Teppanyaki is always a fun experience, but when you combine it with premium ingredients at a fair price? Sign me up!
Recently, I visited the Tsueng Kwan O neighbourhood for the first time to check out newly opened Teppanyaki Mihara. As I live in Western District, it’s further than I would usually go for a meal, but as my Foodie bio states (from four years ago!), I’m willing to travel for good food.
Teppanyaki Mihara is located at The Parkside complex, which is a short walk from TKO MTR station. It’s named after Chef Terufumi Mihara, a certified Master Chef from the Osaka School of Culinary Arts who specialises in “wa modern” Japanese fusion cuisine. The restaurant also takes great pride in the quality of its ingredients, offering Miyazaki A4 Wagyu beef (winner of the Wagyu Olympics for the past 15 years), Hokkaido “snow” pork, Awaji onions and Aomori garlic.
The restaurant is very polished. There are large communal teppanyaki tables and a few smaller tables away from the grill. We sat by the grill and enjoyed watching the chef whip up our food.
Here are some of the highlights from our meal:
The egg custard was silky-smooth.
The sliced sirloin with vegetables was a great, hearty bite. I loved the various textures and flavours here.
A tender piece of Hokkaido silver cod served on a hoba leaf was a standout.
Who can resist super-fresh tiger prawn pasta?
At this point, we were already convinced that Teppanyaki Mihara was great. But then came the time to try the Miyazaki A4 Wagyu sirloin. This was incredibly flavourful, indulgently fatty and cooked to our preferred rareness.
The accompanying garlic fried rice was the perfect texture and incredibly fragrant – one of the best I’ve ever had. I loved this so much I made a DIY Wagyu rice bowl to really mix all the flavours together.
Our meal ended with lovely matcha cake and milk pudding.
Teppanyaki Mihara is an excellent addition to Hong Kong’s food scene – TKO residents are lucky to have this spot! Dinner set menus start from $680 (with upgrade options). Lunch sets (from $218) are also great value. When planning your meal, keep in mind that they have over 100 sake, wine (with a focus on premium natural “lieu-dit” wine), shochu and spirit options.
