If you could spare the few additional hours, you could hop on a plane to Tokyo for some really delicious Japanese food for the same price you pay in Hong Kong. But if you’re time strapped and craving for teppanyaki, Sanka is probably one of the places to go in Hong Kong. For the foodie with experiences at top teppanyaki places in Tokyo, do tone your expectations down a little.
Chef Yasunobu Yamashita was trained in Ukai Tei, a one-star teppanyaki restaurant in Tokyo, and he was also an apprentice under Paul Boscuse. The chef has a flair for blending French and Japanese cuisine.
A 5-course lunch with wagyu sirloin steak comes at HK$450. No complaints at all. The premium course for two is HK$1980, and you’ll get to savour their signature abalone dish and 150g of premium Kuroge wagyu sirloin. On top of the premium course, I ordered the wagyu fillet on the a la carte menu. Personally, I preferred the sirloin as has a delectable melting texture, but the fillet is good too if you prefer a more meaty taste.
A really enjoyable meal – I don’t mind coming back again for its lunch menu.
