Blossoms Expands Teppanyaki Services Aruba

Aruba is an incredibly diverse island, with a wide variety of cultures and cuisines for you to experience. And while you’ll find many Caribbean, Dutch, and Spanish restaurants, Asian cuisine is also well represented thanks to Blossoms Japanese and Chinese Restaurant in Palm Beach.

Blossoms offers the finest Chinese and Japanese cuisine in Aruba with an authentic Asian experience. Upon walking into the restaurant, you’ll be greeted with decor that blends Japanese and Chinese elements to create a unique atmosphere you don’t often find in the Caribbean. You’ll also notice the new additions to the Blossoms dining room floor as part of a renovation – 3 modern and elegant double Teppanyaki Tables – where guests can enjoy dinner and an unforgettable show at the same time led by their master chefs.

About Teppanyaki

Teppanyaki is one of the main attractions of Blossoms, consisting of a flat grill surrounded by guests on 3 of the 4 sides. In the middle is an expert chef who cooks high-quality meats, fish, vegetables, and just about anything else that can be grilled directly in front of you while you watch. The bright, flashy, and mesmerizing display provides insight into the cooking process as well as an interactive show to keep you entertained while you dine. You may even be asked to participate in cooking your meal to the delight of friends and family.

Blossoms Triples Teppanyaki Tables with Dining Room Renovation

This “dinner and a show” is a unique experience that lasts 90 minutes or more, which unfortunately has limited the availability of the experience for those visiting Aruba for a short time without time for a reservation. However, this renovation has solved availability concerns by tripling the number of guests that can be served.

To allow more people to experience this unique attraction, Blossoms added 2 more Teppanyaki double tables to their dining area. This brings the total up to 6 tables – each with around 10 seats – allowing up to 60 guests to enjoy the show at a time. Even better – you can enjoy the show in the comfort of air conditioning thanks to the indoor Teppanyaki Tables.

Couples, families, parties, and even large gatherings can now sit, drink, eat, and enjoy a masterful display of cooking prowess at the beautiful Blossoms Japanese and Chinese Restaurant in the heart of Palm Beach.

Blossoms Triples Teppanyaki Table Offering

Blossoms has been serving up delicious Chinese and Japanese meals for many years on the beautiful island of Aruba. Now, by popular demand, Blossoms is pleased to announce the expansion of its exciting Teppanyaki offering by tripling the number of Teppanyaki Table stations from two to SIX in the form of three double islands!

What is a Teppanyaki Table?

Teppanyaki Table

The Teppanyaki Table is a truly unique dining experience. Many people think that the Japanese Hibachi Grill and a Teppanyaki Table are the same thing, but they are different in a few key ways. Hibachi uses an open-grate barbecue grill with a charcoal or gas flame for cooking. In Teppanyaki, by contrast, a solid-surface cooking griddle is used. The reason this distinction is important is because the solid-surface griddle allows for a much wider range of ingredients to be used, including eggs, rice and other smaller ingredients that would just fall through an open-grate grill. However, in popular usage, everyone tends to consider “teppanyaki” and “hibachi” as interchangeable, so don’t be surprised when people use either one to describe the kind of experience we offer here at Blossoms.

The word teppanyaki is derived from different Japanese words, including “teppan” (the metal griddle used for cooking) and “yaki” (which means pan-fried, broiled or grilled). The word “hibachi” literally means “fire bowl” because the small containers used to hold the burning charcoal first started out as bowls lined with a heatproof material. 

Teppanyaki is a relatively recent development in Japanese cuisine, dating back only to the mid 1940s. It has never been especially popular in Japan itself, but is hugely popular with tourists, which is why Teppanyaki table offerings have sprung up all around the world.

Why did Blossoms Triple its Teppanyaki Offering?

Teppanyaki Table

The answer to this question is simple: People love watching the food they are going to eat being prepared right in front of them. Teppanyaki has evolved over the years into something much more exciting than a mere meal – it is a true performance for which chefs must go through a lot of training to perfect. Manual dexterity and a warm, engaging personality are a must, and the Teppanyaki chefs at Blossoms never disappoint in either aspect, including surprising pyrotechnic displays of soaring flames as they chop and grill a meal fit for royalty before your very eyes. You might even accept an invitation to try your hand at Teppanyaki cooking alongside our expert chefs! Our three indoor “islands” for Teppanyaki are each a double-grill arrangement that can accommodate from 16-20 guests per island, so it’s a great option for larger groups of family and friends!
