Sushiland



We met Cabel for lunch today at the new Marine Polis/Sushiland in NW Portland near his office. And since Eric hasn't seen the kids for the last couple of evenings, he came too! Super yummy and fun. What could be better than sushi and sashimi inching it's way past your table on a clever winding conveyor belt? Max is fascinated by the whole concept and was a giggling heap of silliness when Cabel put Max's Playmobil skeleton on the conveyor belt for a long cicrcuitious ride. It made it's way past some chuckling diners, through the kitchen, and was momentarily kidnapped by two bandana-wearing sushi-eating bikers before riding along once again back into Max's eager hands. I really thought that Max might pee his pants from the laughing and the anticipation of the whole ordeal. Too funny.

There's a place here in town with a conveyor belt that I've been wanting to go to. Trying to get up the courage to bring the kids--I can just see them touching everything. Sounds like you guys had a blast. The pictures say it all.

Skeletal sushi, why would anyone notice that?

We love that place--my full punch card will attest to it! Kira loves that they have "trainer" chopsticks--so awesome for little hands. I love that they have veggie sushi that doesn't taste like fish. :) We should go together sometime.

I love envisioning Max laughing so hard! Reminds me of the beginning of Laverne and Shirley when they put their gloves on the bottles at the brewery (only way cuter). I love to see him smile. ;)
