All about the first time

Dear all...

I will write my experience related to all about the first time. The first,  I eat okonomiyaki seafood with Sapporo and Hiroshima style. The interesting one is we cook it in teppanyaki. Maybe some of you (not from Japanese) did know about okonomiyaki and teppanyaki. I will briefly describe about it. The taste and its ingredients is almost same like "martabak" or "puyunghai".

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savoury pancake containing a variety of ingredients. The name is derived from the word okonomi, meaning "what you like" or "what you want", and yaki meaning "grilled" or "cooked". Okonomiyaki is mainly associated with the Kansai or Hiroshima areas of Japan, but is widely available throughout the country. Toppings and batters tend to vary according to region. Tokyo okonomiyaki is usually smaller than a Hiroshima or Kansai okonomiyaki.

Teppanyaki is a style of Japanese cuisini that uses an iron griddle to cook food. The word teppanyaki is derived from teppan, which means iron plate, and yaki, which means grilled, broiled, or pan-fried. In Japan, teppanyaki refers to dishes cooked using an iron plate, including steak, shrimp, okonomiyaki, yakisoba and monjayaki. Modern teppanyaki grills are typically propane-heated flat surface grills and are widely used to cook food in front of guests at restaurants. Teppanyaki grills are commonly confused with the hibachi barbecue grill, which has a charcoal or gas flame and is made with an open grate design. With a solid griddle type cook surface, the teppanyaki is more suitable for smaller ingredients, such as rice, egg, and finely chopped vegetables.

The second, I with Mana and some Indonesian friend watch orchestra in Sapporo Concert Hall Kitara. I was very excited to watch it because the curiosity. In Indonesia, usually I very often to listen the song of Gita who accompanied by Erwin Gutawa orchestra. So I thought classical music will be the same wherever in the world. 

Thanks for read my post...
