Japanese cuisine is world-famous and extensive, ranging from the classic sashimi and sushi to shabu shabu and okonomiyaki. Of course, there’s also teppanyaki, which is said to have originated from Japan in 1945. Today, teppanyaki has also become a culinary performance of sorts, from juggling eggs with a spatula to impressive fire shows, all to entertain and impress diners.
