Teppanyaki Festival at Osaka Ohsho!

I’ve always loved Teppanyaki. We used to have a friend who owned a Teppanyaki table at their home in Tagaytay & they would invite us to eat with them from time to time. We would chip in for marketing & they would cook an assortment of meat, seafood, and the yummiest fried rice table top, al fresco. The aroma mixed with pine scent & combined with the cool tagaytay air can whet anyone’s appetite, that’s for sure.  Pure bliss for me, even now I drool at the mere thought.

One day, I would like to own a teppanyaki table & maybe then and only then will I want to learn the basics of cooking mean teppan dishes. It looks so easy! You just need some muscle (probably).

Teppanyaki (鉄板焼き teppan-yaki) 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.

Modern teppanyaki grills are typically propane-heated flat surface grills and are widely used to cook food in front of guests at restaurants. Teppanyaki grills are commonly confused with the hibachi barbecue grill, which has a charcoal or gas flame and is made with an open grate design. With a solid griddle type cook surface, the teppanyaki is more suitable for smaller ingredients, such as rice, egg, and finely chopped vegetables.

For now, I would just have to be content cooking on my laptop in SIMS. That, and patronize restos with teppanyaki tables -which can be quite expensive.

Apart from the Walking Dead TV series, I am crazy in love with SIMS. The kids can leave me in the morning & find me in the afternoon still at it. Making houses & decorating, doing chores & finishing goals, making friends & woo-hoos (Yes even in Sim City my love life with Kap is blooming!). It’s quite addicting I tell you. The fun part is that all the skills I don’t have in real life, I can easily learn & apply in SIMS, lels. Like COOKING! ;P

Thank goodness for affordable teppanyaki dishes, NEW at Osaka Ohsho! I was so happy when the Relish Group’s main man BOBBY VALLAR invited Kap & me to try the new Teppanyaki dishes last week. It takes time & effort to go to Megamall but when it’s for restos that we really love (far & few in between like Fireside, Linguini Fini, Tuan Tuan, and of course Osaka Ohsho), then Kap & I go. No second thoughts about it.
