But there is another section to Shogun restaurant: half of it is a traditional sushi bar and dining room with standard Japanese dishes. The other day, my mom and I were trying to decide where to eat lunch. When I suggested Shogun, she jumped at the opportunity.
We got there shortly after they opened (neither of us had eaten breakfast and we were hungry). We were the first customers in this section of the restaurant, though several other tables showed up within ten minutes.
I am sure I have eaten in this room before, but I don't remember when. It's possible it has been more than a decade.
(My mom's bento box, of which I did not get a photo, was even funnier. She had asked if the shrimp tempura came with vegetables or if it was just by itself. "In the bento box, it's just by itself," our waiter informed her. So she ordered the shrimp and veggie tempura. When it arrived, it turned out the shrimp tempura did indeed come with veggies, so she got about twenty pieces of tempura. Way too much.)
But neither of could come close to finishing our food.
I don't like the traditional dining room nearly as much as I like the teppanyaki, but there is no denying that it's really good, and a great value.
