While I would have gladly spent every meal at Otomezushi, sadly that option was not open to us. Fortunately, Kanazawa has a number of good eateries around town.
The Omicho Market
Our first stop on Kanazawa’s eating extravaganza was the Omicho Market – an outdoor shopping arcade for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and seafood.
Man those hairy crabs look good.
The market is also home to many small restaurants. Since the seafood was a local specialty Mrs. Selfish and I decided to try a rotary sushi restaurant. The fish was fresh, and tasty – though more expensive then the rotary sushi in Kyoto.
We ended up special ordering a few orders of tuna belly, since I couldn’t get enough after Otomezushi. Unlike our last rotary experience, they added up the bill by a color-coded system. The color of your plate indicated the cost. While I’ve seen that done in a few rotary sushi joints, I’ve never seen them add it up via the use of a sushi-plate scanner.
The total came to around 1700 yen (~$17), which was pretty good for a sushi lunch.
Verdict: Tasty and well priced, but nothing special.
