So how does Soho serve such ample dishes at such reasonable prices? The answer is simple: Soho’s expert chefs forgo the usual flame-throwing, knife-juggling show found at traditional Japanese steakhouses and instead, they quickly and quietly craft the same delicious dishes behind-the-scenes — in the half the time, and for half the price.
One of the Tennessee Valley’s most beloved spots for Japanese carryout, Soho Hibachi, is famous for its generous portions — so enormous you’ll have leftovers for days. The udon soup, for example, featuring soft and plump, potato-like wheat noodles, is served in such a large bowl that it could double as a serving dish. The hibachi dishes, made with the diner’s choice of protein and a side of white rice, fried rice, brown rice or noodles, boast helpings piled so high that you’ll need both hands to carry your plate.
But don’t let the size of Soho’s entrees prevent you from pre-gaming with one of its appetizers, which are too authentic to miss. For example, the harumaki is a light, flaky Japanese-style vegetable egg roll served with a side of creamy white dipping sauce; and the gyoza a warm, moist Japanese-style pork dumpling served with a side of soy sauce. Or, there is also the savory edamame, a tried-and-true favorite.
Soho Hibachi’s menu also features miso and clear soup, as well as a house salad with ginger dressing.
With two convenient locations, a Soho-sized feast is never too far away. Whether you dine-in or carry-out, chances are you’ll be taking food to-go.
