I love Japanese food. You probably already know this if you’re a regular reader of my blog.
But, what you probably aren’t aware of is that apart from sushi, sashimi and shrimp tempura, Teppanyaki dishes are the ones I really look forward to having whenever I visit a Japanese restaurant.
For the benefit of those who don’t know what Teppanyaki is… Wikipedia’s definition is as follows:
“Teppanyaki is a style of Japanese cuisine that uses an iron griddle to cook food. The word teppanyaki is derived from teppan (鉄板), which means iron plate, and yaki (焼き), which means grilled, broiled, or pan-fried. In Japan, teppanyaki refers to dishes cooked using an iron plate, including steak, shrimp, okonomiyaki, yakisoba, and monjayaki.”
If you enjoy teppanyaki food as much as I do… or if you are simply curious to know what makes teppanyaki different from other dishes, well then, you’re in luck! There’s no better time to satiate your curious palate than now.
Osaka Ohsho is currently having a really awesome Teppanyaki Festival which is sure to delight all their customers.
