Like romance novels, dumplings fit tempting tidbits into a small but steamy package. Passionately devour cuisine with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $14 worth of Japanese cuisine at Tokyo Japanese Restaurant in Conway.
Tokyo Japanese Restaurant's hibachi chefs exhibit a flair for culinary showmanship as they grill dishes to order for dining audiences. Starters such as the gyoza ($3.75 for six)—pan-fried dumplings made with chicken—silence hunger's rumblings as they leap from a soy-based dipping sauce into gulleted glory. Hibachi grills sizzle with hearty dinner-menu dishes, including a medley of shrimp, scallops, and calamari ($17.95) hand selected by culinary- school-alumni mermaids, or fried rice with chicken ($5.95). At lunchtime, tempura udon noodles ($7.95) shimmy to the table in a hot pot, accompanied by vegetables, two pieces of tempura shrimp, and two fish cakes. Fiery feasts finish on a cool note with Japanese ice cream ($3.95) in flavors such as green tea or ginger.
Tokyo Japanese Restaurant
Tokyo has more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other city in the world. It’s a difficult reputation to live up to, but Tokyo Japanese Restaurant attempts to uphold the traditions of this culinary heavyweight with its menu of authentic Japanese cuisine.
The three-course hibachi meal for two is perhaps the best display of the eatery’s extensive offerings with its shrimp appetizer, choice of soup or salad, and a triumvirate of sirloin steak, shrimp, and chicken. Tokyo Japanese Restaurant also boasts a large sushi and maki menu filled with common favorites, such as spicy salmon rolls, and more hard-to-come-by selections, such as quail egg and spicy crawfish.
