Oh baby. That amazing onion mushroom soup:
The Hibachi vegetables and chicken...
Their salad with ginger dressing.... and their fried rice... ah. Fugeddaboutit. It's amazing. I kind of messed around with some ingredients and figured out the recipe for their fried rice. I make it every now and then when I'm yearning for some Benihana goodness. Benihana is the only place whose shrimp I will eat. And that's saying something, because I really, really hate seafood. But the shrimp they grill... it just tastes kind of like chicken.
I don't even remember the last time I went there to eat. San Diego? Like, four years ago? Sad. And I had a cold, so I couldn't even taste the food. I soooo wish we had one of those here.
If you ever eat there, let me warn you - you will smell like Japanese food for the rest of the night. In fact, plan on washing every single thing you wore in there, plus take a good long shower when you get home. Or you will smell. It's a good smell when you're inside the restaurant, but if you try to go to a movie or a show afterwards, everyone around you will hate your guts.
