Teppan Edo Lunch

Now as you may recall, I had just made this reservation at the Boardwalk’s Guest Services desk two days prior. The CM first told me there was no CP Package availability on Thursday at either of my DD’s two choices, Teppan Edo or Nine Dragons, but then refreshed her screen and magically both restaurants became available. Running late for our reservation I arrived at the check-in desk huffing and puffing after quickly climbing up the stairs of the Mitsukoshi building. Between gasps for air, I told the nice Japanese girl my name and ADR time. She looked on her screen, asked me to repeat my name and spell it out and then looked again but still couldn’t find our reservation. I then remembered that the Boardwalk CM had given me an ADR slip that I had stuffed into my purse and was relieved to find that it was still there. I gave her the slip and after typing in the reservation number she discovered that the ADR was actually for Tuesday (just a few hours after I had made the reservation with the CM). So obviously I had missed the reservation and my credit card had been charged for the full amount of the lunch package x 3 people or nearly $200! Though there was nothing they could do to correct that error (I would have to go to Epcot’s Guest Services for that), the very sweet girl took pity on me and spoke to her manager about fitting us in for the CP lunch. He gave the ok and we were promptly seated with a nice, friendly couple and a family of 3 that kept to themselves.

In case you have never been to Teppan Edo, you are seated with other guests at tables which hold 8 people.

 

 

We were then given this menu from which to choose an appetizer, entree, and dessert that are included with the CP package…

 

We were also each given a warm, wet cloth to wash our hands…

 

Next was a round of cocktails…

 

 

 

Tokyo Sunset – Coconut rum, creme de banana, peach schnapps and pineapple juice – $9.00

 

Then all three of us chose the Wafu Ribs for our appetizer. These were brought out partially cooked and then finished on the grill…

 

 

Wafu Ribs – Sake, Soy Sauce, Ginger-braised Pork Ribs – $9.95

We all enjoyed these. They were very meaty and the sauce was tasty.

Anyone who has been to a teppan restaurant knows what’s coming next after this…

 

Yep, onion volcano…

 

 

But since this is Disney World, it was made into a Mickey volcano…

 

Then it was time to grill the meats and shrimp…

 

The girls both ordered the same thing for their entree…

 

 

Steak & Chicken served with seasonal vegetables (mushrooms, zucchini, and onion), udon noodles, and sukiyaki beef rice – $29.95

While I had…

 

Steak & Shrimp – $30.95

Both of these entrees were very good…no complaints whatsoever.

And that just leaves dessert, which the choices are pretty limited here. We all three chose the…

 

Chocolate Ginger Cake – $6.95

This is actually pretty good.

I feel that I can always count on Teppan Edo for a great meal. Once again they did not let me down. Writing this review makes me wish that I was able to have lunch here during my upcoming trip. But of course, that would mean giving up something else. Hmmm…such a conundrum.
