Located in Alexander Promenade Place, Hibachi 101 is a convenient spot for well-priced Japanese fare. Upon walking in, I was hit with the minimalist vibe and Asian flair that simultaneously suggests good sanitation and authenticity.
The menu has something for everyone, from classic hibachi meat/vegetable entrees to sushi to– surprisingly–cheesecake. Not only that, but the prices are fair for the portion sizes; meals with a drink range from around $11 to $25.
I have visited Hibachi 101 several times, and every time I was met with friendly faces. After I approached the counter to order, I was given a number and waited for about ten minutes.
After receiving my food, I basked in the glory of the drink and sauce station. Coke Zero and Vault are available for those who want it, and the sauces available include ginger, white and soy.
These condiments easily compliment my meal: a hibachi steak entree, served with hibachi-style vegetables and piles of rice.
On a personal basis, I have always appreciated Hibachi 101’s fresh, large portions of hibachi at a great price. For anyone begging for a new, classic Japanese staple restaurant, may I kindly point you in the direction of this joint.
