Teppanyaki in Singapore is actually not as common as it sounds. Not that it’s anything new, but somehow, there aren’t many restaurants specialising in Teppanyaki.
The restaurant area is pretty small, with only counter seats. You’ll get to see the chefs in action. The one on the right was performing some ‘acrobatic’ tricks while cooking, which was pretty entertaining.
For lunch, there’s a set which seemed pretty value for money. We ordered a chicken set and salmon set.
The salad was like the typical Japanese salad. Nothing special about it but nothing wrong with it too. Ditto to the miso soup. But at very least, these were better than Sakae Teppanyaki’s.
The fried rice was fried on the hot plate with a generous amount of condiments, which made it tasty. Not too bad. My dining partner was given a 2nd bowl of fried rice as the chef thought he looked hungry. The 2nd serving which was cooked in another batch didn’t taste the same! It was tastier. I guess you have to depend on your luck when having teppanyaki.
The salmon was cooked simmered in a aluminium foil ‘pot’ on the hot plate. It was simmered with that egg sauce as seen above. This was only half the portion as the chef kindly split it into 2 portions for the ease of sharing. There’s another piece of salmon under the egg sauce.
The chicken was served with a generous amount of crispy garlic. The chicken was flavourful and I found it to be better than the salmon.
I usually do not like bean sprouts as they are crunchy and tasteless but I managed to finish this plate of vegetables! It was very tasty and the bean sprouts were softened. It was better than Sakae Teppanyaki in my opinion.
Fresh fruits were served after our sinful meal.
Overall: not a bad place for teppanyaki, considering the reasonable price. I would be interested to try out Tatsu Sushi next door, next time!
