Yooji sushi

Tasty, but the costs add up!

Ok, sushi is not what one always thinks of first, when one thinks of food in Switzerland. But tonight we were looking for something a little different, so we stopped into Yooji’s and down to their basement dining room. There, a continuous train of sushi circulates past the customers seated on stools around the central kitchen area. Many tempting treats scoot by…

Yooji’s sushi bar, with a rotating track filled with a variety of sushi.

The price is determined by the color of the plate, as in other such restaurants. One cool feature of this shop is that you can remove a plate from the track, set it on the “infopoint” at your place, and the small iPad-like tablet in front of you will show a photograph and description of the item, in case you are wondering about the ingredients. Don’t like what you see? put it back on the track. Want to order a drink, or something special? Tap the tablet and point at what you want.

After our meal, a stack of plates and bowls derive the cost. Note also the Infopoint.

When finished, the staff come by to account for your plates. Brace yourself for the bill!
