FUN FACT: My sister and her hubby got engaged one night after having dinner there. I think.
Shall we dive into a little bit of history? Yay, learning is fun, innit? So... what is hibachi? What I knew as hibachi is the American version, not the Japanese version. In Japan, Hibachi is actually an open-topped container traditionally used as a heater! There ARE Hibachi barbecue grills, but these are open-grate grills that use coal or gas flames. What we know as Hibachi in America is actually a Teppan (iron hot plate), and the style of food is Teppanyaki. Are we all caught up?
At Shogun the food comes with soup (basically broth) and a salad (basically chopped salad with LOTS of ginger dressing). Honestly, they're both quite underwhelming, but they give you something to do while waiting for the food to be ready.

Anyways, it was a fun outing. Thanks again for all your nice wishes to Cakes on here and Instagram and Facebook. Y'all are TOO MUSH!
P.S. My birthday is in exactly 2 months - May 29th (Democracy Day in Nigeria, Memorial Day in Hamrika, and some Bank Holiday in the UK). But I'm going to be kinda all by my lonely. I'm taking suggestions for what I should do - book a spa day for myself, or go and chill in a hotel somewhere and get pampered?
P.P.S Y'all should follow Tuke's Food Photography page on Instagram. But don't blame me for being hungry afterwards. Blame her.
