Sushi in the Maldives – Teppanyaki Restaurant

Tim and I got married at the end of February 2015 and we were fortunate to spend our honeymoon in the Maldives, on the incredible island of Velassaru. Aside from the general excitement of the honeymoon, I was really looking forward to trying out the different restaurants on the resort (especially after my pretty strict wedding diet!) I’ll be posting a few times about restaurants of Velassaru and first up is the Teppanyaki restaurant.

Teppanyaki is situated over the water in the lagoon, in the most perfect setting – we booked in advance of travelling to the Maldives to make sure we could get in, as we didn’t want to miss out on the experience.

We started with the Teppanyaki Signature Sushi Collection (salmon, tuna, reef fish, shitake, cream cheese, eel, crab stick, avocado and mango) and the Flaming Maguro (tuna sashimi, yuzu jelly, Szechuan peppers).

We both then decided to go for the local reef fish catch of the day (the exact name escapes me) but it was a meaty, white fish, and absolutely delicious!

Of course, the experience of the Teppanyaki restaurant in itself was great fun, watching the chefs creating their masterpieces right in front of us. We chatted to our chef for a little while after dinner and learned lots about what it’s like to live in the Maldives and the local ingredients available. All of the staff at Velassaru were so charming and helpful.

What I would give to click my fingers and be back there 😉
