With just two main items on the menu, Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashi Keisuke Bettei (woooo what a mouthful), as their name suggest, specialises in juicy Japanese hamburg steak. Skipping the regular Keisuke Prime Beef Hamburg Set for their diet-destroying triple cheese version ($20.80), the patty was stuffed with a savoury blend of cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan. Warm and gooey, the familiar mix of cheese paired perfectly with the moist as well as sweet onion minced patty. And each sizzling hot plate was also accompanied by a crisp Ebi Furai, Tofu with Bonito Flakes, Fried Beancurd (Aburaage), a pitcher for the sauce of your choice (Keisuke Original Sauce) and small bed of beansprouts.

Oozy molten cheese core aside, the spread of osozai (Japanese side dishes) was a hit. Cutting a bit of the richness, the salad bar had a good array of vegetables, dressings, some fresh fruits and carb-based cold salads. And no stopping me from multiple serving of eggs be it deep fried, boiled, sunny side-up, scrambled, half-boiled, or Japanese omelette style. But of course for dessert, you can’t miss their light coffee jelly that is to be served with a sweetened cream.
