Best Japanese Teppanyaki In Holland At IJmuiden's Harbor
Treating my family to a quality teppanyaki experience at Minato Mirai, the best Japanese restaurant in my hometown IJmuiden, where they made us eat our food in mid-air.
I wanted to surprise my family today so I took them to a Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant. It was a new experience for my entire family thus I was hoping they would like it.
The restaurant is called Minato Mirai and is located in the fishing harbor of IJmuiden. The food was delicious and was well prepared. Top quality place I would definitely go back to.
Teppanyaki (鉄板焼き) is a style of Japanese cuisine that uses an iron griddle to cook food.
The word teppanyaki is derived from teppan (鉄板), which means iron plate, and yaki (焼き), which means grilled, broiled or pan-fried. In Japan, teppanyaki refers to dishes cooked using an iron plate, including steak, shrimp, okonomiyaki, yakisoba, and monjayaki. Modern teppanyaki grills are typically propane-heated flat surface grills, and are widely used to cook food in front of guests at restaurants.
Teppanyaki grills are commonly confused with the hibachi barbecue grill, which has a charcoal or gas flame and is made with an open grate design. With a solid griddle type cook surface, the teppanyaki is more suitable for smaller ingredients, such as rice, egg, and finely chopped vegetables.
