A piece of food soars through the air, landing squarely in the open mouth of a patron. The other 19 guests at the table cheer. Then an egg pops up high above their heads. During its descent, a man standing before the seated crowd pulls open his breast pocket, and the egg lands snugly inside. Without pause, the chef continues chopping, flipping, and grilling in swashbuckling style.
This show repeats at Yokohama Japanese Steakhouse’s five large hibachi tables—each crowned with an enormous grill—every day of the week. The restaurant also serves up less theatrical but no less authentic teriyaki, tempura, udon, and wok-stirred fare, as well as
traditional and contemporary sushi rolls. In the dining room, the gurgling of water in an indoor pond mingles with the murmur of Sirius satellite radio and the purring of stomachs curled up for postprandial naps.
The small College Hill takeout restaurant is an offshoot of Haruki East, a popular Japanese eatery in Providence. Haruki Express, a 2008 Best of Rhode Island Editors' Pick in Rhode Island Monthly, serves fresh made-to-order meals that are an alternative to the fast food of yesteryear. Scanning the extensive menu, maki lovers can choose the fresh spicy tekka ($5.50) or the cooked salmon skin ($3.95), and meat-eating tax attorneys can try out the beef gyu don ($5.95), thinly sliced beef and onion sautéed with soy sauce and served over rice. This deal is not good for delivery, but it can be used to taunt illusionist David Blaine with delicious sushi via remote-controlled helicopter as he dangles hungrily in a Plexiglas cube.
