Toshiba and Intel recently held an event with a difference at a specially designed Pop-Up venue in Surry Hills, where sushi delivery was taken to new heights with the Seriously Japanese Pop Up Zushi Roller Coaster. Being greeted by two geisha lookalikes was a fun way to be shown to our seats, which were milk crates with planks on top.
Orders were placed for the crafted sushi via the latest Toshiba tablets and 2-in-1 devices powered by Intel Inside. The bespoke sushi, designed by artisan chefs, was delivered to the table after a mind-blowing, break-neck journey via the exclusively created sushi roller coaster.
Guests waiting to enter the pop up venue were lined up almost the full length of the inner city laneway. Walking past the crowd as we departed, we were asked by those eagerly waiting, if it was worth the wait. Yes, we answered, it’s definitely worth staying in line to see such an imaginative and clever sushi delivery system, more impressive than the usual sushi train. The fact the sushi tasted so good was a bonus.
