A major hole has been filled. If you wanted hibachi in NYC your only option was Benihana. Yummy, but it’s a whole sit down process and definitely on the more expensive side. And if you wanted takeout style hibachi (like my beloved Hiawa’s in Savannah or Inoko Express in Athens), you were completely out of luck. Thankfully a food truck has arrived on the scene to save us all.
Hibachi Heaven makes perfect fried rice, veggie, and protein bowls in about two minutes for an average of about $9. And while they have the typical ginger and pink sauces (sometimes referred to as steak sauce and shrimp sauce), they also have a creamy wasabi sauce and sriracha on hand.
It’s hard to believe Hibachi Heaven is the first (and at this point the only one) to recognize that NYC was in need of a speedy hibachi meal. I’m just glad somebody finally gets it!
