Teppan Edo Lunch

 

May 2015 Trip Review

[IMG]

Not long after checking in at the desk which is shared with the other Japanese restaurant, Tokyo Dining, we were seated at one of their tables for 8.

Since there were just 4 of us, we were joined at this table by another family of 3 (so we had one empty seat between us).

I was pretty confident that we were about to have a great lunch here, since I had dined at Teppan Edo during two of my last three trips to Disney World and each time it was among my trip favorites.

And one of my favorite things about Teppan Edo is that you are offered a small portion of grilled mushrooms to go along with your chosen entree…

However, none of my kids like mushrooms so I was looking forward to having their share too. ;)

But let’s start from the beginning and take a look at the Teppan Edo menu…

Before choosing our entrees, the girls and I first ordered a specialty cocktail…

[IMG]

I had my usual sweet, fruity cocktail that I always get here…

[IMG]

Tokyo Sunset – Coconut rum, creme de banana, peach schnapps and pineapple juice – $9.50

This was again very good and as usual I rated it a 5. However, an interesting note is that this drink cost me only $9.00 when I last had it in October 2014.

Allison chose the Yokahama Sunrise with Coconut rum, white rum, orange juice, lime juice and grenadine. She rated this a 4. And Emily had the Yuzu Petal with Japanese Yuzu citrus juice, Sochu, orange curacao, cranberry and apple juice. She wasn’t crazy about this and only gave it a 3.

Since we had just had our stuffed pretzel appetizers, we went straight to ordering our entrees and then our chef arrived and the show began.

[IMG]

He began by grilling the vegetables, and I was surprised to see him throw a big pile of cabbage and carrots onto the grill… :eek:

[IMG]

And the worst part…no mushrooms!! :sad2:

I was still hoping that the mushrooms would be a late addition to the grill though, so I turned my attention to the building of the onion volcano…

[IMG]

But then when the vegetables were all cooked and sliced and our chef piled on the noodles…

[IMG]

…I resigned myself to having a mushroom-less lunch. :sad1:

So what did we have besides noodles, onions, zucchini, cabbage, and carrots?

Emily and Andrew both got the Steak & Chicken Breast combo…

[IMG]

While Allison and I both ordered the Steak & Shrimp combo…

[IMG]

The steak is very good, but I love the grilled shrimp…

[IMG]

Our entrees were also served with rice and three dipping sauces…

[IMG]

I really like their Sukiyaki Beef Rice…

[IMG]

And the three sauces are all very good too…

[IMG]

A white, creamy seafood sauce (my favorite), Mustard sauce, and Ginger sauce
So we unanimously rated our entrees a 4, or Good. Normally I would have rated Teppan Edo’s Steak & Shrimp entree a 5, but it was demoted to only a 4 this time due to the mushrooms being replaced by cabbage and carrots. To me the cabbage seemed like just cheap filler, one which I did not really enjoy. :(

After deciding to wait and get something for dessert elsewhere in World Showcase, I asked for the check. Though Teppan Edo does not accept Tables in Wonderland, they do give Annual Passholders a 10% discount on food and non-alcoholic beverages, but only during lunch time (which I believe is from 12:00 – 3:45).
