Teppan Okochi in Rockwell: An Authentic Teppanyaki Experience
Teppan Okochi in Rockwell prides itself with its teppanyaki – a style of Japanese cuisine where food is cooked on an iron griddle.
This restaurant, which serves only authentic Japanese eats, offers a wide variety of food ranging from okonomiyaki to unagi or eels. This branch of Teppan Okochi is also the sole branch that offers pasta; a rare sight in most Japanese restaurants.
Teppan Okochi also features a sushi counter, where, like the Teppanyaki counter, you can watch chefs skillfully prepare the dish in front of your eyes. They also have a bar which carries a variety of wines and sake that you can match with your meals.
The restaurant has three U-shaped counter seats that surround the Teppanyaki counter. This way, it’s more spacious and diners can witness master chefs prepare various dishes.
Rockwell’s Teppan Okochi is the only branch to feature pasta dishes, hence, their pasta is a treat! Consider trying their Teppan Cooked Authentic Napolitan (Php 380). Napolitan is a Japanese-style pasta that’s tomato-based and sauteed with ham. It’s the ideal dish if you’re looking for that authentic tomato-sauce taste with a Japanese touch.
