Just returned home from a week stay at the GBP Coba. Had the oportunity to have a dinner at a show table a the Mikado Ala Carte restaurant. Unfortunately the time we received for our reservation was 5:30pm. I prefer a time of 6:30 or later to get as much time in at the beach & still have time to get ready for dinner.
We were a family of 8 and we were seated with 2 other couples at our show table in a private corner room. The teppanyaki chef fired up the large vent fan & started the show with a flash of metal spatula drumming on the cooktop.
Menus were offered & drink orders taken. Choose one appetizer, your entree & a dessert. Would really have liked to have the miso soup also,but none of us left hungry.
Most of our group opted for either the nigiri sushi or sushi rolls. 2 ordered the yakitori skewers. All were delicious. Most of the group also opted for the "surf & turf" entree. Very nice beef with a mixture of seafood that included shrimp, scallops & mussels. One odd thing is that the chef prepared the fried rice before the meat so if you want to have your rice with your protein you have to hold yourself back from eating it all.
For desserts a few of us ordered the delicous "banana egg roll". It was the best in my opinion in that it had a little ice cream, chocolate sauce & the yummy warm & crispy banana. The rice pudding while served in a pretty glass was a little disappointing. The fried ice cream looked good & I was sad that I didn't get to try a bite of it.
It was our favorite meal of our vacation. I'm glad we had it as our last dinner or everything else would have been downhill.
Did feel a little rushed. The other ala carte restaurants really draw out the meal to be a major presentation.
