Everyone loves Teppanyaki, perhaps the most theatrical of cuisine styles. You see your food prepared in front of you — chopped and cooked, flipped and flung about — and then you get to devour it. It's wow meets yum.
It's also the reason to head to the newest restaurant in the Emporium complex, Saiko Teppanyaki. With head chef Stanley Lee's stylised preparation, presentation and performance as sizzling as the meals served, as fine-tuned over the past ten years, the teppan grill plates aren't the only things turning the temperature up in this black-clad hotspot.
When you're not watching, jaw agape, as utensils and ingredients spin and swirl through the air, you'll be feasting on your choice of meal. Seasoned Teppanyaki fans will already know the drill: pick a filling, including six types of meat and nine kinds of seafood, select from one of seven sauces, and then wait for the culinary whirlwind. Starting with Teppanyaki fried rice is always a treat for the eyes and the stomach, particularly if you're keen on a bit of interactivity. Our tip: if you're dining in pairs, you might want to peruse the Super Saiko for Two menu — yes, it really is twice the fun.
