Teppanyaki is a unique type of cuisine that offers full flavors paired with a one-of-a-kind dining experience in which your food is prepared with visual spectacle right at your table. If you have never indulged in teppanyaki cooking before, you may encounter some new flavors to excite your palate during your first meal prepared in this Japanese style. Here are some of the ingredients you might expect to see on your plate:
- Hibachi vegetables
The hibachi heating method exposes food to incredibly high temperatures that sear in flavor and preserve the natural goodness of the food. Vegetables prepared in the hibachi style are tender, slightly sweet, juicy on the inside, and charred on the outside. Your meal will come with an assortment of veggies traditional to Japanese cuisine grilled to perfection on the hibachi.
- Soy and teriyaki sauces
Sauces found in Japanese dishes tend to be highly concentrated with deeply sweet, salty, or tangy flavors that accent the main elements of the dish. Soy sauce is typically served as a condiment; this brewed concoction offers a salty bite to a variety of foods. Teriyaki may be incorporated into your food as it’s prepared so that the dish has a sweet undertone.
- Grilled meats and shellfish
The best elements of land and sea are combined on the teppanyaki grill with entrée options such as steak, chicken, lobster, shrimp, scallops, or a combination. The meat is cut into bite-sized pieces and cooked just to your liking with simple seasonings that accent the meat without overpowering its natural flavors.
