Sakura Teppanyaki - Surabaya

Teppanyaki With a Chinese Twist

Sakura Teppanyaki Surabaya

Seingat saya dahulu pernah ada resto tepanyaki serupa di Tunjungan Plasa II, menyajikan makanan cepat saji seperti Nasi Goreng, Kwetiauw dan sejenisnya dengan proses masak dengan tepanyaki.
Setelah bertahun-tahun tutup, sekarang ada tempat sejenis yang dibuka di East Coast mall yang berselebahan dengan Food Festival.


For those of you accustomed with the authentic Japanese Tepanyaki, you might be taken a back by this particular restaurant. Unlike your regular Tepanyaki joint, this one also serves some simple Chinese fare such as fried noodle, fried rice, and flat noodle / kwetiaw, which is similar to Pad Thai.
Long ago there were similar place selling the same item at Tunjungan Plasa. It was quite popular back then, I don't really know why they ended up being closed.

Satu hal yang sedikit berbeda di resto ini adalah ditambahnya menu-menu jepang yang lebih otentik seperti Udon, Tempura dan Donburi. Walau demikian, yang paling laris selama saya berkunjung ke sini adalah mie, nasi goreng dan sejenisnya. Untuk yang ingin pengalaman Tepanyaki khas Jepang yang otentik, ada pula alternatifnya di Edamame - Grand City


Though similarly named to the Teppanyaki which I frequented at Tunjungan Plasa mall, this place have their own take, they also serves some rather authentic Japanese cuisine such as Udon, Tempura and Donburi. Despite that though, the bulge of the menu that was ordered while I was here, were the Noodles and Fried Rice. For those of you seeking a Teppanyaki closer to the Japanese original, you can visit this page : Edamame - Grand City

Dari kesemua makanan yang saya coba kali ini, rasanya biasa, tidak ada yang spesial, tapi juga tidak buruk. Rasa mie gorengnya tidak ada bedanya dengan yang dimasak di resto sebelah, malah saya merasa sedikit lebih lezat yang di resto House of Wok
Harga mie di bawah ini mendekati Rp 40.000, sedikit mahal untuk menu Mie Goreng biasa, minimal rasanya persis dengan mie goreng standard. Kemungkinan besar biaya itu lebih untuk menikmati pengalaman masak Teppanyaki yang memang cukup menarik.


The food here are okay, though I don't think there's any different than the regular noodle and fried rice cooked in the next door Chinese restaurants. To be honest I kinda like the noodle on the House of Wok which is located very near.
The price is close to Rp 40.000 for the noodle bellow, which is quite steep for a regular Fried Noodle, which is what it tasted like. I guess the bulk of the price might have to do with the Teppanyaki cooking process, which is quite amusing.

Ketika ke sini sih, tempatnya cukup ramai, bisa jadi karena memang populer atau masih banyak yang penasaran dan ingin mencoba, seperti saya sendiri.
Tempat ini termasuk nanggung untuk selera saya, Tepanyaki jg bukan yang otentik, masakan Cina juga ngga ada yang spesial.
Bakal lebih puas menikmati mie resto Cina di spesialisnya, seperti Noodle House, dan untuk makanan Jepang ke Edamame, Sushi Hana, atau sekalian di Kizahashi. Sakura Teppanyaki lebih cocok untuk yang memang tidak suka dengan rasa masakan Jepang, tapi ingin mendapatkan nuansa resto Teppanyaki.


Upon visiting the eatery, I saw the place was quite packed. Either people really like the place, or lots of people wanting to try the food for the first time, such was my case.
In my view, the place seems to be confused, it's neither authentic Japanese nor Chinese cuisine eatery.
I'd have more pleasing experience having a noodle in Noodle House, or savoring Japanese Cuisine in restaurants that's caters a more authentic experience, such as Edamame, Sushi Hana, or the Kizahashi.
But if you really want to try a mix up of both, this is the place to go.
