Surf-and-turf platters satisfyingly combine the flavors of land and sea, just as air-and-scare meals combine the flavors of poultry and rubber snakes. Sink teeth into a meal that spans the animal kingdom with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of teppanyaki-style steaks and seafood at Kobe Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar.
At Kobe Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar, patrons can enjoy the entertainment and elegant flavors of teppanyaki-style dining in front of limber hibachi artists. The teppanyaki experience invites bold guests to take seats around a grill and watch Kobe’s master chefs juggle flames, knives, vegetables, seafood, meats, and appetites as they whip up meals before diners’ growling stomachs and flickering eyes. The menu tantalizes tongues with esculent combos of coldwater lobster tail and steak ($44.95), or teriyaki chicken and shrimp ($28.95). Sushi selections, including an appetizer of Hawaiian maguro sashimi ($12), bait big appetites or regular-size manatees, and rice, tea, and a roiling pot of shabu-shabu soup accent each teppanyaki-style meal.
Antique Japanese artifacts attempt to upstage Kobe’s 35-year history, counting among their venerable ranks a 300-year-old fisherman’s kimono, emperor dolls, and a tank containing the last living ninja.
