Teppanyaki Tales

Went out to dinner on Friday night in lieu of Frenchie's birthday.

Teppanyaki, which is where dishes are cooked using a teppan (iron plate) at the centre of your table. Our chef had a fabulous sense of humour and was witty too. He was pretty handy with juggling cutlery and food around ;)

I've heard tales of teppanyaki chefs who have pretty cool tricks up their sleeves, for example one in New York who at the end of the meal had a flaming "thank you" emblazoned on the teppan. We got a flaming onion birthday cake for Frenchie, and yeah we were impressed.






I hope everyone has a fabulous week; by the time you read this, I will be on a flight. I will be awol from the blogosphere for a week as I'll be in Melbourne on a course (and yes, I will spend the weekend shopping my heart away :)

See you guys in a week!

Oh, I love teppanyaki! It really looks delicious. And you look so pretty. I'm so so jealous of your hair. It looks so pretty, curly and healthy (my hair is pretty dead). I wish my hair was like that again. Maybe some day. But you also look amazing for the rest ^^

You look wicked! Love your tank and shoes! Dinner looks delish mm. Have fun in Melbourne! xx

To me, teppanyaki tastes the same everywhere I go. Haha. But I'm no connoisseur of Japanese food even though I am Japanese. It's really bad because people assume I know what they're talking about and I really don't. Haha. Like today this lady at work was telling me what she made for dinner (miso soup) and what she put in it -- she said Japanese words and I was like, "huh???" I felt dumb!

Please check it.


Anika said...

Thanks for the lovely comments, folks!

Deanna, uber flattered haha ;)

Eden, I actually worry that my clothes are too punk-rock sometimes. I tried to focus on a feminine, and cute, LBD by Alice McCall in a shop in Melb but still picked the feather stole...ahh, well, I love it so I might as well :)

Eveline, thanks heaps and welcome to the blog.

Katlin, I'm not going to judge...I'm bad too...but on a side note...I LOVE miso soup. Yum! :D

The Seeker, thank you so chuffed!
