Yushi Introduces First Refrigerated Sushi Conveyor Belt

new conveyor beltOnce again, you’ve got to give credit to Yushi (on 47th btw. Park+Lex) for trying.  After introducing their new conveyor belt, soliciting advice from Midtown Lunchers, and then sadly turning the conveyor belt into a “for display only” situation, they’ve now changed things up again.  Today Yushi is replacing their “Spruce Goose” with the very first fully refrigerated sushi conveyor belt.

I have no idea what that means, or the technology involved, but apparently the genesis of the idea came from Yushi’s desire to have a conveyor belt you could actually take food from, while answering the customer concern that food on conveyor belts is not always fresh.  I always thought the best way to do that was by making sure your restaurant is always packed with customers constantly eating the food… but sure, crazy refrigerated conveyor belt is a good option too!  Any kaiten early adopters out there?  Feel free to report back. The conveyor belt is open daily from 11:30am to 2:30pm starting today.

  • The Spruce Goose… now air conditioned

    Looks like Luke at Yushi pulled a wild card out of the deck of conveyor sushi … refrigeration. In the chaos that ensued last time I don’t remember anyone shouting “The sushi isn’t cold enough” and doesn’t sushi taste better when the rice is slightly warm?

    …but we did say we’d give yushi the benefit of the doubt … I wonder if they rerouted the doohickey as well? The main problem I recall was that there was no efficient way to get the food onto the belt from the kitchen

  • anyone has review??
