It's fair to say that teppanyaki tastes truly great. Specially cooked on a hot plate, this contemporary Japanese cuisine was first brought into being in 1945, as a foil for foreigners who looked with suspicion on more traditional dishes like Sushi.
Considering its mouth-watering magnificence, it's little wonder that it took off. A feat of true culinary artistry, a perfectly-cooked teppanyaki dish is guaranteed to delight. If you want to try the best of the best, here's where you can find some of the most exquisitely yummy examples on the Gold Coast.
1. The yummiest Yaki Udon from Kamikaze Teppanyaki
Serving up what is arguably some of the Gold Coast's finest teppanyaki, the inimitable Kamikaze Teppanyaki is where you should place an order when you're in the mood for fine dining and the freshest ingredients. Our all-time favourite pick from the menu is their fantastically tasty Yaki Udon: prawn and chicken served with teppan vegetables, miso soup, dipping sauces and steamed rice. It's a true treat for the taste buds and, with its generous portion sizes, it's guaranteed to leave you full to bursting.
2. The best Chicken Fried Rice from Arigatou Japanese Teppanyaki
If you're in the Broadbeach area, then it's Arigatou Japanese Teppanyaki that's bound to be your go-to option. Serving up dishes that are deliciously fresh and absolutely authentic, they have an extensive menu of choice, including their amazing Chicken Fried Rice. Blending teppanyaki style cooking with diced chicken, eggs and chopped vegetables, it tastes great and can also be ordered gluten-free to accommodate those with special dietary requirements.
3. The tastiest Teppanyaki Noodles from Soba Soba
