This restaurant was right in our neighborhood, barely ten minutes from where we live. I was curious about the flavors we may encounter. Once inside, on the right was the Sushi section; on the left was the Teppanyaki Grill.
Tuna Tataki was what we tried first from the Sushi side, it was nicely seared on the outside and beautiful-pink on the inside, generously sprinkled with sesame seeds and green onions. Underneath was a little surprise of shredded carrots that were perfect to soak up the lovely seasoned ponzu sauce. Miss I. was about to pick up the plate and lick up the remaining sauce. I had to stop her. Fast.
Salads can go either way: some people love salads, others do not but this one was too good. The House Salad was fresh, crispy and the dressing was full of texture yet the flavor was subtle and at the same time left a definite impression on the tongue. The tomato was a nice, cooling and enlivening addition.
LOVE to see fire as long as it does not burn us and the cooking at the Teppanyaki grill was indeed very entertaining.
We all liked the show, where live cooking on a hot teppanyaki grill occurs. It was a learning experience for the chickens to see someone cooking right in front of them, with all that fire.
I am a carnivore and Ruson Steakhouse caters to this as the Sirloin and Scallop Teppanyaki was quite a protein fest. I love meat and seafood but had to control myself, I was not alone and had to share! At the end it was total belly-happiness for all.
It had to be the Thai donuts as Miss Y. is quite taken with them. So comforting it was to dip something freshly fried and hot into a cool bowl of condensed milk.
We liked this place because not only was the food very good, the service was also attentive and cordial.
Ruson Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar is good for lunch or dinner, for when you are alone or with family or just hungry for the simple gratification of eating well.
