Teppanyaki Table | How To Cook Japanese Teppanyaki?

Teppanyaki is a Japanese style cooking food; "teppan" refers to electric teppanyaki grill or griddle used for cooking, and "yaki" means barbecue. There are no fixed rules for making teppanyaki, but the meals should be cooked around the teppanyaki table and shared together. Put the meat, vegetables, sauces and condiments on the table, and each person chooses, cooks and decorates his own dishes.
