Serving fish so fresh it’s still moving... on a conveyor belt!!... East Broadway's Sushi Ohana proves once and for all that food tastes better when you have to chase it down, as dozens of rolls cruise by your face on said belt that moves just fast enough to give your inner hunter-gatherer a thrill without requiring you to club your mate over the head.
The main attraction is the serpentine conveyor belt overlooked by a tank of very frightened-looking fish, which loops around the open kitchen/bar as Lucille Ball hilariously stuffs her face with spicy tuna rolls.
They're firing out all manner of gyoza, sashimi, and rolls like the Dinosaur (pictured way up top) w/ almonds, shrimp tempura, avocado, and a strong desire to eat Newman in a Jeep, this eel number, and the Volcano Roll w/ baked scallops.
There're also grilled plates like this massive yakisoba bowl, and beef & fish fired up on the hibachi.
Rolls are already remarkably inexpensive ($1.25-$3 a pop), but during the daily 11a-3p happy hour nothing's over $1.75, including desserts like mousse cake and this mango mochi ice cream, which's made by pounding mochi with a giant mallet -- the same method your great-great-great-great-great Grandpa Oog used to court his wife.
