Dirty yet tasty Sushi
I went to a surprising sushi restaurant the other day. It´s in Namba, Osaka, very close to the subway. It was extremely busy and the people working there had almost no time to do more than serve customers. We were seated and that´s it. Of course if we order something, they will bring it, but only in the quickest (some might say rude) way possible.
As I was seated nearest to the kitchen, I had a clear view of what was going on inside. And to be honest, it was one of the dirtiest kitchens I have ever seen. The walls were flaking, there were food stains that looked days, weeks, who knows how old. And on the end, there was a large industrial sink filled to the brim with plastic trays of thawing fish, since they clearly don´t cut the food themselves (and I wouldn´t want them to either).
They basically just slap the pre-cut fish on sushi rice and maybe add some onions or mayo and throw it onto the conveyor belt.
The food tasted absolutely amazing. It´s like one of those burger joints you see in American movies. The dirtier it is, the tastier the food. Of course, for sushi, this seems like a bit of a gamble, and it probably is. But it´s a popular enough restaurant, with pretty good English support that, despite how filthy it is, I will gladly go there again.
I also tasted my first sausage (weiner) sushi. 10/10!
