A tantalizing teppan tour…

Tonight I had the distinct pleasure and joy of dining at my favorite teppanyaki restaurant named Ichibiri, and my was it a feast both for the eyes and my now-humbled stomach.  For those of you who don’t know what teppanyaki is, it’s a Japanese method of combining dining with entertainment.  8 guests sit around an elevated table-top grill, called a teppan grill, and watch as their veggies, rice, meat, and fish are grilled to perfection by a sometimes dangerous, though always exciting chef.

Since the teppanyaki experience is so photogenic, I thought I would keep this post brief and cut right to the good stuff: the photos.  Above is a photo of the classic onion-ring-volcano, and trust me there are quite a few more golden shots where that came from.

You can find the full photo tour of the visually compelling experience in my photo gallery, or by clicking here.  Enjoy!
