When a chef cooks in front of you, you can be sure he doesn't burn your food, spit in it, or waste hours using it to construct a miniature replica of the Ford factory constructing miniature Model Ts. Witness culinary creation firsthand with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese hibachi-style cooking at Sushi Tango on Hennepin Avenue. Hibachi is available for dinner only starting at 5 p.m. daily; this Groupon is not valid toward sushi.
Japanese hibachi-style cooking, or teppanyaki, is a culinary experience wherein chefs cook on gas-heated hotplates in front of diners. After it migrated to a bigger spot in Calhoun Square, Sushi Tango added a set of specialty hibachi tables for close-up savory showmanship. Prep your palate with edamame ($4.95) or pork gyoza (dumplings, $5) before diving into the briny depths of seafood hibachi dinners such as shrimp ($22), calamari ($18), or salmon steak teriyaki ($22). As Sushi Tango's friendly chefs chop and stir together a hibachi full of meat such as your choice of white or dark chicken ($17) or filet mignon ($24), they'll keep things interesting with jokes, culinary sleight of hand, and lightning-quick knife-fu. All Sushi Tango's hibachi dinners are served with green tea, soup, salad, shrimp appetizers, vegetables, and fried or steamed rice. Special combinations such as musta sefu (steak and shrimp, $28) and surf and turf (filet mignon and lobster tail, $36) are also available on the hibachi menu.
Now that Chili's has gotten rid of its gladiator pit, many Americans are not getting their daily recommended dosage of spectacle when eating out. Boost your intake of acrobatically presented cuisine with today's Groupon to Sushi Tango.
Reservations are required and must be made for two or more people.
- We ate at the Hibachi tables last night and had a great meal, but the best was the Calamari. The entire table agreed that it was the best they have ever had. – Tonka Scott, Urbanspoon
