The Bellevue Sushi Land—excuse me, Marinepolis Sushi Land—was shut down yesterday pending investigation by the King County Department of Public Health. According to Eater Seattle, two incidences of salmonella were linked to the restaurant.
Tear. Am I the only one who will miss the Eastside's super-cheap, delightfully decrepit sushi place while it’s being poked and prodded by health inspectors? Whenever I eat there, I feel like I'm in a factory—but in a good way, like I'm a very meta robot reconstructing myself out of pieces of nigiri on the robot assembly line. Plus: They have free tea! What’s not to love? Here's to hoping for a quick re-open—salmonella be damned.
