episode 61 season 1
Todays episode I’m goig to review Point sushi. 34:09 You order on an Ipad pick your favourite and they come shooting out on a streamlined system at bullet speed beside you – watch your fingers and enjoy the episode.
Point sushi has been opened for 7 month before we discovered this place. It’s located at? Pretty good sushi and served on a butelt train car.
As we sit a peruse the ipad style of menu, and get tea, right besie me there’s a hot water tap to refill your tea cups and pot at your convenience, but it is hot. We’re situated in a bench seat at the back
I want coke London says. To clarify she doesn’t drink pop typically, once in a while for a treat but can you hear the confidence in her voice – like this is standard, it isn’t people
As we’re trying to figure out the menu – you sort of feel like using the ipad is foreign at first lol but you press all of the buttons to get it to work and order things 1 by 1 – it’s an interesting process. Especially with the ipad mounted securely to the table.
As we are mulling pictures over, the bullets of food go shooting by, at records speeds.
Jeff says tea would be good for me, London really wants to order ice tea, honestly people she never finishes her drinks, she likes the idea of a coke or an ice tea but in the end it’s a $3. glass sitting almost full on the table as we walk away…
4:15 Mom look – as another tray go wizzing by, this place is great entertainment for the kids and the parents.
4:54 now we are order, first we ordered these fried that come with a ‘shaker’ powder to put on them under hot foods, then we order salmon…as a side note when we first started taking London for sushi at like 2 years old, she wasn’t sure about all of this texture. She said to us is this really good mom? We said yes gave her a small piece of raw salmon then, she held her little hand out to her dad and more, he slapped a full piece of salmon into her hand and she was hook-line and sinker – in love with Sushi! Not the easy rolls but full on raw fish.
as we ponder the menu and order our tea and water when it shows up the cups just have tea bags in them…the water is self serve.
London is sitting across from me closest to this conveyor belt of sorts and she points and get’s close..it’s funny listening to Jeff and I we can still get away with some extreme measures to get our points across – it will cut your fingers off lol
ordering our rolls, it’s nice because you can see all of the pictures
small unagi rolls which is bbq’d eel, it’s a sweet bbq flavoured eel and it’s delicious.
It’s distracting in here it’s very busy and everyone is doing what we are doing reviewing the menu selecting and tapping their choices plus taking in the scene. There is a whole bunch of single or two people lined up along the wall beside us, they got this down pat, the dishes are situated, with napkins, ginger, soya sauce, chopsticks etc you just sort of help youself.
you have to order each and every item lol
Jeff and I are trying to solve how this system works
is when we figureout how to get napkins etc, I had to figure out what was going on…being observement pays off, less salty and or regular soya – which do you prefer?
Don’t you love a good set of chopsticks, that don’t come out of paper – that have been washed
nice chopsticks and good tea – what else do you need at a good sushi place..oh the food, it’s coming.
Fries arrive, the order is a little small but it’s fun to create this paper bag of potatoe sticks. Adding powder at a time until the flavour is where you want it to be… 18:39 the fries are really good – who doesn’t love fries and dipping them in mayo – ME!
the water still hasn’t arrived, we got our tea already but still no water…listen to London, she’s so cute, have some tea while we still wait for the
we finally get our water and it’s served in glass, glassware
We are filling up our teas with the table faucet of on-demand hot-water, but it comes out super slow, so just be patient (you don’t have to be as patient as waiting for the glass’ of water tho lol) 32:35 jasmin tea, in hand filled tea bags…such good earthy tea flavour
This is a fun place, it’s got a good vibe, busy and clean, and new 33:34 You know what creates a good vibe, is when people areound you are having a good time also…we could feel the energy in this place and all of the people were having a great time.
we are still reviewing the menu, picking this and pondering that…since we are pescatarians when we eat together (you know me I’m flexible). the pan fried shrimp dumpling…
22:25 our food starts to arrive, this is so fun, it stops perfectly beside our table.
One thing I love about Japanese culture and style of food is their pride in displaying tiny things. Weather it be sushi perfectly positioned on a plate just so or quilting and stitching it’s the smallest detail that is perfect. Growing up with my dad being a chef food display and preparation was so important. The Japan style just takes this up one more notch!
the food is turning out to be really good, fresh and well put together 31:04
yes we are thoroughly impressed with the food, London and Jeff love the caviar black and pink. the Shrimp balls are just like when you go for dimsum but….better they are pan fried, steamed shrimp dumplings 35:46 and 39:11 black and white ninja roll – so good!
London is talking to the bullet car as we’ve already unloaded it but it’s not leaving yet…how does this mysterious tray know when to go? Is it by weight, by magnet or is it timed?? Do you know?
Keep on eye on things
you can monitor your time what’s been delivered and how long you’ve been waiting – it’s a Calgary thing we are a demanding culture? the ipad is securely place at the edge of the table so it’s only really convenient for th epeople on that end, not the other side…one person controlls the ship! 29:18
We are pretty adventurous however we are western Canadian people, not sure if I would try snail kimchi, would you?
checking out the menu and reviewing what we have eaten…I hear this voice say to me, watch out or something listen…move your hand please…yikes!
Not as effective telling Jeff but when I tell London…39:54 careful it would have skinned my hand alive hahaha
London excuses herself to go to the restroom (which also means she wants to explore the restaurent and people further) while she’s gone we review the menu further – yes people there’s lots of choices. As she’s coming back I spot her out of my peripheral and in the Moss house we always scare each other – like I mean scare the pants off. So you’ll be brushing your teeth and open the door and BOOOO someone will scare you to death…it’s been going on for years since jeff and I met. Even the cat gets it – so as were sitting there jeff’s sort of facing the back of the restaurent and London comes up and scares him, 38:26 – even in a restaurant you’re never safe!
we review the final tally of our order we let London review this…
some of you might remember my episode of the robber in our garage, this is still sitting with London…I try to change the topic. 44:55
