When I arrived it was a bit of a free for all but luckily I didn’t have to queue. Inside natural lighting was used to its optimum level. Pink orchids separated the seating area from the counter and paper thin wooden lampshades wrapped with pink ribbon hung from the ceiling, adding a colourful touch to the already buzzing atmosphere.
I was shown to my one box packed lunch which included a menu (but no prices) popcorn and a drink. It also only came with chopsticks in a ‘learn to use them or go without’ vein of thought.
Luckily around the corner were all sorts of western cutlery and a 'pimp your potsu' station with an array of sauces and seeds.
It was a real shame that there wasn’t a chance to sample more of the menu as there were several flavours of random confectionery available and the wasabi flavour popcorn that was in my packed lunch was a little too strong for my taste. The salmon sushi was fresh and tasty though I did notice some of the white ‘stringy bits’ showing it may not have been top quality fish that was used.
All in all I really do have very little to complain about and am looking forward to my next trip. Whoever said there’s no such thing as a free lunch!
Have you ever been to Itsu?
