Although I practically live for trying out new and exciting restaurants, it may not always be as convenient as we would like it to be! Working full time, setting aside 1-2 hours to workout, while having homework and dogs to take care of (along with laundry and all those fun errands) can be TIME CONSUMING & draining! I’m sure after a long day the last thing you want to do is travel far distances for a meal. I’ve been to many of our local Hibachi restaurants (there’s about four I believe), but no matter what I always resort to Kobu!
The view is absolutely stunning! It is located on the center of the lake and they have outdoor seating about a few feet away from the water. You can also choose to eat outside under a tent-like area, or inside at a table or the hibachi area. I love the variety of options available for seating. In the summer, the outdoor is always my go to of course!
A few of my girlfriends and I enjoyed a nice, long dinner here a few weeks ago lakeside. We took a few pictures as soon as we got there, while we waited for our other two friends to arrive.
We started off with a bottle of Pino Grigio and indulged in some spring rolls and edamame. (Yummmmmm… Love licking the salt off my lips after!)
And of course we couldn’t go to hibachi without doing some saki bombs! Have you ever done a saki bomb!? Basically it’s a Japanese beer filled in a mug halfway. Two chopsticks are placed on top of the glass and a shot of saki is balanced on the chopsticks. You them stomp your hands on the table in a fist like motion until the shot falls in the beer. Different, but interesting. LOL
Once our food arrived, it was all over from there! The fried rice is delicious, but light. The chicken is cooked perfectly and the steak is so tender and juicy. The vegetables have the perfect crisp to them. The ginger dipping sauce is my favorite. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture a picture of the sauce because I wiped it clean in .5 seconds. I’m sure you have had hibachi before, and if you haven’t then you NEED to! Like NOW!
I hope you enjoyed this post, and as always, I would love to hear your comments!
