Before hibachi restaurants, the only way one could witness food preparation was to watch a cooking show or secretly install a spy camera in the chef's hat. Get closer to the action with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of steak, sushi, and seafood during dinner at Kobe House Japanese Steak & Seafood in Dolphin Mall.
The hibachi and sushi eats at Kobe House Japanese Steak & Seafood are prepared by a dexterous team of chefs who execute a public display of culinary acrobatics as they whip up each dish. Peruse an expansive offering of sashimi and nigiri, or put sushi slices under wraps with a Kobe house roll, home to salmon, cream cheese, cucumber, tuna, and spicy mayo ($15.95). Hibachi fare is cooked on a tabletop grill and served with soup, salad and steamed rice. Savory entrees including teriyaki tuna ($21.95) as well as special combinations such as filet mignon, shrimp, and scallops ($35.95) are all prepared before diners' eyes, then launched into open mouths from a catapult in the kitchen.
Kobe House Japanese Steak & Seafood
As they bustle past the clothing stores and restaurants inside Dolphin Mall, shoppers can't help but pause to peer in through the glass windows of Kobe House Japanese Steak & Seafood. Inside lies a world of light and color, where flames roar up from tableside teppan grills, vivid japanese murals sweep across the walls, and gold Japanese characters glimmer from dark wood pillars. Chefs stand before the grills, tossing their spatulas spiritedly in the air as they whip up seafood, free-range chicken, and steaks from genuine Wagyu Kobe beef. For added fanfare, the cooks stack slices of onion into mountains and arrange rice into playful hearts amid cheers and laughter from the audience. Behind the sushi bar, sushi chefs roll up fresh lobster, shrimp, and crab, infusing traditional Japanese recipes with contemporary twists.
