Teppanyaki still strong in Toledo

Japanese steakhouse style in Perrysburgh, if you check the different sites looking for the best places to eat in the area, Nagoya is a common name you will find. The place is based on the traditional Japanese cuisine using the iron griddle to cook food (Teppanyaki) and skill chefs to give the patrons a show. Flaming onion volcano, quick use of the knife, juggling the cooking utensils, catching eggs in the chef hat, and flip flattened chicken pieces to the costumers between others tricks.

I went to the place a couple times so had the chance to try a vast selection of their menu, including sushi, hot and cold appetizers, and the hibachi dinner (teppanyaki). The food is excellent and the teppanyaki show is good.

For the hibachi I got the seafood deluxe, which gives you swordfish, scallops, and shrimps. As a side fried rice, soup, salad, and fresh vegetables.

Sushi we got the boat so it was a mix of most of their roles and sashimi.

Finally, some of the entrees we got that I remember were tuna tartar, yellow tail jalapeno, and crispy calamari.

The food is excellent, no doubts one of the best restaurants in the area.

Japan reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Checks” where Kramer met a group of Japanese tourists.

Kramer: Uh, listen, uh, can I borrow some pillows?
Jerry: What for?
Kramer: Yeah, well, uh, my Japanese friends are gonna stay with me.
Jerry: I thought they all had suites at the Plaza?
Kramer: Well, I'm sorry, Jerry, we all don't have checks rolling in like you do.
Jerry: Well, what about all that money from the kimonos I wear?
Kramer: Well, they ran out of it. Manhattan can be quite pricey. Even with fifty thousand yen.
Elaine: Fifty thousand yen? Isn't that only a few hundred dollars?
Kramer: Evidently. Oh, by the way, tell Brett that his chest of drawers are a big hit. My guests are very comfortable in them.
Elaine: In them?
Jerry: You have them sleeping in drawers?
Kramer: Jerry, have you ever seen the business hotels in Tokyo? They sleep in tiny stacked cubicles all the time. They feel right at home.
Jerry: This has 'international incident' written all over it.
Kramer: Oh yeah, yeah.
