Teppanyaki Mihara Goten, the brainchild of renowned chef Terufumi Mihara, has opened in Hong Kong’s Causeway Bay.
As the winter months approach, you might be looking for cuisine that keeps the body and soul warm and soothed. Teppanyaki Vihara Goten – TMG for short – promises to usher diners into a world where the rich heritage of kappo cuisine meets the vibrant spectacle of teppanyaki, which is just fine with us.
As a young chef, Goten explored various facets of Japanese cuisine, from perfecting pastries to crafting dishes for izakayas and yakitoris, but it was kappo cuisine’s inherent versatility, where dishes are crafted and plated right before the diner, that enthralled him.
As Chef Mihara moved up the career ladder, he also became fascinated with the art of teppanyaki, where the teppan grill wasn’t just a tool but a stage, and the act of cooking transformed into an enthralling performance.
Combining the spirit of kappo – its intimacy, responsiveness, and improvisation – and the action of the teppan. the new eatery instills the chef’s “Wa Modern” philosophy, a blend of time-tested traditions and fresh, modern touches that was first put to test at the chef’s own Teppanyaki Mihara in Tseung Kwan O, where the teppan became an extension of the chef’s counter, allowing diners to witness the raw energy of flames, the sizzle of ingredients, and the skill of his hands.
Its lavish rebirth as Teppanyaki Mihara Goten (TMG) promises to be a “palace” where age-old traditions meet modern flair and where Mihara’s vision comes alive: kappo cuisine, reimagined on the teppan, forging a path that’s uniquely, unforgettably his.
Drawing inspiration from his extensive culinary journey that has spanned continents and cultures – from Japan, Italy, the US, and Hong Kong, chef Mihara infuses TMG’s offerings with global sensibilities.
Must-try dishes include Grilled King Crab Crepe; Broiled Ezo Abalone with Hokkaido Sea Urchin; Grilled Rockfish with Clam Butter Sauce; A4 Miyazaki Wagyu Beef Roll; and A5 Kumamoto Wagyu Beef Tenderloin, all of which are sure to keep the chills at bay.
