Have you ever eaten sushi delivered via conveyor belt? Now you can without having to book a flight to Tokyo thanks to Arawan Thai Sushi, located in Cold Spring.
The Northern Kentucky restaurant known for its Thai and East Asian cuisine re-opened July 14 following a temporary dining room closure that began early May.
After a mysterious Facebook post saying “We have something very exciting in the works for our dining room and can’t wait to reveal to you all very soon,” the restaurant closed its dining space to shift solely to takeout orders. It was later revealed they installed the conveyor belt that will allow diners to select sushi and other dishes at their leisure as they passed by.
Arawan Thai Sushi recently celebrated its second anniversary serving the community and, along with the conveyor belt, has also added what they call “SuShef,” a robotic sushi-maker that spreads rice onto seaweed sheets before the sushi chef fills it with the proteins and vegetables, then “SuShef” wraps it up. This is meant to aid the kitchen staff to produce more sushi in less time to keep the conveyor belt nicely stocked.
This restaurant is the first in the area to offer conveyor belt-delivered food.
Arawan Thai Sushi is located at 56 Martha Layne Collins Blvd., Cold Spring, KY. More info: arawanthaisushi.com.
