Giant Conveyor Belt Sushi Spot Rolls Into Kearny Mesa

Mikami opens on Clairemont Mesa Boulevard

Newly opened in the same Clairemont Mesa Boulevard mall as Zen Curry and Lolita’s Mexican Food, Mikami spans a whopping 6,000-square-feet of restaurant and bar space with a large glassed-in kitchen dedicated to kaiten-zushi, a convenient and affordable Japanese style of dining that sends plates of sushi on a circuitous conveyor belt route, winding past customers seated in each booth. Kaiten-zushi is also the specialty of the always-busy Kura Revolving Sushi, which has been open on Convoy Street since 2015.

Currently open for lunch and dinner, Mikami prices all of its kaiten-zushi at $2.80 per plate. Guests can pull plates off the conveyor belt or order directly from a tablet installed at each table. The Kearny Mesa restaurant also features a separate bar and dining area pouring beer, wine, sake, and plum wine; it will eventually offer an eclectic menu that ranges from Cajun seafood buckets to yakitori, fried rice, sushi rolls, and salt and pepper chicken wings.
