Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashi Keisuke Bettei opens at Peck Seah Street #hamburgkeisuke

There's a new kid in town today! After treating our taste buds to all sorts of delicious ramen creations and some to-die-for gyozas too, Chef Keisuke Takeda is back with a brand new concept and this time burger or beef lovers will surely rejoice!

Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashi Keisuke Bettei offers two set meals only and even with just these two, it will really be hard to choose which one to go for. The restaurant will specialize on freshly ground and formed a la minute US Prime Beef Patties served with a piece of deliciously deep-fried ebi fry, grilled tofu, miso soup, rice and the best part -- an unlimited trip to the salad bar plus the egg station!

For those who have visited Keisuke's other concepts, you'd know how generous he has been in offering boiled eggs and his signature beansprouts which you can eat to your hearts content. This time though, we're talking about 8 different types of egg dishes made just the way you want it as well as more than 20 fresh veggies and ready made salad creations for you to accompany your hamburg with.

Let me start by talking about the Eggs. I was so happy to see that they're offering sweet Tamago yaki which I am a HUGE fan of. I pretty much lost count of the number of tamago yaki sticks that Paul and I had when we went to the Tsukiji Market in Japan. We just can't get over how delicious these perfectly crafted egg omelets were with a slight sweet flavor. Aside from that, the scrambled egg is truly hotel breakfast buffet quality and if you love Keisuke's Tendon Ginza Itsuki then you'll probably be familiar with the deep-fried egg that oozes out so sexily all over your tendon bowl. If there's one thing that got my colleagues really excited to try at Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashi Keisuke, it was when I casually showed them shots of the egg station and the different types of egg creations available.

Now, let's move on to the salad bar. With a rotating line-up featuring 20 different items on a daily basis, you'll surely find something that you'll love! On the day of my visit, I skipped the hassle of creating my own salad and went straight to the ready prepared ones. My favorites were the creamy potato salad as well as the comforting macaroni salad. I also liked the boiled sweet potato too.

There are several dressings for you to choose from and as you end you meal, be sure to head back as they got some fresh fruits and some dessert too.

Okay, I've teased you enough by talking about the accompaniments but it's time for the main star of the show -- the hamburg set. Choose from the Keisuke Prime Beef Hamburg Set (S$18.80) or the Triple Cheese Prime Beef Hamburg Set (S$20.80). The main difference is that the latter has the patty filled with three types of cheese and it's really so amazing watching it ooze out as you pour the sauce over the piping hot beef patty. Together with these mouthwatering burger patties is a choice among 4 different sauces -- Keisuke original sweet and spicy sauce, Demi-glace, Oroshi Ponzu (radish with vinegar) and Teriyaki.

The Keisuke Prime Beef Hamburg Set gives you 150g of US Prime Beef Shoulder that is minced into two sizes and mixed together thus giving you a more interesting bite. This set comes with a piece of ebi fry, fried beancurd and really silky tofu with bonito flakes. We opted not to order rice with this set but if you really must then please go ahead and do so. I feel though that this whole set together with repeated visits to the salad and egg stations got me so full at the end of my meal. I was also able to try all four sauces and personally, my vote goes to the Teriyaki sauce.

The Triple Cheese Prime Beef Hamburg Set is stuffed with a medley of cheddar, mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. One thing I noticed was that the cheese flavors were not overwhelming and instead it complemented the beefy, meaty flavor of the hamburg. It really gave a nice touch and a perfect contrast in texture. One way to fully enjoy this is to pour the sauce and dig in a quickly as you can. It took us  a while as we took a million and one photos before digging in and sadly our cheese has hardened up so quickly. It was still good though so no regrets there.

I'm loving the open kitchen concept and in a way the exhaust was good enough that you won't have to worry about heading back after lunch or dinner smelling like your meal. Expect to queue as we always saw empty chairs lining up the entrance of the restaurant in anticipation for the hungry crowd. I recommend that you go early or during non-peak hours. Whatever happens though, this is definitely one of the restaurants you have to try this 2017.

Check out Teppanyaki Hamburg Nihonbashi Keisuke Bettei at 72 Peck Seah Street, Singapore 079329. Lunch is from 1130AM to 230PM while Dinner service is from 530PM to 10PM. Call them at +65 6908 4348. Note though that the restaurant doesn't accept reservations and payment is through cash only
