AboutHibachi GrillNearly a century ago, the Hibachi Grill originated from OSAKA, JAPAN, KOBE’s neighboring city. In the early 1900’s, the grill was used to make Osaka’s dish, Okonomi Yaki (Japanese pancake with meat, vegetables, and seafood). Presently in Japan, the Hibachi Grill is used to make Okonami Yaki, skewered meats, steaks, and others. From Japan, the founder of Benihana restaurants, Rocky Aoki reformed Teppan Yaki to Hibachi in the early 1970’s. This display of Americanization is the simple combination of the chef’s skills, guests’ amusement, and great taste.
