Never Too Much Food Rating: 8.5 / 10
If you are looking for a place where you can have both, great food and fun, head to Sapporo Teppanyaki.
Last Friday we had our work Christmas do and instead of a traditional, quiet dinner, we went for the Christmas party at Sapporo Teppanyaki. I have never been before and love Asian cuisine, so I was really excited.
This years Christmas menu looks really tempting. I was absolutely sure with my choice for main, but would be happier if I could give up on dessert and have at least 3 starters instead. The choice of starters was amazing!
As a starter I chose the SHAKE ABURI NIGIRI (Salmon nigiri bruleed and topped with salmon row, flying fish roe, and black caviar) – if you love sushi, this is the starter to go for. I was sooo excited that I have eaten one, before I took a photo! The rice was perfect, as the rest of it. I didn’t feel like it added much to the dish to brulee the salmon, but it was the best dish of the night. Wish I could have been eating these all night!
Before the main there was time for some fun and tricks. The chefs were great, we had so much fun and although catching fried potato chips in a Japanese restaurant is a bit surprising (why don’t they throw sushi rolls?! Maybe because I would catch even those that were for other people at the table!), we had a great laugh. I even forgot that I combined delicious salmon nigiri with potato chips 🙂
My choice for main was the rack of lamb with Japanese 7 spices. It was delicious, with some fried rice and vegetables. I ordered medium…and they were nicely pink. Really admire the chefs to entertain us and remember at the same time, how we all wanted the meat to be cooked.
For a dessert I had the cheesecake… It was lovely, still wish I could have had the starter again tho…haha 🙂
Overall, it was a great night, it’s a perfect place for a work do or if you want to have fun with friends! The food was good, the Christmas menu was a little bit of a fusion, definitely not purely Japanese, but everything was tasty and together with the chefs and their jokes it makes for an amazing and entertaining night!
I’ll definitely be back for sushi!!!!!!!!
