For my mom's birthday, we wanted to take her to a restaurant we had not yet visited, so we could try something different. My brother suggested Japengo at the Hyatt Regency, and I'm so glad that was the restaurant we chose. We had a group of six and were given a private room. It was so nice because we had privacy and plenty of space yet we were not forgotten. Our server, Pam, was so pleasant and attentive. She took such good care of us, making sure that we were having a great experience and were not wanting for anything. It was first-class service delivered pleasantly and sincerely. We had some appetizers (sushi), and it was delicious. My husband and I arrived a bit late to dinner, but before we got there, the rest of the party had dined on scallop appetizers, which they said were very, very good. We would've ordered it, too, but we looked at the menu and were already getting excited with the choice of entrees. I had the kalbi short ribs, and they were prepared perfectly. Very tasty, and it included kim chee. The portions were quite generous, too. My kal bi entree came with rice. Several folks were hankering for noodles, and they ordered the Shanghai noodles. That was very good, too. Lots of scallops and shrimp and crab. We were celebrating a birthday, so we had to have dessert. :-) Okay, who am I kidding? Even if we weren't celebrating a birthday, we would've wanted dessert. We ordered several desserts and were very impressed. Being a cookie dough fan, I had to get the chocolate chip cookie dough brownie. The hubby ordered a chocolate ganache with ice cream, and it was very good. We also had the creme brulee and cheesecake. The desserts were great and well-sized, so I don't think one would go wrong ordering any of those tempting desserts. All were delcious and well-presented! This was our first time at Japengo, and we were impressed. We'll certainly plan on coming back for the great food and the very nice customer service. We left the restaurant happy and full, eager for our next visit.
