If you’re not familiar with Japanese Hibachi or Teppanyaki, try to imagine sitting around a large, hot grill where a chef is standing in the center, cooking a dinner made up of meat or seafood, fresh vegetables, and rice. While he cooks he is entertaining the table and cracking jokes. It’s really entertaining and the food is very delicious! Often, the term hibachi and teppanyaki can be used interchangeably, but traditionally hibachi is cooked on a barbecue type grill with a charcoal or gas flame and teppanyaki is cooked on a solid griddle type cook surface.
