Teppanyaki Matsuoka: Round Two. Earlier entry: September 23rd.

Seafood Shines

Beef might seek to seize the spotlight at Matsuoka, but seafood refuses to play second fiddle.Teppanyaki Matsuoka_2


The lobster teppanyaki’s well worth trying, fresh and fleshy, RM68++ for a half-portion.Teppanyaki Matsuoka_3


Scallops sauteed with butter (RM25++) prove plenty juicy and pretty fairly priced.Teppanyaki Matsuoka_4


Also well-prepared: Takoyaki octopus dumpling balls, not as greasy as feared …Teppanyaki Matsuoka_5


… plus Osaka-style okonomiyaki, stuffed with squid, another good one by chef Shuji Hamagami.Teppanyaki Matsuoka_6


Quite like the omelet here too, despite the ketchup that’s typically a bane for egg recipes.Teppanyaki Matsuoka_7

What makes this triumphant is the satisfying layer beneath of chicken, avocado and tomatoes. Teppanyaki Matsuoka_8


Also interesting: Tofu “steak,” nice to nibble on as a starter or stomach-filler.Teppanyaki Matsuoka_9


Love this one: Sweet corn, taken off the cob and skewered for convenient eating.Teppanyaki Matsuoka_10


Dessert’s not spared from the teppanyaki treatment. The result: A fun version of French toast.Teppanyaki Matsuoka_11



To forget a night to remember, all that’s needed is a copious amount of sake …Teppanyaki Matsuoka_12


… complemented by sufficiently intoxicating shochu. Memories are, after all, overrated.
