Mizuno’s at the Tropicana is a traditional Japanese steakhouse where diners watch their food being prepared as the chef comes right to their specially designed cook top table. This restaurant is great for groups because tables seat up to 8 guests. However, Mizuno’s is also great for dates, as well, and the hostess will gladly seat only two guests. Diners may choose from a special teppan yaki menu which includes a list of all your favorite entrees like chicken, steak, shrimp, scallops, lobster, and any combination of two or three entrees as well. When the chef comes to your table, the party begins. Using his expert culinary skills, the chef will put on a show while he cooks. Watch out as he chops the food at light speed and beware of flying veggies because these guys mean business. Not only do they cook, they put on an entire show using special techniques to light the grill and prepare the food. After you leave, you will feel as if you’ve just seen a magic show instead of watched someone prepare a traditional Japanese meal.
Teppan yaki is a traditional form of Japanese cooking and it is considered an art in Japan. Many chefs go to school for years to become teppan chefs. All teppan dinners come with soup, salad, veggies, and rice that are all cooked in front of you and served in generous portions that could easily be enough for two people. Also don’t forget to try one of sake selections or specialty cocktails from the bar. The Mizuno Colada and Happy Bell are just a few of the favorites here. Also don’t forget about dessert. Mizuno’s offers tempura cheesecake, tempura ice cream, and other deep fried specialties from the kitchen. Mizuno’s is prefect for special occasions and the chefs are willing and ready to embarrass any birthday guest with a few special surprises throughout the night.
