What is Teppanyaki and Why Do You Need to try it?

Teppanyaki (鉄板焼き, teppan-yaki) is a Japanese cooking style that utilizes an iron griddle to cook food. Literally translated, “teppan” means iron plate, and “yaki” refers to grilling, or pan-frying.

Picture this: a glistening iron griddle, flames dancing like miniature dragons, and the rhythmic clanging of spatulas as a skilled chef transforms fresh ingredients into culinary masterpieces right before your eyes. This, my friends, is the magic of teppanyaki, an experience that’s more than just a meal – it’s a front-row seat to culinary theater. Something you can experience right here in cape Town.

But what exactly is teppanyaki?

In simple terms, it’s a Japanese cooking style that utilizes a flat, iron griddle heated to blazing temperatures. The word itself comes from “teppan,” meaning “iron plate,” and “yaki,” meaning “grilled, or fried.” So, teppanyaki is essentially the art of grilling and sizzling on a hot iron surface.
