Los Cabos Magazine | Spring 2016 79 are somewhere far away from México; this is where East meets México. A bougainvillea tree has been shaped into a bonsai dwarf sprouting blossoms of peach and white, likened to a cherry blossom. A wooden paddle wheel gives a soothing whooshing sound of water. For seating, choose either the air-conditioned dining room with a glass floor showcasing a Zen garden below, or the Japanese garden that has been lovingly tended by the owner. During our visit, we migrate toward one of two teppan yaki tables and decide to dine alfresco. We are seated in front of a spotless stainless steel table that seats six; we’re then offered beverages. It is almost sacrilegious to not have sake, but there are other choices of wine, Japanese beer, and the usual cocktails. We choose a cool sparkling wine that goes well with our choice of grilled items, like rib eye and shrimp with vegetables (another popular choice is a mixture of shrimp, fish, beef, salmon, and chicken). Sides include fried rice, asparagus, mushrooms, and other delicacies. Our chef expertly handles the knives and Daikoku in Cabo San Lucas features two teppanyaki grills.  spatulas, shaping the fried rice just so, stacking the sliced onions into a pyramid and then filling the hole with oil and setting it on fire, a delight to us as well as other diners nearby. On other occasions, the chef’s recommendations include a listing of nine rolls including a lettuce roll with avocado, cucumber, shrimp with Japanese horseradish, and a mixture of Japanese spices. Other favorites include noodles served in broth with chicken, fresh tuna sashimi, grilled eggplant with miso sauce, and fried baby crab.
