Following the formula of his other restaurants, Teppanyaki Hamburg does comfort food well, with options aplenty to suit different tastes.

To ensure quality, prime US beef patties are freshly ground and formed to order before being seared on a teppanyaki grill and served on sizzling hotplates.

Diners can also customise their meal with a delectable spread of osozai (Japanese side dishes). The rotating line-up features 20 items daily, including cha soba salad, simmered pumpkin, and pickled cabbage.

If you’re a cheese lover, the choice is a no-brainer.
