Teppanyaki Brothers

Teppanyaki (鉄板焼き) is a Japanese cuisine style that uses an iron griddle to make dishes. This word (sounds like “yucky” if you noticed but it’s not yucky, I promise) is derived from teppan (鉄板), which means iron plate, and yaki (焼き), which means grilled, broiled, or pan-fried. 

This is one of those dates that we planned a thousand years ago that eventually happened one sunny day. We decided to meet at Forever 21, SM Aura. At first, we did some window shopping before we roam around. The window shopping was followed by minimal buying because the two of us ended lining up the counter.

Lunch time brought us to 4th Floor. Foods paraded before our hungry eyes and you know that it’s quite amusingly frantic to be in that place where everything’s yummy. “Where do you want to eat?”, Tess asked. “Anywhere”. Well, I think we should create a restaurant named after that  famous Filipino reply. That habit everytime I’m asked where to feed my starving belly makes me want to rally (in a non-violent way). Fortunately, the sweetest smell pursued our nostrils and off we went to Teppanyaki Brothers. We ordered  Chicken plus Salmon & Dory Sets. They’re perfect for the four of us. Chop sticks were the best utensils except for Tin and Beth who boldly concluded that spoon and fork will never be traded in their dining agenda.

We were seated fronting an outburst of smoke. Yes, a fog of umami scent and unlimited sprinkle of oil expressed the chef’s freedom to entertain us with his cooking skills. And as we continue to eat, we shared diverse stories that made us laugh and laugh and laugh. And you know when you laugh with your friends, some people just can’t contain that kind of happiness. So we laughed all the more.♥
