VivoCity Place to Eat: Express Teppanyaki

Don’t you love the sound of sizzling meat and vegetables? Teppanyaki is about the experience of having it cooked right in front of you. It makes me smile haha.

Express Teppanyaki is located inside VivoCity’s Food Republic.

Happy to discover a teppanyaki place that isn’t far from my house in Bukit Merah! PJ and I usually go to Orchard for our teppanyaki fix (this is the one at the food court of Wisma Atria).

You get to enjoy watching the cook prepare your meal.

Location. You can find Express Teppanyaki at Food Republic, VivoCity. If you don’t know where Food Republic is, it’s near the Sentosa Express. Within the food court, Express Teppanyaki is on the left side as you enter.

Express Teppanyaki VivoCity’s menu as of April 2019.

Price. We spent about SGD 12-16 each here. I think it’s a little cheaper than the one at Wisma Atria. The offerings are the teppanyaki basics you’d find like sliced beef, prawn, and a few other set meals that are bundled in different ways.

Sauteed bean sprouts.

Taste. It’s your food court-style teppanyaki so it’s best to manage expectations. Is it good? I’ll say yes. It’s a teppanyaki quick fix. I liked the sliced beef with garlic and chilli bits. This has generous amounts of brown sauce. PJ ordered the king prawn set and I love that more.

Turning 29: Tour de Tanglin

I’m at the twilight of my twenties. (Should I be worried?)

I hope in 2015 I’ll be spending my 30th birthday bringing my family to Korea or Taiwan. #wishlist

This year though I had to tone things down. Originally, I wanted to have a theme party (I’m like THAT). Pajama party, nachos party, sausage party (!!), 80s Stripclub party, barbecue party… But to cut costs I scrapped all of that. Continue reading “Turning 29: Tour de Tanglin”
