Featuring food grilled teppanyaki-style by
chefs in front of diners, Soho Hibachi has opened at 134 W. Front St. in
downtown Port Angeles
The brick-walled restaurant, formerly known as
Soho Asian Bistro before it was remodeled, is divided between teppanyaki
service areas and traditional Asian dishes served at tables and booths. There
is also a full-service bar.
Teppanyaki is a style of cooking
that’s as much about dinner as it is about the show. Knife-wielding chefs
perform knife and cookery tricks — such as flying shrimp and onion
volcanoes — as they work large grills in
the center of communal dining tables.
Soho Hibachi is open Monday
through Friday from 11 a.m.to 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 10
p.m.; phone 360-504-2682. Reservations are required for teppanyaki dining. The restaurant is owned by Don Mai.
