I have to tell you a secret. Shhh…come closer. Are you ready for this? I have never been to one of those habachi places where they entertain you while they cook.
But to say that I don’t know what they are or even seen them is a lie. You see, I can see them doing those little tricks like flickering the light as they light up your onion rings on fire creating a sort of food volcano, or when they flip a shrimp and somehow they find it behind your ear? Haha. It’s fun to watch from outside the restaurant when one is shopping in Japantown, but up until this year, I have never sat inside one of those types of restaurant.
Then a coworker/friend had her birthday and invited me along. Oh, really? Where are we going? So excited… And we went to Kobe Japan in Pleasant Hill. Oh, you thought I went to the real Kobe, Japan? I would actually be more excited, but this was really fun too.
Birthday girl really enjoyed herself. The Chef made her a heart out of the fried rice. How cute, right?!?
And the food was good, service friendly, and yes, we were all entertained.
I wouldn’t do this for my birthday, but this was really fun experience. Here’s a picture of my plate of food.
