Machino Sushi Shiki restaurant is part of the Hanamaru company which is a famous chain of sushi bars and restaurants. Machino Sushi Shiki is located in Paseo and is one of three Hanamaru sushi bars in Hokkaido. There are 2 options for your order, the set menu or the plate menu. The set menus include a lunch menu of 10 pieces of sushi with a mussel soup, and egg pudding (recommended), or the shrimp soba noodles set, or the mixed set of salmon eggs, soup, and sea urchin on rice.
The other option is to order individual plates. Each plate has 2 pieces of sushi per plate. The prices are much higher at around ￥350 per plate, up to ￥650 a plate. For those wishing to sample different kinds of sushi, the other Hanamaru kaiden (sushi train) restaurants are a cheaper option. Machino Sushi has a large drinks menu, including beer, cocktails, and sake. There is counter seating as well as table seating for up to groups of 8. This restaurant caters for tourists but as a note, taking photos of the sushi is no problem BUT the sushi chefs do not like having their photo taken. Apart from that, enjoy the fresh sushi at Machino Sushi Shiki Hanamaru!
