I have recently become a fan of sushi and my boyfriend and I go out for it fairly often. We normally go to Mikado in Maple Shade, NJ, which has really great sushi, however, the last time we were craving Asian food we decided to try something different and have hibachi at Yokohama, which is also in Maple Shade. It was, hands down, the most fabulous hibachi I have ever had! Though it is in a strip mall,upon entering I was impressed by the hip, modern Asian decor. They offer the standard hibachi fare, but it is going to be hard to visit another hibachi restaurant after tasting the food at Yokohama. We started with the wasabi shumai appetizer, which was a wonderful blend of different textures and flavors; I especially loved the strong wasabi kick. Their soup (which, along with salad, comes with the dinner,) is an onion based clear soup, which I like better than the traditional miso. The fried rice (they use sesame seeds, which is a nice touch,) was to die for. I had the scallops and filet mignon dinner and the meat was incredible. My boyfriend had the steak and shrimp and we both had the same opinion of our meals: the seafood was super fresh and the meat was tender and delicious. (I don’t think I could go there without having the scallops again, they were so good!) The chefs are friendly and the drinks are good, but pricey (I had a Geisha martini, which was sweet and tasty). We left thoroughly satisfied and plan to go back VERY, soon!
