South Texas Japanese restaurant recipe

Hi Everybody,
If you have ever eaten In McAllen, Texas you may have dined at a Hibachi grill named, SHOGUN, and having grown up in this area I ate there many times. Now that I have my own kitchen I was wondering if anyone had any idea what their recipe for the suace they put on the Vegetables could be.

I have prepared this dish for myself many times, using soy sauce and dry mustard, but it always seems to lack something. Could this be Oyster Sauce, ginger, MSG even, or if any one had any ideas that would be great, and i will try. I am an adventrous eater and will let you know about how it turned out.

  1. A couple suggestions to try singly or in some combination with soy sauce:
    Fish Sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, freshly zested ginger and a bit of corn starch as a thickening agent. A little bit of sugar can help round out the flavors. Good luck.

    1. what about trying some oyster flavor sauce? if it was spicy, maybe try some chile oil. i'm in mcallen, but haven't been to that restaurant. if i go, i'll give it a taste and see what i can come up with!
