Teppan Edo

A hidden dining experience at Disney’s Epcot, Teppan Edo, a Japanese Culinary Experience, takes the Japanese experience to a whole new level.

You may need to look closely to find it, as the restaurant is tucked away atop a massive flight of stairs.

The decor is breathtaking with its modern architecture and bold colors.

The front dining area is a wall of windows. You get a beautiful view of EPCOT from your table.

As you walk through the long corridor you get views of zen gardens, streams, and bridges. The serene views of Disney’s Japan.

You also get to see traditional Japanese artwork that adorns the walls of Teppan Edo.

Next, you take your seat at your table. They offer plastic dividers as a covid safety precaution.

The table is a row of seats facing the main grill where your Teppan Chef will work his magic.

You are offered chopsticks or regular utensils if you don’t know how to use chopsticks. 

Kids Extras

They made kid-friendly chopsticks for my children which they LOVED and had to bring home.

If your children like coloring, they offer Frozen 2 coloring books to keep the kids busy until your chef arrives.

After the meal, take the kids over to EPCOT’s newest ride Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure for more fun!

The Menu

Teppan Edo offers a variety of choices, even on their lunch menu. I opted for the spicy calamari. You can also have sushi with any meal.

For the Entree, I chose the Nihonbashi. Nihonbashi is steak and chicken, garden salad, udon noodles, vegetables, and white rice.

Once you order your food you have a short wait and you are brought your salad. Then, your chef comes with all the ingredients needed to prepare your meal at the table. 

The Teppan Edo Chefs

This is where the fun begins! The chefs are amazingly talented and are able to whirl and twirl their cooking utensils.

They spin and flip them and are very friendly and ours was pretty comical!

Kento, our chef, started off the meal with a visit from a very special guest… Mickey Mouse! No, the actual Mickey Mouse was not there but our chef was able to craft one out of oil on the grill, it was very cool.

He also made us Minnie too!
