Flushing Mall Sushi no longer conveyor belt

Bill | Jun 6, 2004 09:31 PM

Went to the Flushing Mall today after the Mets game to eat at the sushi place which my son and I have eaten at the past couple of years. Much to my surprise (and disappointment), they have the conveyor belt system covered over, and the prices for individual pieces are higher than they used to be. The chef was sleeping when we got there, we had to have the guy at the other stand nearby wake him up. We ordered the sushi combo ($10,50 for 6 pieces and a tuna roll) and sashimi combo ($11 for 11 pieces, although we got 12) and those prices are pretty reasonable and the sushi quality seemed good to me. But I really liked the idea of picking the stuff off the belt as it went around. Are there any other good sushi places in the Flushing area that do the conveyor belt thing?

Oh, and the woman at the customer service desk alleged that they validate parking for a lot on College Point Blvd. Does anyone know which one? I paid $3 to park across the street (where the guy who I paid seemed disappointed that I had not gone over an hour so he didn't get to collect $6 from me).

Oh, and do any of the stands there sell the sticky rice with red bean (it was wrapped in some sort of leaf)? I had it once at the rice place there and it was very interesting but I don't see it on the Enlgish menu anymore (nor do I see them hanging there like they used to).
