Although you generally know what to expect when you go to Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse, you'll still be happy when you get it. Hibachi-style meat and seafood only seems to get better when there's a goofy spatula-wielding chef serving it up. And don't forget about that creamy, aptly named "yum-yum" sauce, which, like Midas, turns everything it touches to gold. Don't wait for a special occasion, because flying shrimp are amazing every night of the year.
