Hibachi Dinner More than Big Flame
r those that’s been treated to a good Japanese restaurant; probably know about the entertainment your meal comes with. The big flame is always an eye-catcher, along with the twirling of a knife or two. The chef always has some other little display under his sleeve that puts smiles on everyone’s faces sitting at the table. While the actions of watching your meal being prepared takes place, there is also some really good food that gets handed out to your plate for you to gobble down. If you haven’t tried a Japanese restaurant yet, you really must give this a try sometime.
You can’t go wrong with an hibachi dinner and this is the only way to eat a really good Asian meal (in my opinion). Don’t get me wrong, I like Chinese food a bit too. The rice you get at a Chinese restaurant is pretty plain. Most serve steamed rice, but it’s getting more common to see fried rice at Chinese restaurants. I would compare the rice at a Chinese restaurant, to the french fries with a fast food meal at a hamburger place in the United States. The fries are good with the meal, but it’s really the burger that’s the main thing. I like having the fries there and I am the same way with the rice; which gets served with your Chinese meals.
Now the rice that gets prepared by a hibachi chef comes to life and this is just as good as your main menu selection. I think most people choose a steak or chicken to order with their hibachi dinners. The main dish is good too and the rice these hibachi chefs prepare with it, is just as good too. Later that night or the next day, it will be the rice that I crave more than anything from the hibachi dinner I just ate. I will usually go with the steak or filet mignon. Seafood lovers might try something from the ocean for the hibachi chef to stir around on his hot-top stove. Regardless if you choose the steak, filet Mignon, chicken, or even a nice lobster or shrimp to nibble on, you’re going to get the mixed vegetables, probably a soup containing a mushroom or two, and that awesome Japanese fried rice!
Now the hibachi dinner mostly means that a certified chef skilled in the art of Japanese cooking, will come to your table and prepare your meal for everyone at the table to see. It’s a treat for everyone to watch and the kids like this part too. The younger folks may not appreciate the food as much as the adults, but you can rest assure the entertainment will be 2nd to none. The food from hibachi dinners may be a bit of an acquired taste. I know the first time I tried eating a hibachi dinner, I thought it was just descent. The more times I went, the more I liked it and the more new places I wanted to try.
The bad news is the price tag. It’s not too cheap to eat this great food and not idea for the average family to go out and eat nightly or even once a week. Maybe your family can afford to eat this way once a month and that’s certainly worth saving up for, if you can find it in the monthly budget for a hibachi dinner monthly. Avoid eating the actual dinner hours or in the evenings after 3 or 4 pm. Try to locate a Japanese restaurant close to your area; that will serve lunches around the noon hour. Eating at these hours can save you and the family a few dollars and you still get a lot of food and will probably need a take out plate, to take your leftovers home. This food warms up real good in the microwave and it may even be a little better; than eating it at the restaurant. Don’t forget to get the orange Japanese restaurant sauce with your meal.
If you don’t like Chinese food, there is still hope you will like the Japanese version. This food is similar to the menu items you can get from the Chinese restaurants. However, it’s much different in the way it is prepared and in the way it tastes. I could understand someone not liking Japanese or Chinese food. I have yet to meet someone that loves Chinese food, but hates the Japanese food. If you do like Chinese restaurants, but haven’t tried one of the great-tasting hibachi dinners from a Japanese restaurant. You will have to start making plans now to eat at one in the near future. An evening meal may cost around $18 to $30; while the lunch time specials at Japanese restaurants will usually run about $9 to $15 in most cases. Give the lunch hours a try for the best prices and be sure you choose the hibachi dinner with a side of Yum Yum Sauces. The orange sauce is called yumyum sauce or Yum Yum Sauce and it is really good with the meal. Just eating the fried rice with Yum Yum sauce is a good meal!
