Get your sushi fast and fresh off the Bullet Express at Genki Sushi. This amazing double-rail technology can be found at the Pearlridge Center Uptown location and also at many of Genki Sushi’s eateries across the state.
The Bullet Express is a lightning-fast sushi conveyor method in the form of a cool train system, delighting guests of all ages. Customers place their orders on touchscreen tablets and soon the mouthwatering food races over to their tables.
Firmly devoted to quick, affordably priced delicious sushi in a family-friendly environment, Genki serves a smorgasbord of nigiri, gunkan, rolls, bowls, fried items and more to please all palates. Among some of the items on the restaurant’s menu are Spicy Bomb, California Temaki and Poke Roll.
Don’t forget to leave room for dessert, because Genki Sushi offers sweet treats like mochi ice cream, chocolate cupcakes and more. Additionally, the takeout menu offers lip-smacking selections such as Chicken Karaage, set menus, or hefty Party Platters for those special social occasions.
Genki Sushi’s story originated in 1968 with the vision of Fumio Saito, a 24-year-old Japanese sushi chef who pioneered the concept of “kaiten sushi,” which is the use of a moving conveyor belt to serve sushi. This technique melds traditional sushi with advanced technology.
‘BOWLED’ OVER BY GREAT TASTE
Some of the tastiest traditional Japanese dishes are served in a bowl lined with delicious rice. A few of such offerings are Teriyaki Chicken Bowl, Spicy Tuna Bowl and Kalbi Bowl.
Another delicious item at Genki Sushi that perfectly embodies this notion is Sukiyaki Bowl ($4.75 at most Oahu locations, $4.95 at Ala Moana Center location), which comes with a generous helping of finely sliced juicy beef cooked until tender. This mound of meaty goodness rests gently atop a mountain of white rice to soak up the luscious flavor. Red ginger and green onions make up the colorful garnish that crowns this dish.
