Teppan Edo is the Japanese Hibachi restaurant in the World Showcase in Epcot. My daughter and I had dinner at this restaurant two years ago on our mother/daughter trip to Walt Disney World. We loved it so much and thought the rest of the family would love it too. One thing that is great about Walt Disney World restaurants is that they are fairly consistent in quality of food and menu items over time. The items may change a little bit but for the most part everything stays the same so if you really liked something last time you were there chances are you can go back two years later and it will still be the same quality and flavors you remember.
This is a one credit tables service restaurant on the dining plan. It includes non-alcoholic drink, entrée and dessert. You can purchase other items to accompany your meal if you wish. We started off ordering appetizers. We ordered two of the Sushi samplers (2 pieces spicy roll, 2 pieces California roll, and 3 pieces nigiri) and assorted tempura (2 pieces of shrimp, onion, squash, and pepper).e The kids LOVED the sushi. The tempura was good. I have to say the tempura green pepper was weird tasting to me though I though I thought the squash was amazing and would never have thought of making that.
The most disappointing part of the meal for me was the salad served before the meal. It was like a bagged lettuce mix with an Asian dressing. The dressing was too strong for me and I wish we were given a choice of salad dressings. Also, some spinach or other greens would have made the salad so much better. To me it almost seemed like a throw together item to make it seem like we were getting more with our meal. I could have done without it. My daughter finished my salad as she loved the dressing. To each her own.
My partner ordered a Sake flight to try the different versions of it. If you are adventurous and like Sake this is a fun way to try several versions of it.
Our chef was wonderful. He did all the usual Hibachi tricks – the onion volcano, flipping the spatulas and knives, and catching shrimp tails in his hat. Because my son was gluten-free he had his meal prepared first before the grill was contaminated by the noodles. He had his meal served with plain white rice and he chose steak and shrimp for his protein with the vegetables.
The vegetables were served first with the noodles. As the protein was cooked it was added to your plate. I didn’t get a second picture as I was busy eating. It was delicious. The steak was perfectly cooked to medium-rare as I had ordered. The shrimp was delicious too. The Yum Yum sauce was my favorite although the Ginger sauce was good too.
Dessert was a choice of ginger mousse cake (pictured above), mango mousse cake, or ice cream (my son chose green tea flavored). I liked the ginger mousse cake, but when I tried my daughter’s mango mousse cake I thought that was so much better. The ginger cake had a darker flavor while the mango was bright taste. It was just a personal preference.
We enjoyed our meal so much we will be heading back to Teppan Edo again for dinner on a future Disney trip!
