Sounds like the plot of Tampopo.

Kappa is the best budget sushi chain by far. Not sure what trade secrets there are to steal for cheap sushi. Perhaps procurement?

Do they use horseradish instead of genuine wasabi?

/don't all sushi restaurants do that?

Some things you don't want to be cheap about.

In America I'd be mighty concerned about $1.00  (71¢ at the current dogshiat exchange rate 👍) sushi, but in Japan it's delicious and perfectly safe.

"Budget sushi" sounds like a strong synonym for "gastrointestinal distress" or "parasitic infection".

Just ate at the restaurant in question today. Aside from burning diarrhea and sudden blindness in my left eye, I feel fine.

$29 for four people with dessert. Worth it.

There was a local place that used to have all-you-can-eat sushi before COVID, and that deal has not come back since they opened back up for in-person dining.  It effectively costs twice as much for me to eat there now.

I never tasted real wasabi. :/

They also all give people chopsticks, to eat their finger food.

I think it's only in Chiba, but Choushimaru is the best budget chain I've been to.

Chiba, Tokyo, and a few stores in each Saitama and Kanagawa, apparently.

I've only had real fresh grated wasabi once, but it was worth going out of my way to get. A much more subtle and complex flavor profile than ground-up horseradish with green food coloring.
