Tokyo Samurai = Food + Fun
Tokyo Samurai in the Lantana Town Center (next to Kroger) is FUN. F-U-N! It’s fun for kids and it’s fun for adults and the food is great!
They have all kinds of delicious traditional Japanese food as well as sushi and sashimi. For those of you who are a little hesitant to try raw fish we suggest trying the Shrimp Tempura roll. It’s panko fried shrimp with a bit of avocado and thin slices of cucumber that is wrapped in seaweed and rice. A sweet sauce is drizzled on top which compliments the creamy flavor of the avocado.
If you’re feeling like trying something a bit more daring than the standard California Roll we recommend the Eel Roll. Don’t let the name scare you. It’s a cooked roll that features broiled eel that is coated in a rich sauce that is made from mirin, soy and eel bones, commonly referred to as eel sauce. The richness of the eel is mellowed out with avocado. We usually ask for extra eel sauce since we like it on EVERYTHING.
There are bento boxes and lunch specials as well as special sushi rolls for both lunch and dinner. A bento box includes miso soup, house salad, and the daily side. For beginners we suggest sticking to the Teriyaki Bento Box but we highly suggest trying the Katsu Bento Box with pork. It’s panko fried crunchy pork that is drizzled in Tonkatsu sauce that is just amazing. Seriously.
It’s fine to sit at the tables and get a great meal. But if you really want the whole experience at Tokyo Samurai, go to the Hibachi area. You’ll belly up to a bar with other families and watch the chef actually make your meal while he entertains everyone. One great part of the experience is meeting the other families at the table. The other includes all the fun tricks that the chef does while preparing your meal (it usually always includes an onion volcano). He takes turns flipping food into everyone’s mouth while you watch him cook (don’t try this if you’re horrible at catching like we are). The Hibachi meals include your choice of white or fried rice and stir fried vegetables with house soup and salad. Then you have a choice of add-ins including chicken, salmon and even lobster. It can get a little bit pricey, depending on the type and number of add-ins, but remember, you’re getting LOTS of good food AND entertainment.
Shh! Granny J has a secret. Food chain restaurants aren’t always the best. Flower Mound and Highland Village now have
