The concept behind Aka Teppan is from the infamous Pepper Lunch franchise in East Asia. Meals which consist of either rice or pasta with a protein are served on a sizzling hot plate. Aka Teppan opened up not too long ago in the First Markham restaurant strip and it's already getting a lot of buzz. I read that people are willing to wait over an hour to get their sizzling plate meals! The restaurant is somewhat small, seating around 30 people. Service is fast but the plates don't all come out at once, I watched tables where one diner would finish their entire meal before the other people even got theirs.
Jess and I got the original Steak on Rice, $8.99, it comes with corn, green onions and their special soy sauce mixture.
It was good but not as good as Pepper Lunch, if I had a craving, I suppose this would do. You can also had extra corn, cheese, egg, etc. but for an extra charge.
Cherry got Pasta with Chicken with a tomato sauce, no complaints from her. I had some of her pasta and I didn't think it was anything special.
