Sushi Station's Tempura Shrimp Roll: Inaccurately named, but tasty.

First Taste, as the name implies, is not a full-blown review, but instead a peek inside restaurants that have just opened, sampling a few items, and satisfying curiosities (yours and ours).

Tatum Roll, in its natural habitat, gliding past on the conveyor belt.
For being in the middle of a desert, Phoenix sure does have a fascination with sushi. It seems like there's always another sushi joint opening everywhere you look. One of the more novel forms of sushi restaurant is the kaitenzushi, or conveyor belt sushi restaurant. At a kaitenzushi, instead of ordering, you select the sushi you want from a moving belt that wraps all the way around the sushi bar. These are the Chipotle of sushi restaurants: They're quick, very casual, and quite reasonably priced.

For a few years, there have been just two kaitenzushi in town: Sushi Eye in Motion in Chandler, and TeHaru on the very south edge of Tempe. If you live on the north side of town, it's a long hike to either one. Now, North Phoenix residents have a more convenient option. Sushi Station is a brand-spanking-new kaitenzushi, tucked away across the street from Desert Ridge Marketplace, just a couple of doors down from Pita Jungle.
