Dining at Baguio Genki Sushi 2022
=)

My, did the days from January (My last posts.) go by. I hope 2022 is treating you well as we move into the second quarter of it now. ^^, Still keep safe and COVID free in the new normal please.

Steamed egg custard, so smooth, it’s like silken tofu, beside my palate cleanser/shoga

I can’t say I haven’t been waiting for this, for Genki since I heard about their direct-to-table ‘Shinkansen Train’ inspired delivery system from Ms. Jess (Thankies for the inside scoop, Ms. Jess) in one of our foodievents with MSM (Launches of restos like Mesa and the return of Kenny Rogers. Whoa, those seem like a lifetime ago.) What I had in my mind was the conveyor belt like thingamajig and you just choose what you like to eat off of that.

Then our foodie friend, my FB chat pal since the pandemic started, eager beaver Mr. Dan sent me a heads up of their opening.

We were off as soon as we had an opening (From taumbahay moves. *tahaha)

Once we were seated, we were orientated on how to order … QR codes and such. Not to worry if you’re like me who’s still using a dumbphone as they provide a tablet just for us and it’s seamless addutucatu-ing from here on out at this Japanese resto. From the photos of the dishes complete with prices, just click on what you want, confirm your order, and just wait for the train. (Cue the old song by Flash and the Pan.)

We mixed ourselves some green tea (Matcha powder is provided and all tables have a tap providing hot drinking water.) and watched as other “tray-ns” went by with orders for other tables while we waited for our first batch of Genki sushis. Yep, the train doesn’t stop at your table if their precious cargo isn’t yours. Takaw tingin mode, going ‘Oh, I want that one too’ as the wagons zoom (Not bullet train speed =)) ) by.

Come to think of it, this Kousoku express delivery system is a great selling tactic. I found myself wanting to order this and that, just to see the train come to us again. =)

We picked and chose gunkans, makimonos, nigiris, the lesser known ones and found gems in the likes of seared premium Japanese scallop with pollock roe nigiri (<3 ❤ <3), seared grilled river eel nigiri (Caught my brother’s tastebuds). Race took a liking to the more substantial roll, the fried salmon cheese roll, all bulky and dense with its tempura outer layer.

Not every train delivery is packed full of “passengers”/four dishes. There were a few times in our batches of orders where just one or two arrived before the others … which I loved even more because it meant we’ll see the train stop at our table station again. =D (*public service announcement chime. This stop is the X table. X table. The doors are on your right.)

Baguio Genki Sushi 2022 cheesecake ice cream and green tea ice cream
We scream for ice cream … At Genki Sushi, it’s cheesecake ice cream and of course, a green tea flavored one. ^^,

As deliciously enjoyable as the selections were, we were mindful how easy it was to rake up a bill. I found myself checking the total on the tablet from time to time … Just to make sure we don’t go over and end up washing dishes to fully pay for this meal. *harhar

A truly memorable dining experience is what we had. X marks Genki Sushi for good food in Baguio. All aboard! (“,)

Food: 4 treasure chests
Service: 4 treasure chests
Ambiance: 4 treasure chests A wide and simple dining area. The star is in the section dividers, working its caboose off. =]
Price: 2 treasure chests We pay for Genki’s electric bill and then some. *heehaha

  4. Rick says :

    Genki Sushi is all the way in town but you look like you had a lot of fun in the video I think it will be worth the trip.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello again, Rick! Ohh, sounds like you’re going to come from a long way to get to Genki kaiten sushi resto. I guess if you bunch up it up with errands that you can only do in town and eat lunch here, it would be even more worth your while.

      I hope you have a great time at this restaurant whenever it is you come visiting. Thanks so much for dropping by this food blog and stay safe! (“,)

  5. Steph says :

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Steph! Et voila, Genki Sushi miniature train delivery system. Have a great time dining at Genki. Thank you for dropping by Find Good Baguio Foods! Keep safe! (“,)

  6. Ben says :

    Do you have Genki Sushi menu?

    • XiNE says :

      Hello, Ben! Apologies but I didn’t take photos of the tablet menu. I did look in the Genki Sushi site for their menu before we went to eat there, https://genkisushi.com.ph/collections and it helped me get a ballpark figure of what we would spend. I hope this helps.

      Thank you for visiting this Baguio food blog! Stay safe! (“,)

  7. Alysa says :

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Alysa! Thank you for the warm welcome back. *hihi Dining at Genki Sushi did psych me up, I was so amused, I got to write a post the next day.

      I hope you have a fun time with your foodie loved ones whenever it is you choose to dine at this interesting resto.

      I really appreciate your support by reading and commenting on the features here, thank you! Stay safe! (“,)

  8. Marc says :

    Dining at Genki is quite pricey compared to the conveyor kinds of restaurants in Japan.
    You are right in saying youre paying for their electricity and more.

    • XiNE says :

      Hello there, Marc! I expected that so I checked out their menu online to at least get a ballpark of the total damage to my pocket Genki Sushi would do. *hee It is a bit sad that regular stuff in certain countries get a huge percentaged tacked on to it once it’s brought here. Oh, well.

      Thank you for dropping by this Baguio food blog! Stay safe! (“,)
