Hosabi Kitchen is one of my favorite restaurants

My husband and I discovered Hasabi Kitchen a few months ago. I had read a review on the internet that indicated that the prices were reasonable and the food was really good. We finally decided to try it for ourselves.

The first time I went, we saw that the place was pretty, the owner named Ms. Lorraine (her first name) was friendly, the wait staff was helpful, and the restrooms were clean. We were seated right away. They handed us a menu that had Chinese items on one side and Japanese items on the other.

I ordered from the Japanese side of the menu and got Teriyaki Steak. It came with sweet carrots, a vegetable mix of zucchini, mushrooms, broccoli, snow peas, and onions. You also got a medium-size salad, a large serving of Fried Rice, and a fortune cookie. My husband also ordered from the Japanese side of the menu and got Habichi Chicken. We both loved what we got. The meal was so large for me that I took half of it home. So not only were the prices reasonable, I got two meals out of it.

The next week we returned. This time, he ordered from the Chinese side of the menu. He enjoyed what he got very much. I tried their Sweet and Sour Soup from the Chinese side of the menu and again ordered the Teriyaki Steak from the Japanese side of the menu.

We have been back about every week. They are closed on Mondays. We usually show up on Tuesday or Thursday. We have gone so often that Ms. Lorraine knows our names. My husband usually orders either Teriyaki Chicken or Teriyaki Steak. I used to always order the Teriyaki Steak.

Once I started the Fit for Life diet that proposes that you never mix proteins and starches in the same meal, I now order the Teriyaki Vegetables and absolutely love it. Check out the picture below.

We have enjoyed every thing that we have ordered from that place. Yum!

Extra Teriyaki sauce

Their Teriyaki sauce is home made and delicious. I like it so much I always order extra. They serve it to us in a soup bowl and give us plenty. Then I ladle that sauce onto my rice and veggies. See the picture below.

By the way, they served my meal to me just the way I like it. My requests:

* Instead of the sweet carrots, please give me extra veggies.

* No onions please.

* Light on the broccoli and other veggies.

* Lots of zucchini and lots of mushrooms.

FYI - I never much cared for mushrooms before. I love their mushrooms dipped in that teriyaki sauce. I think that teriyaki sauce might make rubber tires taste good.

When we went on February 17th, I had my camera with me. I took a video of their pretty aquarium fish and also pictures of my food.

Here is the short video that I uploaded to YouTube below.

Hi Debbie,

Mmm delicious, our main meal (supper) is cooking in the kitchen and the lovely aroma plus reading htis hub is really making me hungry!!!

Our Chinese and all others around as far as I know always stay closed on a Tuesday.

We do go for a Chinese meal every now and then and I love it, my favourite I think.

As it happens we have an aquarium in our too and looks very similar to the one in your hub.

I also love the pineapple in batter and coated with golden syrup.

I think the only other place that would come close to a Chinese meal and that's KFC.

Another weakness of mine !!!

Thank you so much for this one Debbie,

Take care

Eiddwen.

Eiddwen,

Thanks for your great comment. I enjoy pineapple in batter and syrup as well. Yum!

My husband loves KFC. We sometimes go there as they have a buffet. I enjoy having a variety of food to choose from while only paying one price.

Have a delightful and tasty day!

Love ya,

Debbie
