The only item we tried was the extremely fragrant garlicky Teppan Garlic Seafood Rice Set ($18) with generous amount of diced seafood.

Ala Carte Menu

The salad offered at Teppan Kappou Kenji is so distinctive, Healthy Salad with Japanese Dressing ($15). Instead of the usual sesame salad dressing, it has a homemade seaweed dressing and natto. Indeed healthy.

Meat lover who enjoyed fried item must try the Gyu Katsu ($22). I was surprised to find the meat tender even after deep-frying.

The Stewed Wagyu Hamburg ($15) is the crowd favourite. Not my kind of food though, since it is a tomato-based dish.

Next is a dish that I enjoyed, the Grilled Fish with Garlic Butter ($15). Using Perch Fish with similar texture to the Cod, and garlic butter was a impeccable duo. With each mouth, coupled it with crispy garlic slices to give that extra crunch.

Ending the meal with simple Seasonal Fruits.

Omasake

Omasake beings from $60 to the most expensive at $150.

The sample dishes we tried from the Omakase was impressive.

NAHMJ Verdict

Food served at the homely Teppan Kappou Kenji was delicious though there are some dishes which personally, I didn’t appreciate due to preference. Overall, the experience was positive and we think the price is reasonable.
