What does Teppanyaki means?
Teppanyaki is a style of Japanese cuisine that uses an iron griddle to cook food. The word teppanyaki is derived from teppan, which means iron plate, and yaki, which means grilled, broiled, or pan-fried.
We are so glad to have visted one of Karama’s hidden gem, the FarEast Seafood Market. After reading good reviews from Tripadvisor and Zomato we decided to give it a go.
The setting of the restaurant is a bit similar to Shogun Restaurant in Deira.
One thing that impresses me is the glass floor made of water tank with live fish inside. That’s why it’s a bit darker when you get in so to make the aquarium more noticeable. Pretty cool huh?
As we settled to our chair, our lovely chef named, Julius greeted us.
He then starts to prepare our first dish. Our appetizer is a stir-fry vegetables with fish and shrimp and trust me the smell is so delicious I started getting full just by smelling it.
We had so much fun watching chef Julius as he showcases his talent and at the same time I am mentally taking note of the ingredients he used. Perhaps I could apply it in my future cooking.
After the appetizer, we ordered for a bowl of fried rice and chiken then followed by grilled beef.
I am not a fan of medium rare beef but I love the way he cooked it. The meat is so tender and soft with the soy and the rest of the ingredients absorbed perfectly.
For 80 dirhams you will enjoy an all-you-can-eat deal with:
- Soups (Tom Yam soup / CHinese chicken sweet and sour)
- Drinks (non-alcoholic)
- Main Course
- Dessert mixed fruit platter
I know we are suppose to be eating seafod menu as what the restaurant implies but it has been a good choice to try Teppanyaki as their other option. I can say that this is the best Teppanyaki I have tried.
I promise chef Julius that we will come back and will blog about it. He was genuinely pleased and happy.
