Kura Revolving Sushi Bar is a futuristic fast-food Japanese spot serving dishes via conveyor belt just off Rittenhouse Square. The two-level, Tetris-themed chain restaurant circulates dishes like sushi rolls, nigiri, and dumplings for customers to grab directly from their table, or you can order from the full menu via a tableside tablet. The beep-bop-boop-bop doesn’t end there–a robot playing rock and roll delivers the drinks, while a prize machine shoots out rewards like temporary tattoos for every 15 plates you eat. Yes, it’s ridiculous, but it’s also pretty fun, and the food is solid enough for a quick and casual meal. You can’t go wrong with the seared salmon with Japanese mayo or hamachi tataki with ponzu oil, but steer clear of the bland and too-chewy tonkotsu ramen.
