If you've never had kaitenzushi before, each plate has a couple of pieces on it, and whatever you want, you just grab off the train. Or if you wait too long to make up your mind, you can ask your friends to grab it for you...or hope it comes around again. The plates are color-coded according to their price, and at the end, the waitress just adds up the values of all your plates. I don't know how much I care for conveyor belts delivering our food, but there was one great thing about it. We didn't have to wait long for our food, which is a constant problem with grub club. That meant we had the time to visit Five's favorite place - Ti-Amo, conveniently located right across the street - for ice cream.
At first I was not impressed. They didn't have the variety that I loved about Sho - or the cute, Cali-trained sushi chef (owner???) who came over and talked to me and Five when I dragged her there last Saturday after visiting the orphanage (we were also offered free wine, and then beer on that visit - I've never felt so bad about having to decline a drink before!) But there is something nice about getting to see your choices before you make them, and all the dishes that we took off the train were really fresh.
