As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently visited the Big Island of Hawaii. While I was there, I had dinner once more at the ‘fast-food’, conveyor belt-style sushi chain, Genki Sushi. This time I visited their location in Kona. To read more about my food experiences in Hawaii, please click the Hawaii tag!

Like a lot of conveyor-belt places, there was a menu which we could order off of, as well as taking items from the belt. I did order a few things, and while I was waiting for them to arrive I took a spicy tuna “volcano” roll from the belt. Usually I find the items on the belt to be of lower quality than the ordered items, but this was actually pretty good!

Of course I had to order the Ikura…. (they were ok – not spectacular, but also not bad.)

…and I placed an order for Agedashi Tofu as well. (It really needed a lot more flavourful sauce for my liking.)

I also ordered Tobiko as well… (also just fine)

… and finally I also had the chopped scallop roll – which like the other items, was just fine.

My non-sushi-loving companion had the teriyaki chicken bowl (which she said was fine, and a decent price for quite a bit of food) and a plate of stuffed mushrooms (which seemed to be stuffed with volcano sauce, mushroom, and crab meat) which she said were fantastic. I really expected her to take a second plate of them off the belt!
