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, the dishes are now more prominent than ever.
It is well-loved by almost every ethnicity, not just the Japanese. Loyal fan-base of this special food are often mesmerized by the way they were cooked—the theatrical movement by diners and chefs alike, the sounds of the sizzles, 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.
