Sakae Teppanyaki / Sakae Izakaya is located at Juru Auto City. Sakae Teppanyaki / Sakae Izakaya and Sakae Sushi are under the same company.

This is where my aunt gave me a birthday meal treat. (This is a backdated post). Arigatou gozaimasu my dear aunt!

Apart from teppanyaki dishes, tapas, desserts and drinks (sake and cocktails) are available in this restaurant.

Unagi Brown Rice is fried rice with chopped unagi and some mixed vegetables. It's very fragrant and not oily at all. A great 'wok hei' can be tasted from the fried rice.

Grilled striploin beef rolled with asparagus is one of the tapas we ordered. This dish do represent tapas which means small dishes. The beef is too dry and bland while the asparagus is over cooked.
Teppanyaki salmon which is a pretty normal dish. The salmon is fried to perfection with crispy skin and tender meat. A hint of black pepper taste added spice to the fish.

Scallop in teppanyaki style. The scallop is very fresh and sweet.

Foie Gras with Tofu. This dish is subject to availability. The foie gras just melt right in my mouth. The tofu is very soft and smooth. *Thumbs up*

Enoki Mushroom - The enoki mushroom is stir fried with minimum ingredients. Only garlic and some seasoning are used but it produces very fragrant mushroom. The mushroom itself taste very sweet but when I ate a more mouthfuls, it started to taste slightly salty.

Assorted Vegetable to balance up the diet. Vegetables are very fresh. It's stir fried to the very right timing as it's very crunchy.

Chicken Yaki Soba. The look is not that tempting ya, but it sure taste good. The soba is QQ and each pieces of soba is like coated with egg which make the soba more fragrant.

Geisha Spring Roll is spring roll stuffed with fresh oysters, vegetables and minced chicken. This dish taste so so to me as the meaty filling is too soft. I think it's due to osyter?

Grilled egplant topped with fish flakes - The eggplant is baked which retained the most original flavour of the eggplant. The fish flakes taste good. I always like fish flakes.
