Lunch Bunch was loving the selections at Fuji Teppanyaki restaurant on Lady’s Island.
Elizabeth and I both ordered the gyoza appetizers, the steamed Japanese-style dumplings are my favorites. Elizabeth also had a bowl of tasty, and healthy, edamame (although she added extra salt!)
April also went with healthy options with a classic California roll and also CCCC — cucumber, crab and cream cheese roll. She liked it so much, April said, “Sushi is the bomb.” Kim went light also with the tuna tataki with spicy tuna sauce, which is so delicious.
Nikki tried the lunch special shrimp bowl made with shrimp sauteed with soy sauce and lemon and served with Fuji’s own shrimp sauce and dressed with onions and zucchini. There are also chicken bowls, beef bowls and vegetable bowls featured on the special lunch menu.
Buck and I both had combination meals with steak and scallops. You can choose any combination of shrimp, chicken, steak or scallops. It comes with rice — either white, brown or fried — and a side of awesome veggies, as well as a cup of miso soup.
My husband and I order take out from Fuji all the time because the food is always spectacular. I always get the steak and scallops and the steak is cooked perfectly and the seafood is fresh and tender, and their dipping sauces are heavenly.
Fuji is open for lunch and dinner and is located at 97 Sea Island Parkway, Hamilton Village, Suite 202, Lady’s Island. For take out and more information, call 843-524-2662 or online at www.fujibeaufort.com.
