Teppanyaki and Yogurtland outside of the University of Hawaii. I haven’t been here in a while. One of my best benefits to where “The One and Only Teppanyaki Wagon” is located. We ordered then went into Yogurtland to get froyo.
I have the red velvet and vanilla in this cup. I filled it unusually high for me because it was right after I worked out and I was hungry. It’s sprinkled with cookie dough bites and marashino cherries (which aren’t a type of cherry but the way they are preserved) then drizzled with chocolate sauce. Have I mentioned that I’m super excited to try Pinkberry when we get back to Boston? I’ve missed frozen yogurt in Boston. I particularly like do it yourself places because I’m a control freak but I can live with just a regular frozen yogurt place.
I ordered the shrimp and steak plate from Teppanyaki, the blue truck that is parked on University Ave. It came with a side of corn, rice, an onion and a couple slices of cucumber. Teppanyaki (Teppan-iron, yaki-cook/fry/broil/etc) is food that is cooked on an iron griddle. Seeing as shrimp is part of the only sea food I eat. However, when you look at the plate below you will see two problems: the cucumber and the onion. I nibbled on the middle of the onion, it wasn’t cooked to the point where I couldn’t call it an onion, the taste was still rather strong. Then the cucumber has little taste and seems like a waste to eat it. It has that same watery taste that I dislike in tomatoes so much but not as bitter.
The shrimp was cooked nicely, not rubbery. And everything was seasoned great. It came with a sauce on the side that tasted a little like vinegar, maybe it was an oil based sauce or something but I thought that the plate tasted good enough to not need it. I was seriously hungry and the food was great; I ate most of the plate, ignoring the stuff I don’t like but tried. i highly suggest you go here. It’s not ridiculously expensive and you get a good portion for good food. We need one of these things in Boston.
