Bowz Teppan Dining

Right next door to “One Tree Grill” – Teppan Bowz is possessed of a distinctive name that requires a little explaining : the “Teppan” part refers to the style of food served – “teppanyaki” , food fried on a large griddle; the “Bowz” part of the name refers to the owner/chef, Ken Totsukawa’s, hair, or lack thereof (bozu, trans. : “crew cut”), though you’d never know since he is always attired – when cooking – in a stylish peaked cap; (Japanese “shaggy dog” joke ?).
The centre piece of this spare, stylish restaurant is the griddle, surrounded by counter seating, & the spaceship-sized range hood above. Opened not so long ago, Teppan Bowz’s “teppan fusion” already has repeat customers who have developed a serious habit when it comes to the cuisine – not least for the exquisite green tea creme brulee on the dessert menu.
The A la Carte evening menu has some excellent, eye-catching stand outs : the Teppan Caprese Salad (tofu, with melted mozzarella, tomato & balsamic); the Teppan Cheese Pizza (with aonori seaweed); the Roti Sujinikomi (beef tendon/stew with roti bread); & the fresh tuna steak, with yuzu-ponzu sauce, which redefines the word “succulent”. Party menus are available, for ten or more, & there is a special deals, at Teppan Bowz’s website.? Licensed. Bookings are essential for the weekend.

We admire the effort and the confidence of the Japanese restaurants here in New Zealand. We also look forward to the new styles of food and the creations they will come up with as they continue to progress individually, and as they blend these elements with New Zealand cooking culture.
