Teppanyaki 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.
Whilst it is a Japanese form of cooking, it is exceedingly popular in China as people usually book large tables for groups and business parties. You have a chef per table, who cooks on the iron plate in front of your eyes, with different sauces. Food is freshly cooked, flavourful and simple with uses of basic ingredients such as Kirin and Soya Sauce.
We would do this for birthdays or group nights out as for one set fee (100-150YY, Roughly £10-15) it is all you can eat and drink for as long as you want in a private room, with no hiring fee. We get really drunk on Sake, Especially playing the Sake Bomb Game:
SAKE BOMB DRINKING GAME
When in a Japanese Restaurant, Purchase cups of beer each, and get a jug of cold Sake (if you are drinking Sake neat, it better warm), place it like the image with the Sake sitting on top and the beer underneath, at the same time everyone should shout SAKE! and bash the table (one arm on one side of the cup other arm on the other) The small sake shot should fall into the beer and you should chug it till its gone
WARNING! You Will get drunk!
