Here’s a little backstory about the Japanese’s famous Teppanyaki – the name was coined from the word ‘’Teppan’’ which means iron plate, and ‘’Yaki’’ which suggests cooking over direct heat. The dish was first made famous by chef Shigeji Fujiko back in 1945. Fast forward to decades later, this dish is now more prominent than ever, and you can easily find it in Singapore.

It is well-loved by almost every ethnicity, not just the Japanese. Loyal fans of this special dish are often mesmerized by the way they were cooked – the theatrical movements by diners and chefs alike, the incredible fire show, and of course the texture and taste of it.

In Singapore, most Teppanyaki chefs have increased the level of “performance’’ when cooking the curated dishes by customizing the ingredients, adding more stunts and executing 101 other antics like throwing the eggs up in the air and catching it directly using the utensils. Interested? You should be. Join the Teppanyaki hype with Glitz’s best Teppanyaki restaurants in Singapore!
