Within a few days of reviewing the 2 months old Teppanyaki Restaurant, I was invited again for the second time.This time, Chef Fancy was around to entertain me.

As previously mentioned, I felt like this Teppanyaki Restaurant is my extended family thus I wouldn’t mind visiting it again. I arrived on a Friday nite around 8pm. And boy!…the place was so packed! And I was even surprised when I was told that these people are the second batch of customers.

Well, since Chef Fancy was here to entertain me, let the show begin!

I was in admist a group of pretty ladies watching in awe as Chef Fancy makes his “fancy” teppanyaki moves with a chorus clangs of the apparatus flipping.Chef Fancy was juggling confidently while at the same time, whipping up some delicious menu for me.

In betweens, he did explain in depth about Teppanyaki and various versions in Asia. His 13 years experience did not teach him these fancy moves but instead, he taught himself these moves as he was busy watching a bartender whipping up drinks for his customers in his own unique way. And then, EUREKA! He decided to find out more and decided to partner his chef skills with these entertaining skills for his resume. He said that he wants his showmanship to reveal a part of his sensitiveness-Cooking from the heart.
I applaud his passion in demonstrating his skills to us “LIVE”..cos no matter how prepared or trained you are, you can never be sure of the type of audience that you will be dealing with. And it’s always nerve wrecking to perform LIVE but Chef is very cool… in fact, he has a knack of breaking us up into laughters and guffaws intermittently. Very entertaining!
First menu….Salmon,chicken,scallops and vegetables…not forgetting my GIANT rootbeer FLOAT!
They served me 2 methods of cooking Salmon on the teppan. One is stewed and the other is grilled.
The grilled salmon is deliciously tasty and the stewed salmon is slightly sweet. I love both salmon!
This grilled chicken is different than my favourite Teriyaki chicken (served in previous visit). It is tender and juicy. Nice!
Within minutes, ta-da! My table is filled with sauteed beef (medium), chap chye (Japanese version ) , Garoupa 3 rasa (3 taste) , potato salad and Garlic Rice…
I like the beef, potato salad,warm miso soup and the Garouper. The chap chye vegetables are very interesting with the addition of dashi water in its recipe and slices of seaweed makes it very Japaneesy.The potato salad suit me well. I like its subtleness. The Garouper is fried crispily and then endowed in a sauce that are rich in sweet ,sourish thick Thai sauce. Like the sambal sting ray(previous visit),there is a certain fragrance in the sambal that intrigued me.
Second helping of grilled Salmon…ooh lala!
Another favourite is Tempura. I like its light crispyness batter.The dip that came with it is warm and subtle. My favourite has to be the sweet potato tempura.
