The Carnival Horizon will debut the brand’s first-ever teppanyaki venue when she enters service next spring.
Located on the Promenade Deck, Bonsai Teppanyaki will have two eight-seat tables and offer a wide-ranging menu and chefs that Carnival Cruise Line promises will “engage with diners and dazzle them with their knife skills and other performing elements.”
Carnival said that diners begin their meal with samplings of five appetizers – Miso Soup;Kabuki Salad with Ginger Dressing; Teppanyaki Shrimp with Soy Butter and Salsa Vinaigrette; Pork Belly Yakitori with Sesame Asparagus Fries and Seaweed Salad; and Spicy Tuna on the Rocks with Onion Sesame Sauce and Den Miso.
Guests can then choose from a variety of entrees: Lobster Tail with Yuzu Cream and Citrus Kosho; Filet Mignon with Truffle Salt, Garlic Chips and Champagne Cognac Flambé; Teriyaki Salmon with Savory and Sweet Teriyaki Glaze; Black Cod with Soy Reduction;Shrimp with Young Lettuce and Gyukuro Tea; Shichimi Spiced Grilled Chicken with Teriyaki Sauce; and Grilled Tofu with Vegetables, Yaki Udon, and Teriyaki Anticucho Sauce.
Four different combination dinners are available, including filet mignon/shrimp, shrimp/spiced grilled chicken, filet mignon/teriyaki salmon, and filet mignon/lobster tail.
Meals end on sweet note with a Chocolate Bento Box with Green Tea Ice Cream.
All dishes include fried rice and stir-fried vegetables. Prices for Bonsai Teppanyaki are on a per-person basis and include all appetizer selections, entrée and dessert. The restaurant will be open for lunch on sea days and for dinner every night of the cruise.
The new teppanyaki venue will be located within Carnival Horizon’s stand-alone Bonsai Sushi restaurant that will serve traditional sushi, sashimi, rolls and “bento ships” on an a la carte basis.
