Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse meets high expectations!

In an all around great day we wanted to try a new place we hadn’t been before.  Wasabi was that place.

2010-03-14 16.28.45Wasabi is located on Woodruff Road and I never really knew what it was and never really looked into it.  I was expecting a completely traditional type restaurant.  I didn’t know they had a Hibachi Grill section.  I am a Kanpai fan for sure but the design in Wasabi was aSauces lot more pleasing to the eye.  Not as cramped.  We sat down and ordered up.  I had the Hibachi Shrimp and Teryaki Chicken.  The soup was great and I always opt out of the  salad…yes I am picky.  The waiter was nice.  Not too over the top.  I got everything I needed and no fluff.  Not bad or good.

We are a rough bunch sometimes.  I don’t hide the fact that I love to flirt with and joke with my waiters and waitresses.  Our chef was great at taking my crap.  He was actually a lot of fun.  They have the same process as Kanpai.  Rice and vegetables first and then the meat.  I love me some zucchini and they had LOADS of that.  The rice was amazing and the shrimp….oh my goodness so so good!  I like meaty shrimp and it was just that.  I wasn’t as wild about the Teryaki Chicken but the Filet that James ordered was very tasty.  Even if it was burned as he likes it well done.

All in all the experience was great.  I love the atmosphere.  I would like to try the sushi there and see how it compares to Kanpai and Irashai.  I would certainly go back and explore the menu.

I don’t think I want to do the brownie points anymore but I would give this place 9 brownies.  I still prefer Kanpai because I am a creature of habit.  Go there!!
