Teppanyaki Basics

Basics of Teppan Teppanyaki is a style of Japanese cooking used in many Japanese restaurants in America. You’ve probably encountered it if you’ve gone out for Japanese food. Teppanyaki cooking is characterized by the use of fresh ingredients and very light seasoning that is meant to enhance the natural flavor of its ingredients. The primary seasonings used are salt, pepper, soy sauce, wine, vinegar, and garlic.

Most Japanese restaurants that specialize in Tappan dining prepare your food on a hibachi grill right in front of you. This is what makes the Japanese dining experience so fun and unique. As the chef cooks the food at a high heat and with a minimal amount of oil, teppanyaki-style Japanese food is very low fat and healthy. Having the food cooked right in front of you also makes it easy to have your ingredients cooked to your specifications.
