Like famous rappers, hibachi chefs are charismatic, theatrical, and often get shrimp stuck in their flashy grills. Treat your taste buds to eye-inspiring edibles with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of Japanese cuisine at Meijin Japanese Steakhouse redeemable at the location in Westerville.
The expert teppanyaki chefs at Ichiban use their iron griddles as the primary tools in building a menu that sizzles with steaks, seafood, and noodle dishes, and a sushi bar that unfurls with makimono. Although the sushi wears its Japanese pride on its seaweed sleeve, both steakhouses also boast a streak of avant-garde international influence, with such offerings as the seared salmon roll––salmon skin and cucumber topped with seared salmon and salsa ($13). The Crazy roll's deliciousness makes diners believe that their tongues are flavor magnets with morsels of shrimp tempura, avocado, flying-fish roe, and spicy mayo ($7). Hibachi dinner entrees—such as the filet mignon and scallops ($22.95)—arrive with an entourage of sides that include two pieces of shrimp tempura, vegetables, and steamed rice (substitute fried rice for $1.65).
While guarding their eyebrows, guests take swigs from the Mount Midori for Two specialty cocktail that mixes fire with Malibu rum, triple sec, and pineapple juice ($9.95). To ensure a pleasant, lively environment, Japanese artifacts overlook Meijin, where visitors can admire the showmanship of flame-tossing hibachi chefs.
