Sashimi Anyone?

IMG_9083aYesterday we went out for an evening of sashimi. There is a Japanese restaurant within a block of our residence at  Compass Living, so at about 6 p.m. we took a short walk and arrived a few minutes later.

The first thing we saw was fresh sushi and sashimi on small plates that were traveling on a moving transport system up and down the sides of a counter. All the restaurant seats were lined up at this counter so if you wanted an appetizing dish you simply took it off this moving belt.

Menus were given to us right away. There were so many choices and it all looked so scrumptious it was hard to choose. We ordered a plate of sashimi and began taking plates off the conveyor system too. We wanted it all!

Our tea arrived and we dove in on our plate selections with gastronomic pleasure. Excellent!

After half a dozen dishes our bill with tip came to 500VNDong or about US$25. We couldn’t have eaten this amount of Japanese food for as low a price in the States. What a deal!
