It’s kinda ironic that now that we’re in Japan, I very rarely crave for sushi. There are lots of sushi places around ranging from the high-end restaurants with crazy expensive sushi to convenience stores that sell them cheap but still taste pretty decent. Although, I really don’t care for them when it comes time to pick out where to eat for the day. There is this one place though that will always be the exception to my sushi hiatus: Moriichi in Tabata.
We were introduced to this place by the owner (Hi, Yoshi-san! 😆) of the Airbnb we stayed at when we visited Japan as tourists last year. His house is in Tabata and Moriichi is luckily just a few steps outside Tabata station so it was really easy to go there after a tiring day of touristy activities.
They make their sushi using red vinegar which makes the rice a little reddish and a bit sweet and sour. It’s really good, I can eat just the rice even without the topping! ☺ It’s a kaitenzushi (回転寿司) or conveyor-belt style bar where you can take plated sushi off of the revolving conveyor belt, or you can opt to shout out your order to the chefs and they will make it right in front of you! Moriichi is definitely our go-to sushi place even if we have to travel half an hour by train to get there. 😢
