During my vacation I ate twice in Hibiki restaurant. I was disappointed to discover that since my last visit to the hotel, this restaurant has been downscaled. Previously they offered both sushi, sashimi, rolls etc plus two large teppenyaki tables. This time, they are only doing teppenyaki - bit of a shame as I enjoyed being on an all inclusive vacation and eating lovely sushi every day. Ideal for those of us who are gluten free.
Anyway, the teppenyaki was a fun experience. The chef is an entertaining and talented guy. We were served Miso Soup to start - although I couldn’t have any as they had thrown the packet away so they didn’t know if it was gluten free. Then the chef started his performance with the hot griddle on our table. It was a collection of different meats and egg fried rice and noodles. From this, I was able to have everything except the noodles. The chef was careful to give me my food first before putting soya sauce/other sauces containing gluten onto the griddle on everyone elses food. They did have a bottle of tamari sauce, so he used this for my egg fried rice and they gave me a dish of this for dipping. The various parts of the meal were: tofu, chicken breast, lamb chop, beef, duck, seabass, king prawns, sweet potato and egg fried rice (plus noodles for the non gluten free). It was all cooked to perfection and enjoyable. However, my gluten eating husband said that I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more with the sauces - peanut for the chicken, garlic butter for the beef, sticky ginger for the duck etc… I suspect that they may not have contained wheat/gluten but it was easier for the chef to give me everything plain, rather than working out what I could and could not have. The desserts in this restaurant are dire like the other eateries in this hotel. They are prepackaged frozen desserts, all containing gluten. I was stuck with ice cream - AGAIN. But as I like ice cream, it wasn’t the end of the world :-) My reviews of gluten free places to eat are on my blog too: http://glutenfreedelights.tumblr.com/
