Teppan Grill and Sushi Bar is one of Chennai’s best Japanese restaurants and they have recently introduced a Set Meal menu. This menu is perfect for those who are new to Japanese cuisine and is a good choice for lovers of the cuisine as it is has all the flavours you associate with Japan. We got to try the delicious 6- course menu and here are the details.
Tori Sarada. This is a rich blend of grilled chicken, iceberg lettuce and carrots with a spicy mayo and topped with bits fried Tempura batter and sesame seeds. A perfect medley of crisp clean and crunchy textures.
Tori Nambanzuke. Japanese style chicken wings, marinated with ginger, soya sauce and sesame seeds, fried and served with Tonkatsu sauce. Tonkatsu is a soy and tomato based dipping sauce. The chicken full of flavour and the sauce has the right amount of salty and sweet.
Naruto Maki. One person gets four pieces of this delicious sushi roll. It is Sea bass fried and rolled with onion, tongarahi, vinegared sushi rice, nori and tempura crunch bits. Served along with some soya sauce and fiery wasabi. This one was just perfect beyond words.
Miso Soup is a delicate traditional soup made with fermented soybean paste (miso), tofu and spring onions. This course helps you soothe the stomach and the taste buds.
For the main, you get a choice between Chicken, Beef tenderloin or Prawn and you can choose any two paired with a sauce of your choice. Hoisin, Oyster, Butter Garlic or Soy. The meats are grilled live in front of you on the Teppanyaki grill. It is fascinating to watch the highly trained chef Jed Ursals skills on the grill.
Tori Yakimeshi is a Japanese style chicken and egg fried rice. The Jacki Chan of Teppanyaki also makes this expertly and entertainingly on the grill. The flavours of the fried rice are subtle so that it can soak up the delicious sauces from the meat dishes.
Teppan has a large selection of Desserts to choose from at their dessert counter and for the set meal, you can pick any three. No recommendations for this one because they are all fantastic!
The set meal is available in a Vegetarian option also that will be just as spectacular and is on for Lunch and Dinner.
