sushi is loaded
onto either a moving belt or water trough...I ate at one of those in San
Francisco's Japan Town, where the sushi dishes were placed onto  
little boats
that floated around in front of you.  Kind of like dim sum in that  
your bill
was calculated based on the number and color of the plates you  
collect.  >>>

Interesting. Also sounds like it could get expensive, real quick. I  
assume they explain the color and price scheme when you first sit  
down. Still, it reminds me of why I don't like cafeterias. I hate to  
get half-way down the line and then realize I really want what I'm  
now seeing rather than the item(s) I picked up earlier. Or that my  
total is a lot more than I expected because I want that, and that,  
and that. Probably also made worse because with my eyesight I can  
seldom read the menu (if one) at the start of the line.

Are these sushi boats labeled with what is on them? Or do you pick  
items based more on what they look like and what they might be, than  
knowing what they actually are? I can understand that there might be  
a considerable difference in price between different sushi items,  
depending upon what is in them. Fresh tuna vs. something else etc.   
Since my wife abhors even the idea of sushi, the only sushi I've had  
was at a relatives or a buffets where it is one price for everything.
