I met up with a good friend of mine a few nights ago for my Dine Out #5 (last one!) at Yokohama Teppanyaki in Steveston. Their menu was $28, and included both steak and seafood. Pretty good deal, eh? 😛
For my appetizer, I chose the miso soup with the “Yokohama Salad”. The miso soup came in a small bowl and had mushrooms in it — this was different! The salad on the other hand… it was the saddest salad I have ever seen… literally just a bunch of greens on a plate with some salad sauce. Rabbit food!
For my entree, I chose the Filet Mignon & Lobster package, which included Filet Mignon, lobster tail, mixed vegetables, tender bean sprouts, and fried rice. Since this was a teppanyaki restaurant, each dish is cooked right in front of you and served one by one.
My personal favourite was the Filet Mignon. The meat was wonderfully juicy and flavourful. You can see my friend’s chopsticks sneaking in trying to steal one of fat pieces… evil!
Last but not least, there was ice cream to top everything off 🙂 My friend chose green tea on the left, and I had the mango. Our server forgot my spoon and while she disappeared to get it, I was left sitting there… slowly watching my ice cream melt… 😥
All in all, a great experience! The only complaints I have are 1) the very embarassingly sad salad and 2) service wasn’t quite up to par, most likely due to the fact that there was only one server for the entire restaurant. Otherwise, food was deliciously nommy and came in good portions — I was stuffed afterwards!
If you’re ever in the Steveston neighbourhood, check this place out! Teppanyaki is always a cool experience when watching the chef prepares everything right in front of you 🙂
