Come for the Gimmick, Not the Food

695 Kidder St
Wilkes Barre, PA 18702

We came here on a Sunday night for dinner.  Perhaps a bit surprisingly, it was quite crowded - but, we got seated within about 5 minutes.  We sat down around one of the hibachi grills, and gave our orders about 10 minutes later.  Another 10 minutes passed by when one of the hibachi chefs came along.  The chef, referring to himself as "Justin Bieber," was energetic, interacted with the customers, did the traditional light the grill on fire wiz bangs, etc.  It was fun, however, it was pretty obvious he was making one of the customers quite uncomfortable by constantly driving the attention towards her.

One of the pros (maybe cons?) of the hibachi experience is that we got to see all the ingredients that went into making our dish.  I ordered the salmon hibachi, and let me tell you, a lot of butter, oil, and soy sauce went into making this dish.  The soy sauce was absolutely overwhelming, masking any flavor there was to the salmon, rice, and vegetables.  The plus is that the salmon wasn't overcooked!

Oh, yes, I didn't manage to take any other picture besides the salad that came with my dish :)
