Sakae Sushi is a Japanese restaurant. Most notable for the conveyor belt sushi, though the menu also offers a range of typical à la carte items, such as grilled dishes, noodles, rice plates, etc.
The food was strictly mediocre. The first couple plates that I tried frankly weren’t that great, but it just made more sense to buy into the all-u-can-eat “buffet” after the third. Most of the rolls consisted of something cooked/processed (e.g., canned tuna, imitation crab). The worst part was the rice: using local rice, which is fluffy, water seemed to have been added after the fact to make the grains stick together. And yet, I dunno, for whatever reason, I still kinda liked them. By the end of the meal, I was stuffed and satisfied. But I doubt that I’d ever go back.
