I’ll admit it right off the bat: I’ve been kinda lost these past years, since New No Da Ji closed in Lower Charles Village. It was my go-to sushi buffet when I was really hungry, when I was pretty much in my pajamas on a Sunday morning or it was break the fast time ending Yom Kippur.
Nothing has replaced it, but the Kyodai Rotating Sushi Bar in Towson fills in some of the gap. It’s quick, it’s cheap — or can be — and it’s decent. Rotating plates of different types of sushi, ranging from $2.95 a dish to $5.95 a dish come around on a conveyor belt. The different colored dishes, with their different levels of upscale ingredients, clue you in to which costs what.
You can get a Japanese beer there and be in and out in a hurry. What you grab to eat is your budget calculation. Each plate holds 4 bite-sized pieces and some are garnished with various fish roe. At your place setting is the wasabi and pickled ginger, all you can eat.
Unlike the Johns Hopkins University area that New No Da Ji was in, I don’t feel as able to roll in wearing pajamas and bedhead in the business/government seat of Baltimore County.
