Teppen yaki is a Japanese form of cuisine .Cooking is done on a large iron hotplate .All the customers sit around the table and watch and are served straight from the oven. There is no seperate table .For starters we had a cold drink/ loocha followed by a bowl of rice ,steamed sprouts, large quantities of fried cabbage and any meat /fish/ egg/ mushroom /any other vegetables.This was very filling and for me a new experience.Student meal is also available for a fixed price.
shops around Cheng huang temple: ethnic cuisine
This place is bustling with tourists and vendors.You can look around and choose food.Nobody speaks chinese so you choose the food which looks pleasing to your eye .Everything is straight from oven,piping hot.It can be an assault on your senses but that is what is called local cuisine.I loved sampling it.
Favorite Dish: Rice dumplings filled with something ,cooked in something :).They provide a small wooden fork which breaks easily.Chopsticks are ideal;better learn it.
