had the dollar sushi for lunch on Saturday in fact. it worked.

you've literally NEVER been to a sushi joint with a check off menu?

They're ubiquitous enough to the point where I feel like any person with a moderate penchant for sushi would have been to a place with one.

never. i didn't even know it was a thing until 30 minutes ago.

It's pretty common in these fusion sushi joints run by Koreans.

It's I think from kaitenzushi. If you don't sit at the bar and sit at a table instead you check off a paper like dim sum and somebody brings your plates

just texted booth a pic of a young azn female taking a picture of her food with a big camera. i love it when stereotype fulfillment happens right in front of me.

the more i think about it, the more i like the index card and pencil idea. i see it the same way i see Seamless - we stopped calling in to restaurants because half the time the people on the other line could barely speak english, so orders could get fucked up easily (like it did for me the other day at a Chinese restaurant when I thought they had apple pie but instead it was just a giant plate of pineapple). Seamless is much more clear with the "i want item 8 and item 14, chicken).

Well, I wasn't trying to quantify market space, was just showing amazement someone I know likes sushi had never seen the check off list. Also, depending what part of the country you live in, hole in the wall sushi/ramen places rock. Our favorite place for ramen is also our second favorite place for sushi and it's a hole in the wall.

But at least you've seen the check off list.

My favorite fish taco place in LA does the check-off ordering thing. I consider it part of its charm.



*Image from the interwebz. I've never actually noticed the tofu option there before, and can't imagine ever checking that.

At least it appears you have survived all you can eat sushi and all you can drink sake.

It was awful. I mean, the sushi was good, but I felt like I had a bowling ball in my stomach at the end of the night.

i cannot assess the validity of your review if you're "not a fan of pork".


red flags.
