Teppanyaki now open in Comstock Park

Local residents have been patiently waiting for the opening of the Teppanyaki  Grill & Buffet   located in the former Fire Mountain building, 3725 Alpine Ave. NW, Comstock Park.  They have to wait no longer.  While a "grand opening" advertising campaign may be in the works for a future date, the company has officially opened its doors to customers.  The entire inside looks new and clean, the staff is friendly, the food plentiful and tasty and the price very reasonable.  Teppanyaki's menu has a sushi, seafood and steak buffet with over 250 items, along with a la carte sushi, salads, soups, Asian favorites and dessert. Teppanyaki is a great addition to the restaurants in our neighborhood.Area manager  Jimmy Cheng and some of the friendly staff

Think TEPPANYAKI

Per Wikopedia:

Teppanyaki (鉄板焼き teppan-yaki) 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.[1] With a solid griddle type cook surface, the teppanyaki is more suitable for smaller ingredients, such as rice, egg, and finely chopped vegetables.
