Teppan Bar Q – Scintillating Teppanyaki Experience [MEDIA INVITE]

Teppan Bar Q

Teppanyaki is a style of Japanese cooking using iron griddle. Having Teppanyaki is not just about the food, it is about the experience being entertained by Teppanyaki Master Chef. Seating in front of the iron griddle, looking straight at the Chef preparing your food, is one of the most memorable Chef's table experience you can have.

The Centre Stage

Teppan Bar Q by Torikin is originated from Hakata, also known as the birth place of Ramen. In Hakata, Teppan Bar Q has many sister restaurants specialising in different type of Japanese cuisine. To ensure Teppan Bar Q quality remain up to standard, Chef Ishida visits Singapore regularly and we have the pleasure to taste his cooking that night.

The Wall Decor

Squid with Pesto ($12) kick start the evening. Serve in small plate like Japanese version of Tapas. Springy yet succulent squid, served with creamy mild pesto sauce. The salty and sour taste of the olives provided contrasting flavour in this dish. Hidden under the squid is grilled potatoes to add starch or carbo to this dish. A good start to the meal.

Tonpei Yaki ($17). Tonpei Yaki is Japanese omelet filled with cabbage and pork. It is bold combination of sweet and savoury, topped with bonito flakes. Though the fillings are juicy and succulent, the sauce just covered the original taste of the ingredients. An interesting dish, but not to my liking.

Seafood Tepanyaki ($54). This platter consist of Tiger Prawn with Balsamic Sauce, Hokkaido Scallops and Salmon Teriyaki. The teppan seared the exterior of the seafood nicely and sealed all the juicies internally. A touch of pesto and balsamic vinegar perfectly complemented this dish, while allowing the freshness and natural taste of the seafood to shine. A good platter and a must try dish here.

Sirloin Steak Teppanyaki - 200 gram ($30). Juicy, succulent sirloin steak cooked to medium rare with crisp exterior. Suitable for those who prefer something more meaty beef with less marbling. The steak is served with multiple condiments such as soy sauce, homemade ginger sauce, homemade spicy sauce, dijon mustard, fried garlic and wasabi. Definitely a lot of choices to savour this steak. I can't imagine how the A4 Mizayaki Kuroge Wagyu Steak ($78) will taste like. Yum Yum.

The staple dish to end the night is none other than Garlic Fried Rice ($6) and Miso Soup ($3). A perfect ending to the meal here. The fried garlic is aromatic and sweet, which you can taste in each bite of the fried rice. The absent of any bitterness from a burned fried garlic, truly showcase the Master skills of the Chef Ishida. The miso soup helps to cleanse your palate after all the meal. I just wish there is more of those fried rice.

The decor of Teppan Bar Q is very simple, more towards functionality. The walls are filled with Japanese drawings. There are two iron griddles at the centre stage, where the chef will do the cooking. The counter top table can seat up to 16 pax plus a seating for another 10 pax. Outdoor, it can seat about 20 pax more. Therefore reservations are highly recommended. The sake menu here are extensive, you should definitely have it with your food.

Overall, Teppan Bar Q definitely served a scintillating and delicious teppanyaki. The ingredients used are fresh and the skill of the chef is just top notch. If you are looking for an unforgettable Teppanyaki experience, drop by at Teppan Bar Q. Kanpai!! Cheers!!
