Chomp Restaurant Review

: Chomp (and its sister restaurant Riptide Rockin' Sushi in Mission Viejo) is a more modern rendition of Benihana. Diners sit at the teppan tables if they want to order the dramatic meat, seafood and rice dishes that are prepared on flat woks. All drama aside, the venue offers a timed, reasonably-priced all-you-can-eat nightly dinner. For 70 minutes, guests can dig into a selection of fresh and artistic classic sushi and signature fusion rolls such as the baked crawfish and crabmeat roll topped with eel sauce. The AYCE offerings also include soups, salads, robata items and a few American bites. A small number of cocktails, sak├ęs and wines is on hand to round out the meal. A special Champagne brunch menu is rolled out on Sundays featuring a mix of sushi and sashimi alongside various American breakfast favorites.
