Kyodai Rotating Sushi Bar Restaurant Review

: The Slow Food movement notwithstanding, fine food and instant gratification are not mutually exclusive. Exhibit A: sushi. Exhibit A-plus: Kyodai Rotating Sushi Bar, one of many Japanese restaurants in Towson, but by far the most fun. Kyodai is novel in several ways---including its dark, brick-lined, Asian-steakhouse d├ęcor---but the real innovation, a first for the Baltimore area, is the curving oval sushi bar, topped by a moving conveyor belt. Nimble-fingered chefs create an assortment of jewel-like sushi, arrange them on small plates, top with a clear lid, and set them on the conveyor, ready to be snapped up by eager sushi mavens. Each plate is color-coded according to the cost of the offering. What will it be: a quartet of maki, each topped with fish roe of a different color? Crunchy spiced tuna rolls draped with slices of raw fish and avocado? A cool seaweed salad sprinkled with sesame seeds? Friendly, attentive servers stand ready to answer questions, take special orders (yes, there's a full menu of non-sushi items), and count the plates. Free parking is available upstairs in the Towson Commons lot.
