One of my favourite meals consists of a good cup of green tea, a dish of natto maki and seaweed.
Normally I am too busy to look up from my chop sticks, but this I did. Wow talk about overkill. Above the little dishes of sushi on the revolving track was a massive hood. You’d expect something like this in a steak place or at least somewhere where a lot of grilling, frying, or smoke was involved. But no, with raw food on the menu and the odd tempura fry up, this massive kid was hanging in the air! I’m glad I don’t need this in my kitchen!
The Massive Sushi Hood
About susan sheldon nolen
It’s rare to catch me without coffee, a form of camera, or my beloved wire fox terriers. I love the history, the art, and it’s a massive part of my life, as I either paint, write, or get interrupted by my dogs, reminding me of the real world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.

Over here, those hoods are usually required by code for restaurants, even if the place doesn’t need one. It’s ridiculous.
I agree Andra, I couldn’t find a reason for a hood that size! I mean sushi is raw! 😉
What? You mean it’s weird I have one of those in my kitchen? 😉
I’m not a fan of seaweed, but I’ll agree with you on a good cup of green tea. 🙂
lol. I so want to see you kitchen now! 😉 The seaweed grows on you! So does the natto! 😉
Sorry to disappoint. My kitchen is not nearly as exciting as that. My tiny stove vent has to shoulder all of the work. 🙂
It looks like its own piece of sculptural art! I agree with Andra, though, health dept rules can make restaurants do what we think are crazy things but what, if not done, will give the food a “B” rating from that scary visit by the inspector. (Sound like I used to own a restaurant? Hmmmmm….”
Thanks for the post idea, Susan. I’m going to write one about my restaurant days and link back to your post. Hopefully, in the next few days…
Oh I can’t wait! I would love to read about your restaurant days! Don’t leave me sitting here hungry!
It does sound like you used to own a restaurant! Do tell! and yes, that hood looks like sculptural art!
It does seem to be a little… excessive, Susan! 😉
Hi Tom, the hood just blew me away! I don’t think the photo really captured it’s true size! Just so glad I don’t have to ever clean it!
