Friday night we made a reservation at the Teppanyaki Kyota Restaurant for Saturday. Tonight Steve and I walked down the hill to the new Japanese Restaurant and it’s 34 degrees outside so the Hot Miso soup filled with onions was a welcome beginning. I think I was hungry and chilled so didn’t get that photo! Just ate it heartily. Next we shared a House Salad with Mango Mint dressing and a Sapporo beer to accompany the meal. Grilled Pork with Ginger and Onions and then Yaki Soba a Japanese Noodle Dish with Shrimp. After those dishes we ate a Yaki Onigiri (Grilled Rice Ball). The wife of the owner/chef explained how to put it between the seaweed leaves and eat it. Pickled radish was on the side. The cooking shown in the slideshow is Okonomi Yaki- a Japanese Pancake.
We finished with a square of Green Tea Cheesecake for dessert. Light and not too sweet. And then a very chilly hike back up the hill to home. Everything is cooked to order just for you. Perfectly. All fresh ingredients prepared with attention to detail.
And a word from the Chef off their Facebook page as he doesn’t want to turn customers away but also wants to make the customers in the restaurant happy-
I finally tell you that I decided the date to soft-open Teppanyaki Kyoto restaurant. It is January 15th. That is this coming SUNDAY. Only counter seats. Because of new style of restaurant in Pittsburgh, we take only reservation for beginning of a few months. Please CALL me to make a reservation. Phone nunber is 412 441 1610.
I am looking forward seeing you soon.
Do call and make a reservation. The food is delicious and Bryant Street is enhanced by the presence of another excellent restaurant! We had a good time and a wonderful meal.
