This week it was my eldest son’s birthday, we dropped the little ones off at their nanny’s and went out for a ‘grown-up’ meal.
The place of choice was Myako Teppanyaki where the food is cooked right in front of you. It was really entertaining evening, the waiter told us everything he was doing, made jokes, played music with his cooking tools and even managed a few games with the guests around the table, like egg shell golf. Of course, he also set the cooking area alight which is what you can see in my photo. Whoosh, right in front of us, at least three times.
The food was fresh, tasty and with very little additions. Here you can see the chef cooking up our fish dishes including the lobster shells which he was calling baby crocodiles.
It was good watching him cook and my mouth was watering to get stuck in.
Dessert was dessert, you didn’t get a choice. Normally, while out, I’d go for the most decadent of desserts, with plenty of chocolate. However, this ice cream with fruit and mango sauce was a perfect way to end the meal, and it left me happy as well as knowing I’d not just added a couple of inches to my waistline.
