Based on what I had read before visiting Teppan Edo, your chef can make or break this experience. And our chef definitely made the experience of this restaurant. That and the Yum-Yum sauce, ha! Our chef was funny, personable, and did a great job portioning out the meal without onions for B.
To give a little background, Teppan Edo is a hibachi grill-style restaurant in the Japan pavilion of Epcot. Situated upstairs from the enormous Japan store, Mitsukoshi, Teppan Edo features both a section serving sushi, and then another section for the hibachi grills. Like most restaurants of this kind, unless you have a party of eight or more, you will most likely be seated with another family. The kids typically receive soup and a smaller meat serving (choice of chicken, steak, or shrimp). This was by far, J’s favorite meal of the trip. He was giggling the whole time at the chef’s jokes, and ate up everything on his plate!
Adults receive salad, and a large selection of meat offerings (I picked scallops, B picked shrimp and steak). You also receive rice and then vegetables and noodles with the meal.
Afterwards we did some shopping:
And the boys picked out two new stuffed animals that are so Kawaii:
Totoro and Ei! The boys were very excited! The Japan pavilion is one of our very favorites in Epcot, we are looking forward to the new restaurant opening this year!
