I'd rather have a well-cooked piece of steak, too, but hibachi-grill places are a lot of fun and I enjoy the food. I just know that it's going to be cut up, maybe butterflied, and probably loaded with sauce and other seasonings. Just how it is.

Different food = different culture. It's OK. It's kind of nice that things from different places in the world are, you know, a little different.
I agree, and different is great. It was my first time @ a Japanees steakhouse and my last time ordering a "steak". I felt a little misled by the name.

Right with you Brother, I thought it would be a crime to do that to Kobe. Thats why we have Sirloin!

I agree with all the crazy toppings, but last time I was on a trip for work, I thought, eh, why not, and got a piece of pepperjack tossed on top. Now, it didn't come even close to draping the entire thing so I had several bites without cheese, and some with, but I did enjoy it.

I always get the Filet and Chicken when we go to Japanese Steak House. I order it medium and I love the little cubes. But they're never over cooked or over seasoned. Must just be the one we go to? There is a little soy sauce but you don't really taste it. Just soft little cubes of beef greatness. Now the chicken, that's usually dry.

Edit: with that said, my parents once forced me to go with them to Medieval Times during a childhood trip to LA. (Medieval Times is a joust/"royal feast" type event held nightly.) Even at age 12, I thought it was complete and utter crap.
I'd forgotten about them. Curse you for the reminder! What a waste of time and money!

Gotta agree with the_bird here. That's just how they do it. I don't like my steak like that either, I'd rather save the premium steak for a steakhouse that dry-ages their own (nomnom). I always associate Japan with seafood anyways so shrimp it is for me.

Between the sushi/soups/tempura/appetizers I rarely make it to the entree section of most Japanese menus.

Imagine Medieval Times with allergies to animals. Mmmmm, eating in a barn; yummy.

So, you went to a teppanyaki/sushi bar and decided to order from the teppanyaki menu the Kobe steak. And the chef then proceeded to prepare for you, wait for it,

Teppenyaki!


Oh. Yes. I do so hate it when I goto restaurants and they prepare exactly what I ordered.

FTR tho', I do agree that most Teppanyaki joints do go a bit heavy on the Soy Sauce and that Kobe shouldn't need it at all. Maybe try a few more place with the Hibachi and order to taste.

No if the menu would have said that I would have asked if that entails ruining the most noble of steaks. The menu said " Kobe Beef Ribeye" cooked to order.

Also, sorry to break it to you but I really highly doubt that it was true kobe ribeye for only $30.

Meh. I have had the Kobe beef before from a few different classier Japan style joints. Not impressed. I'd be willing to bet that in Japan it is amazing but once it has been shipped here it isn't much different than a really good, fresh cut of marbled beef.

No matter. You just have to understand that at a Hibachi Teppanyaki joint, that is how they do it. Sauced up and chopped into chopstickable bits.

Yeah. There is this too.

I had a Kobe burger that was $30 without the sides.

Tasted like chopped chuck. Prolly was too.
