Epcot World Showcase fans already love the Japanese pavilion. With such awesome exhibits, architecture and cast members filling guests in on details about Japanese culture- what’s not to love? There are delicious quick service meal options in Japan as well as drink carts serving up authentic Japanese beverages. However, guests looking to enjoy a wider array of Japanese food need to visit Teppan Edo Japan to enjoy a Japanese steakhouse experience.
1. Immersive Dining Experience
Guests that have dined at a Japanese steakhouse before know that this interactive dining experience is as much about the ambiance and experience as it is the food. Teppan Edo is an immersive dining experience from the moment you enter the pavilion. The restaurant is located on a stilted building right next door to another eatery, Tokyo Dining.
If you are a wine/beer connoisseur, or looking to try something new for the first time you should have a glass of Sake with dinner. Sake is a rice wine served in Japan that shares some characteristics of both beer and wine. Guests looking for value can buy sake by the carafe or bottle to share with their party. If you want variety, consider splurging on the sake flight and try three different types of sake for around twenty dollars.
3. Make New Friends
As is the case with any Japanese steakhouse, parties that are not large enough to fill a table alone will be grouped with additional parties to fill a table. For some people dining with strangers is a turnoff, for my family it was an opportunity to make new friends. Regardless, be prepared to dine with others if you have a group smaller than ten guests.
