Hibachi Heaven first hit the NYC streets last June, and things are obviously going well. Not only did they add a 2nd truck in January, but they added a 3rd truck this month. Talk about going from 0 to 60 in no time.
This would be big news by itself, but Nick also told us about a possible international expansion he is working on that would be craaazy! We will let you know as soon as Nick gives us the green light.
As for yesterday’s lunch, we haven’t tried HH’s tofu yet, so that was what we got. It’s the least expensive item on the menu at $7.
There are 3 sauces to choose from at HH on the menu. We chose the Heavenly Ginger Sauce. They also have Wasabi-Infused Mayo and Yum Yum Sauce, a mayo based sauce with cajun spices and sugar.
Opening the container, the strong, wonderful smell of ginger permeated our airspace. Good thing we’re in an office and not a cubicle.
The tofu was very soft and clean tasting. We didn’t taste much besides the tofu and ginger sauce, but that was expected. The tofu wasn’t like eating a cloud, as it is in the best of places, but it was certainly good. We would get it again.
The ginger sauce was good on the tofu, but it was even better on the veggies. There were carrots, broccoli and cabbage, and they were all crisp, fresh and delicious with the ginger sauce.
In addition to these crunchy veggies, there were onions and mushrooms that were sauteed longer and were softer.
On the side was brown rice, but you can get fried rice if you prefer. The brown rice was nice and firm, and was also topped with some ginger sauce. With the light tofu and veggies, the rice gave us some ballast to get through the afternoon, although we were far from stuffed.
You may also find them in a foreign land soon, but we can say no more for now. Just know that we’re not talking about Canada or Mexico, but literally overseas.
