my favorites.

  • And moving on last but not least I thought I would save probably my favorite one for

  • the end.

  • I love salmon so trying to get lots of that mayo but with onion.

  • But do you love mayo?

  • That is the question.

  • Well we'll see how that goes.

  • Should salmon have that much mayo on it?

  • That is debatable.

  • Okay.

  • I would not order that one again.

  • The thing is drowning in mayo.

  • It actually overpowers the taste of the salmon and to me that is unacceptable.

  • Yeah.

  • Scrape it off.

  • I'm going to actually scrape it off literally.

  • Next time I'll order salmon with mayo for sure.

  • Okay so here on the menu I've discovered there is a ramen section and also an udon section.

  • So you can order soups with noodles.

  • And I had not had udon since we arrived in Japan so I think I'm going to go for this

  • one.

  • Soft boiled egg and Mentaiko Udon.

  • Nice prices too.

  • Yeah, 280 Yen.

  • Super reasonable.

  • That is not bad.

  • The one to the left of it is only 150 Yen if you can believe that.

  • There is one with shrimp.

  • Tanuiki I don't know that that means.

  • You can get clams in the ramen section you can get special soy sauce ramen or another

  • one in a rich soup.

  • This looks like hot dandan noodles.

  • So yeah lots of side dishes which makes it fun.

  • Or you can go for plain miso but I'm doing Udon.

  • I'll get plain old miso.

  • Okay so when you get the soup you can play sushi roulette so let's see what happens.

  • See if you win.

  • Aw!

  • Come on!

  • We've never one at any of these things.

  • And I'm starting to get skeptical if people actually ever win at them.

  • Hahaha.

  • So we've been here for a little bit what are you first impressions?

  • This place is amazing.

  • I love how efficient it is.

  • It is also it has just got so many different things you can choose from.

  • Yeah.

  • It is a little weak in the roll department but it makes up for it in the fact that you

  • can get ramen and udon and all sorts of things.
