Even if you’re not the biggest fan of raw seafood, fear not—there are so many other delicious options! Many items are non-traditional, such as corn and tuna sushi or avocado rolls. If sushi is a no-no for you, try the ramen or soba noodles and fried dishes…or stick to your sweet tooth with desserts and fruits. At a conveyor belt dining spot, you’re the boss of the portions and food combinations—no one can stop you! It makes for a great spot to visit with friends who have a different taste in food, or families with picky little eaters around.

This chain is a personal favorite of my friends and family. With so many locations its known, tested, and trusted by many across the country . Next time you see the Hamazushi sign, take a peek inside—you won’t be able to resist the food you see!
