Want a bit more seafood to go with your steak and shrimp? Try the Ahi Poke ($10.95). This classic Hawaii dish is made with fresh island tuna marinated in sesame seed oil and shoyu along with onions and a variety of spices.
Now with three locations, Tanaka of Tokyo has been serving locals and visitors quality teppanyaki for more than 40 years. The restaurant’s chefs offer more than just great food, but also a show. “The performance cooking done by our chefs tableside, and efficient and friendly service by our staff, makes a fun dining experience,” says vice-president Hiroshi Lamansky.
FRIED RICE WITH FLAIR
One of the most popular items at Tanaka of Tokyo is its interpretation a local favorite: Fried Rice ($4.75). Rice, egg and vegetables are teppan grilled at your table. “Our fried rice is really popular, and it’s fun to watch the chefs prepare it,” says Bo Tanaka, corporate general manager. “That’s where a lot of them show their creativity. They juggle things and create tricks with eggs.”
