Yakitori House-Dinner

That evening we returned to Epcot and were exploring the World Showcase. Options for dinner were the Tangerine Cafe or Yakitori House (or Liberty Inn, if DCs weren't too fond of either choice, but we were hoping...). Thankfully, they were actually ok with Japanese food! So we walked into Yakitori


Fortunately there was like no line and we got our food almost immediately. DM got a thing of California rolls and DU got a thing of spicy tuna rolls. They split them together and said it was just fine. It was at least a very unique option on the plan and probably the only place for sushi.




DB, DC12 and DC10 got the undon noodle soup with the tempura shrimp. They had difficulties eating it because the noodles were so long and slippery. They probably would have chosen something else the next time. They said the shrimp kept slipping out of the tempura cover also..


I got the "shogun combo" which was white rice, teriyaki chicken and some kind of beef. The chicken was good and flavorful. The beef was stringy and had a lot of fat. The rice was also fine, especially when soaking up the excess teriyaki sauce. Overall I liked the meal; it was definitely filling. DD got the same thing but he also got a thing of tempura shrimp on top. As with the soupy thing, the shrimp was not easily attached to the tempura breading but still tasty.


Finally, DC13 got just the teriyaki chicken. She liked it but the sauce was way too much. They definitely put way more sauce on her chicken than mine, so if you like teriyaki sauce...!


For dessert they had 2 options: the ethnic (ginger cake) and the American (chocolate chip cookie). We got 6 cookies and 2 cakes. The cookies were fine. They were the individually wrapped ones (so difficult to open!) so they were small, but I didn't need a huge dessert either. The ginger cake was very ginger-y. It had a sweet taste but unless you love that ginger flavor, you probably couldn't eat more than a couple bites. It was interesting, but I think I'll stick with my American cookie.


In general, we liked this place because of the variety and taste. There was very limited seating inside but we were fortunate enough to find a big enough table. I would go back again and maybe try something new, although I would certainly not be opposed to ordering the same thing because it was yummy.

Yakitori House dinner: 8CS used (91, 98)
OOP cost: $105.08
Running total OOP cost: $393.27

Also a little P.S...while waiting for Illuminations by Norway, DD and I stopped in the Kringla Cafe and got 2 schoolbreads for breakfast the next morning using 2 snack credits. Nobody else wanted anything.

Kringla Cafe snacks: 2S used (91, 96)
OOP cost: $4.24
Running total OOP cost: $397.51

I'm enjoying reading along your reviews. I never knew there was a counter service place in Japan. I looked up the menu on all ears we may have to try it. Looking forward to reading more.

Thanks for reading! I didn't expect much from the Yakitori House but it was very good and definitely worth the trip! I hope you find more inspiration from my future reviews!

Great review of YH

It's going to be a hard choice between lunch here or back at the Tangierine Cafe

Loving your CS reviews!!! I wish my family would eat Japanese or Moroccan...they would have picked American. They're not adventurous. I'm hoping next trip I can convince them to try Tangerine cafe...here's to wishing.

Loving your reviews. You've actually gotten me excited for CS, and I thought my only options would be burgers and fries! Thanks for sharing. Yakitori looks particularly delicious.

I love teriyaki sauce, when ever I get teriyaki takeout i put extra on.....I probably almost go into a salt OD but it tastes sooooo good.

Loving the review. I laugh because I also have a cousin who eats nothing but chicken fingers when we go out, although she likes chicken ceasar salads so she would have been fine with Sunshine's.

Keep 'em coming! Im in!!

I had the same thing your son had at the Yakotori House and it was pretty good. We were surprised a bit that it was so good. Looking at the picture of your Ginger Cake, I wish I'd tried it now. I think we had cookies. That looks better. My husband had the California rolls and he really liked them.

I am joining in for this!!!

We are doing the regular DP in Dec but are thinking of doing 10 days Oct 2011 with QSDP so this will be very helpful.

I was wondering how do you know how much it would be? Does it say on the receipt? We did DP last year but I never really examined the receipt if I was using the DP to pay

We're thinknig of doing the QSDP for 3 nights in December so it's great to read a review of QS places

Did you eat anything extra? Or were all your meals and snacks covered?
