What is the Attraction of Konsushi?

The Casual Critic has had the opportunity, so to speak, to have lunch at this extremely popular sushi restaurant located behind the Pemex gas station across from Sam’s Club on the Prolongacion de Montejo , thanks to invitations from extended family members who seem to enjoy it.
Do you enjoy hot, crowded, noisy, rushed-service sushi restaurants? Then this could be the place for you.
You can call him a snob, but the Critic cannot find anything remotely attractive about this sushi restaurant. The creamy dips and things give the Critic the willy-nillys (hygiene and temperature issues come to mind) and most of the rolls have artery clogging philadelphia cheese throughout.

On one occasion, the Critic had to visit the washroom and, in spite of Mini-Critic’s warnings against doing so, visited the men’s room. The accompanying photo can give potential diners of what they will find. The complete absence of any aesthetic considerations is astonishing. Note the professional electrical installation with several wires sticking out next to the tiny sink. The lack of any kind of toilet seat on the WC is another nod to third world expectations.

If this is what is visible to the public’s naked eye, what doesn’t happen in the kitchen?

But they are a very popular choice. Price seems to be the main attraction, along with the fact that they are feeding to their clientele what that clientele thinks is exotic Japanese food. On weekends and nights, the place is jumping.

The Critic gives it a solid 2 out of 5.
