Best Teppanyaki in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Japanese food is one of the most celebrated cuisines around the world and we can presumptuously say that regular runners like sushi, sashimi and udon are only a slice of a cake. Teppanyaki is another masterpiece that is often overlooked but it’s absolutely gratifying. The name of the dish comes from the bonding of two words that describes the whole scenario – Teppan which means iron plate, whereas yaki means grilled, pan-fried or broiled. As interesting as it sounds, mélange of meats, seafood and vegetables are deftly done on the iron griddle with different sauces and ingredients.The best part? It’s usually visible to diners, offering a hypnotical appeal that sets you drooling helplessly. Keep reading to find out where in Penang!

    Mr Teppanyaki @ Gurney Plaza

    Located in the basement of Gurney Plaza, this little gem is burrowed between rows of food joints. Aptly named, teppanyaki is the name of the game here and one is sure to be spoilt with choices. Among the crowd pleasers are the stingray and squid which is fried on the griddle with ladles of spicy sauces and a handful of okras, and the beef teriyaki which is full of flavours and holds a tender texture. Patrons sit right in front of the open kitchen, keeping their eyes glued to the mouth-watering scene. Do opt for the set meal, where a mound of white rice and soup rounds up a satisfying meal.

    Sakae Sushi Teppanyaki @ Autocity

    Sakae Sushi Teppanyaki is relatively an institution for Japanese cuisine. Needless to say, nabbing an empty seat during peak hours and weekend is a challenge, despite the spacious seating area. Among the anchor-point here is the teppanyaki counter which is habitually full-of-life. Cup yourself before the large griddle and watch your dish being prepared with finesse. Aside from regular chicken and seafood options, one can savour grilled lobster with codfish roe and mayonnaise, or wedge your teppanyaki dish between pita bread with a handful of vegetables. Gather your like-minded buddies and squeal with excitement!

    Arashi Shabu Shabu

    This restaurant may be a new kid on the block yet has made quite a storm in the Japanese food scene in Penang. What reels you in at once is the interior that spells contemporary and comfort. The menu is fairly extensive but if you’re in the mood for teppanyaki, boy oh boy, you’re sure in safe hand. Choices include grilled saba fish, beef teriyaki, chicken, grilled tilapia, pork, salmon and squid. You could bring over the most distinctive diner out there, yet it’s impossible to pick the winner. Another winning point here is the sizzling griddle is brought over to the table with the dish of your choice, egg, fresh vegetables, corn, rice and miso soup, and you can choose to baste the whole ensemble with the original or spicy sauce for that additional oomph. It might sound like a close cousin to dakgalbi but it’s a whole different story here, in a good way.

    Queens Hall

    If varieties are what you are after, Queens Hall is the place to be. Stepping into to food mecca is sure to have you weak at knees. Among the stalls that always draws a beeline is the Teppanyaki, where a gargantuan griddle often catches the attention. Be it the denizens of the ocean or marinated meats, nothing leaves the scorching griddle without perfection, both in terms of flavour and portion. Apart from the freshness of the dish and astute combination of flavours, the amazing depth of smokiness is another reason to scuttle over for seconds or thirds. A mound of white rice completes your indulgence and do ask for chopped chillies for a spicy kick.

    Tips

    Limited seating space right in front of the stall. If you've grabbed a seat in other segments, you need to wait till your dish is ready.

    Things to expect

    During weekends, this place goes full-of-life
