Express Teppanyaki Food Republic 1Utama

The other day, we found ourselves in Food Republic 1 Utama for a good dinner. Now I've been here a couple of times before, but this was the first time I found out there was actually a really big section located deep inside Food Republic where it is more serene with less noise and customers. Anyway this post will be the first of a series of food posts from Food Republic.

Express Teppanyaki Food Republic 1Utama
Some of the available choices

The 13,000sq ft food atrium can seat 550 at full capacity and has 15 tenants with an interesting mix of cuisines ranging from Malay, Chinese, Japanese, Middle Eastern, Western, Taiwanese and Malaysian. Our choice this time was the Express Teppanyaki. Going for the Chicken Chop Set, our meal was prepared in front of us by the cook as we watched on. Check out some of the photos I managed to capture of my Chicken Chop Set in the making.

Like any other Teppanyaki outlet, the food and meat was prepared in front of the diners. It was the same here, except probably slightly faster, hence the word Express Teppanyaki. Our rather tasty Chicken Chop Set was prepared in less than 10 minutes, which came with vegetables, the mandatory beansprouts, soup, a bowl of rice and of course the chicken chop itself.

On this rare occasion, I liked the vegetables that came with this Teppanyaki Set

The chicken as expected came out really tender, and doused with the sweet sourish spicy sauce, it tasted good. Express Teppanyaki presented the dish on this aluminium foils placed on the hot cooking area, ensuring the food never cools down. Usually when I have Teppanyaki at other food outlets, I'm not very fond of the vegetables, but here the way they made the green vegetables got me wanting for more.

Overall, I pretty much liked the Chicken Chop Set that evening. Tasty enough, and prepared with enough effort to make it look presentable and nice. I'm sure most of you have been to Food Republic in 1 Utama before, but do try out some of their different stalls available. There will be more food posts from Food Republic coming up, so do look out for it when it does.
