As though this summer wasn’t sizzling enough, the latest new eatery on Lanterns has everyone loving the new food sensation in town. Kobe Sizzler (pronounced Ko-bay) has taken the halal food scene by storm – or should I say sizzle? The dynamic trio of friends who launched this franchise are confident that you’ll love the experience of dining with them. Amin Diwan, Ejaz Vastani and Kenneth Lobo have been friends for 26 years, and big fans of the Indian restaurant chain that has recently started global franchising. When it came to dining options in the GTA, they wanted to bring something to the table that offered patrons a food “experience”. They are thrilled to introduce a complete sizzler platter menu for the first time in Canada!
Starting with an extensive choice of appetizers, the owners highly recommend the chicken lollipops, which they claim are the best you’ll find in the GTA. If you want the true Kobe experience personalized to Canadian taste, then sink your teeth into the poutine platter that comes complete with a topping of melted cheese. As a personal fan, I can confidently tell you that Kobe has reinvented poutine for Canadians. If you haven’t liked it before, you have to try it at Kobe Sizzler, I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed. Forget the side of French fries, this perfect combination outdoes any other!
Moving on to the main course, you’ll love the added kick to the cuisine with individual sauce options that flare up the flavour in every sizzler. Choose between garlic, pepper and Szechuan to add your own preference to your meal. There is a generous portion of your selection of grilled meat, vegetables and side topped with the in house sauce. The best part… your meal is served on a sizzling skillet that lives up to the restaurant’s claim to fame. Lanterns recommends that you try their Kobe Special Chicken Sizzler or their Hokkaido Chicken. If you’re a sea food lover, then don’t skip the Prawn and Fish Sizzler with oyster sauce! The succulent meat is seasoned specifically to enhance flavor on the sizzling skillet as the flavors come together in a medley of perfection.
Don’t forget to leave room for dessert! Kobe’s signature brownie sizzler is the perfect way to end your meal! Not only do you treat yourself to a delectable temptation, you get to watch as your server pours a rich and creamy chocolate sauce over a warm soft brownie and scoops of ice cream. This delightful dessert is just as much a treat to watch as it is to eat!
As food critics, we strongly believe that if the owner of the restaurant is around, you can be sure of the best service, and at Kobe Sizzler, not only will you see the owners, but they’ll also pass by your table for a chat and to hear how your experience at Kobe has been. As Kenny says, everyone who comes to Kobe Sizzler is our guest, and they are treated like guests with the best hospitality that can be offered. But before you make plans to visit, make sure you call ahead for a table. Kobe is the sizzling hot new sensation in halal dining, and you don’t want to miss out!
