Today I want to talk about popular Japanese sushi bars, which are called Kaitenzushi (sushi bar conveyor belt). This type of bar has appeared thanks to the idea of a conveyor belt used in the factories of beer. I often use such a bar to have lunch. The History of the land began in South Asia, where the cooked rice were used for the preservation of fish. Peeled and cut into small pieces of fish sprinkled with salt and mixed with rice, after which was placed under a press of the stones. For several months there was a process of fermentation of rice and fish, making fish remained usable throughout the year. Around the VII century via China and Thailand this method of conservation was spread in Japan. In the XIX century one of the chefs from Tokyo has decided to completely abandon marinating the fish and serve the fish raw.
The process of cooking down to a few minutes. New Sushi populyarnost.Kogda quickly won a land considered a luxury, now – this is everyday food. Kaitenzushi first was opened in Osaka in 1958. Dishes with sushi conveyor belt to move between the sitting visitors, who are themselves chosen by those dishes that they like. Payment is by the number of plates. In most bars conveyor moves in a clockwise direction, which is convenient to visitors who use the right hand. The study showed that the optimal time which is a plate of sushi should be located in front of the visitor so that he could choose a dish – 6 seconds. The advantages of such a bar are obvious: you do not wait until you are served a meal, the price of each dish depends on the type plate on which it is served, you can sit and enjoy meals as long as there is a mood. Now these bars about 5000 in Japan. Abroad, they have too. More on Japan is available here:
