To get back into the swing of things, I decided to focus this week on my little city of Abilene. Abilene, Abilene, prettiest town you ever seen… Ok, so it might not be all that pretty (at least not when you grew up on the coast), but it is a pretty cool little town. One of the things that makes Abilene so great are the awesome little restaurants like Hashi Teppan on Rebecca Lane.
Hashi Teppan is a little Japanese restaurant that’s fairly new to Abilene. Hashi combines the best of take out with hibachi style cuisine. The food is incredibly yummy. I’m not usually a fan of veggies in my fried rice (I know, typical American), but I actually really liked their rice, especially the corn. The chicken and hibachi steak have been tender, moist, and impeccably seasoned. The hubby enjoyed the shrimp as well. I don’t eat sea-dwellers. They also serve a selection of Japanese sodas if you’re looking for a refreshing drink with an Asian flair. We’ve always had pleasant service, even when they’ve been quite busy. The atmosphere is fun and laid back. The restaurant and rest rooms have been clean each time we’ve been there. The music is mellow, but not like slow jazz mellow, more acoustic covers mellow. They even have real flowers on the tables!
One of the best things about Hashi? When you leave you don’t smell like a hibachi grill. I love me some hibachi, but I don’t want to smell like it for the rest of the day, and that’s never been a problem at Hashi! You get all the yummy hibachi taste without the lingering musk! (I might be kinda weird about that, but that’s a big selling point for me!)
The hubby and I have been a few times, and I’ve grabbed lunch to go from Hashi a time or two now, and we’ve never been disappointed. So, if you’re looking for lunch plans, check out Hashi Teppan!
