The variety of sushi available on the actual train line was quite limited and many of their dishes were quite ordinary however I would assume that could order certain sushi plates out of their menu. Nevertheless I continued to eat away the night!
I'm not exactly too sure what the green sprinkles are but if I was to have a wild stab at it perhaps it could be ... ahh ... ok I have no idea lol *fail*. Though I believe the 'mushroom' or vegetable that tasted a bit like a mushroom was a good accompanient to have with the tempura prawn. Clearly as per my above description, you can tell that that was the first time I have both seen and tasted it lol.
I was actually quite surprised by the amount of salmon served in the roll - it was actually quite a generous serving and an extra surprise because it was still part of the $3.00 plates.
I am personally not a big fan of eel and especially with terriyaki but this tasted better than I had expected. It wasn't drowned in terriyaki sauce and the eel tasted quite fresh unlike some other places where you it may be a tad dry.
This was the highlight dish from the train line mainly since it was freshly made (as in we ate it 10 seconds after it was made) =D. The salmon wasn't burnt and the blow torch made the salmon taste quite scrumptious in conjunction with the bottom half that was slightly raw.
Seafood hotpot - crab, oysters, octopus, prawn, squid and assorted vegetables to be served in either a spicy or non spicy soup - $10.00
Even though it was spicy, the soup was both sweet and spicy which made it well balanced and thus reduced the actual spiciness by a touch. What was dissapointing was that they had used can prawns that were minute as however they were quite generous with their crab and oysters which I guess made up for it. This was definately the highlight dish of the night so I guess it was worth the wait =).
Service was slightly a bit disappointing - I had ordered the seafood hotpot shortly after my arrival however it didn't come out till at least 30 minutes later. I personally didn't really mind because I was still able to eat off the sushi train but the waiter didn't even ask if I wanted spicy or non-spicy and by the time I had asked if it was non-spicy it was already too late. I guess partially it was my fault however it would have been nicer if they did ask me =/.
