For anyone who has experienced a meal at Benihana and witnessed a skillful Teppanyaki chef spin and flip a hibachi fork and spatula effortlessly while simultaneously preparing a delicious multi-course feast before your eyes — here’s your chance to step behind the Teppanyaki grill to try it yourself.

If you think you have what it takes to cook, perform and entertain like only a true Benihana chef knows how, grab your Benihana apron and chef’s hat, because it’s time.  

Now, everyone can be the star of the show with the Be The Chef program. Don’t worry, even if you’re not an experienced chef, you’ll get a crash course and work side-by-side with a Benihana chef that will assist you in creating one of the most interactive meals you’ve ever been part of.

Show off your skills in front of your crew. Invite your closest friends or family to provide a dining experience you won’t find anywhere else. Guests will enjoy a meal of Benihana soup, Benihana salad, shrimp appetizer, hibachi vegetables, Splash ‘N Meadow entrees, homemade dipping sauces and Japanese hot green tea, all prepared by yours truly.

How To Turn Your Father Into A Hibachi Chef For Father’s Day

Getting dad a gift for Father’s day is always a struggle. There’s only so many years in a row you can get the poor guy a pair of new socks, which he somehow always needs. Benihana, the hibachi restaurant company, is offering a pretty amazing deal to anyone who wants to change things up for good ol’ dad.

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 12.30.18 PMFor just $200, you can get a Be The Chef package for your father this Father’s Day. The package includes dinner for three plus the guest chef, which is presumably your father or father-figure, but it certainly doesn’t have to be. This fun lesson in cooking can be enjoyed by anyone with a passion for teppanyaki.

The main feature of this package is the one-on-one lessons with a trained Benihana teppanyaki chef. The lucky guest chef will be able to learn how to make Benihana’s famed fried rice on top of a collection of the neatest tricks the teppanyaki chefs know.

On top of the lessons, the guest chef will also receive a Benihana apron, a Benihana chef’s hat, an Honorary Teppanyaki Chef certificate and a commemorative photo. Furthermore, any purchase of $50 or more from now until June 19th will reward you with a $10 gift card.

If you’re planning on getting the Be The Chef package for a loved one, I’d suggest killing two birds with one stone buy purchasing four $50 gift cards, then using that $200 to get the package. In exchange, you should get $40 to Benihana!

Not a bad deal, eh?


This Guy Makes Shawarma Really Fast, Let’s Add Mortal Kombat Music To That [WATCH]


This guy looks like a Benihana chef in fast forward. The Russian starts preparing some shawarma at a steady pace, but then the Mortal Kombat theme song starts playing in the background and things get too real.

Looking like a young Travis Barker in his prime, his hands start flailing around, picking up ingredients and flipping utensils, all while staying on beat. Then, for whatever reason, he pulls out a sword and starts doing tricks with it.

He pretty much killed that shawarma like a Scorpion fatality. Damn near flawless victory for the man with the “fastest hands in Russia.”
