Food Hussy Review: Hibachi Grill & Buffet, Withamsville/Eastgate

I love a Hibachi Grill - truly one of my favorite things to do for dinner - and I was craving one so we drove over to Eastgate where we'd seen the sign before. 

He was pretty sure it wasn't like Benihana where you sit at the table but we decided it was worth a shot. And - he was correct - it's really a Chinese buffet that happens to have a hibachi grill at the back.

The toppings bar was fine - there were a lot of vegetable and rice choices as well as shrimp and scallops.

I also added steak - it's a thin, cheap cut of course - but it was not overcooked - which I was happy about.

I had rice noodles, scallops, pineapple, broccoli and mushrooms along with teriyaki sauce and the ever present fried egg.

 It was definitely the popular selection of the night. They were quite busy juggling multiple people's orders at a time.

My steak looked pretty great - and I had a side of yum yum sauce - or whatever their equivalent was. Larry got a piece but didn't want to eat it - he said he took a bite and didn't like it. I thought it was really good - tender & juicy - cooked medium rare just how I like and I ate all of it. (foreshadowing looms)

My veggies and noodles were cooked fine - but not much to screw up here. Nothing was anything to write home about. It all seemed good at the time...

Since we did the Hibachi portion we didn't really go to the Chinese buffet - although I did grab a plate of the crab casserole that they have - I think this is what I need to find a recipe for. Anybody have one? I'm obsessed with this stuff! Between this and the sugar donuts - I'm a happy girl!

Why Should You Go? Well - note the foreshadowing. One of us was PAINFULLY ill for 2 days. We won't be back.

  1. Hibachi is now The King. We went there a couple months ago, the food was barely warm and just gross.
