Sitting down at your table, you find an LCD touch panel instead of a menu. You choose from a range of designs (sashimi, new-style sashimi, nigiri, maki roll, california hand-roll, etc) and then from a list of available ingredients (which may include unusual items not normally found in sushi). The monitor shows you a graphic of what your design would look like.

Once your design is complete, hit the 'order' button and minutes later the food arrives at the table.

To speed things up, you can also browse designs that other people have created. There would also be a top-ten most popular list, with a discount reward for the people creating the most popular designs.

I'll have an inside-out-maki roll with chorizo, smoked duck, jalapeno pepper and yuzu tobiko please...

       Putting aside the computer element of this, sushi restaurants do operate a 'choose your own sushi' system, at least the ones that I've been in do. Normally the chef/s make up the sushi in front of the customers rather than in a seperate kitchen like a western restaurant so you just need to signal the chef and tell him what you want and he'll make it up for you.

And that will speed things up will it?

       Yum yum!   

       I've often thought that Marmite might go well with sushi, but i've never tried it....

       I was thinking more along the lines of one of those glue-together doll houses.

       I've met chefs who declined to fill such requests, because they knew that a given combination of fish was not likely to appeal to the tongue.   

       But I've learned to be careful about joking in earshot of your chef - although that's how I learned about the yummy goodness of deep-fried octopus.
