ORLANDO, Fla. — In this week’s Chef’s Kitchen, discover a Japanese dining experience that feels like a dinner show.

Shogun Japanese Steakhouse at the Rosen Inn is celebrating 35 years. It happens to be Harris Rosen’s favorite place to eat. Rosen, 84, the founder of the Rosen Hotels & Resorts, always orders the Shogun Special. It’s a teriyaki fried rice dish with proteins of your choice, like shrimp, chicken, scallops and beef.

Part of the restaurant is dedicated to made-to-order meals cooked teppanyaki style. That’s where guests get to see the character, wit, and mad spatula skills of a teppanyaki chef cooking — and entertaining — right in front of them.

Shogun is open nights, Thursdays — Sundays.

Hungry? Let’s cook!
