Hibachi On The High Seas
By: Sari Palmeri
One of my favorite things to do on a cruise is eat. The food is amazing, the desserts are yummy and there are self-serve ice cream machines. When you are on a cruise you definitely are never left hungry.
I had a group cruise on the Norwegian Breakaway and my kids love going to the buffet. They feel “older” because they walk around and see what they want to eat. It’s a great place to get kids to try something new because if they don’t like it they just go get something else.
In addition to the buffet there are main dining rooms and specialty restaurants. One of the specialty restaurants is called Teppanyaki and it is a hibachi restaurant. This type of restaurant is one that I have always loved, but the one on this ship I find amazing. The first time we cruised on the Norwegian Breakaway we ate here which is why we went again when we sailed on the Norwegian Breakaway a second time. This time is was even better than the first. The food was the same, but our chef was exceptional; he was so interactive! He was tossing food for each person to try and catch. One of my boys caught it and the other didn’t. After a few tries he said “close your eyes and try that way”. He then handed us the food to put in his mouth and when my son opened his eyes the chef posed as if he has tossed it and we all cheered. He also let my boys go behind the cook top and made it like they were helping him cook.
For the specialty restaurants on Norwegian cruises reservations are recommended and are at an additional cost, unless they have the specialty dining package as a promotion. For us, this meal will always be worth the splurge because the food was delicious, we had lots of laughs and it is a meal my boys will never forget.
I highly recommend dining at this restaurant when sailing on the Breakaway. I can help you with your cruise and I will make your dining reservations. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on a Norwegian Cruise.
