Kids th­ese days. They re­ally have it so good. All the con­ve­niences, all the gad­gets, all the con­nec­tiv­ity, all the gourmet choices avail­able to them, any­time and any­where. Case in point: Japanese food. When I was a child, my gen­er­a­tion ba­si­cally had two choices for tem­pura and all other de­lights Japanese. Oh, let me be clear, I’m not com­plain­ing, be­cause Kim­pura and Ka­mameshi House were re­ally quite special and un­for­get­table, and to­day, decades later, they’re still around and still serv­ing ex­cel­lent dishes. But I re­call that trips to th­ese restau­rants back then were ma­jor ex­cur­sions, never ca­sual de­ci­sions. And as such, they were al­ways special oc­ca­sions. Th­ese days? Japanese dishes --- from ra­men to sushi and ev­ery­thing in be­tween --- can be found in ev­ery sin­gle mall and food court in the Philip­pines. So the de­ci­sion point for fam­i­lies now is not whether or not to dine on Japanese food, but the ques­tion is: where? More and more, the an­swer will come not from the par­ents, but from the dis­crim­i­nat­ing palates of their chil­dren. And when it comes to Japanese? The kids’ clamor, more of­ten than not, is for Genki Sushi.

It’s a su­per fun restau­rant con­cept that could only have come from Ja­pan; ul­tra-high tech pre­sen­ta­tion meets clas­sic cook­ing tech­niques. The most strik­ing as­pect of Genki Sushi is the or­der­ing/ serv­ing sys­tem. Menu se­lec­tion is made via
