Philadelphia Weekly takes a look at Kaizan at the Academy House and has a very hit-or-miss time of it.
Kaizanâ€™s big-ticket item is the $22 Kobe ishiyaki. The dish comes with squash, mushrooms, six slices of American Kobe beef so well marbled they almost look white and a hot stone grill for DIY searing. After a few seconds on each side, itâ€™s one beefy little orgasm after another. Strawberry ice cream mochi and green tea ice cream encased in funnel-cakey tempura make pleasing post-coital treats.
