Hibachi food is a style of cooking that originated in Japan.

The word hibachi means “fire bowl” in Japanese.

It traditionally refers to the cylindrical container with an open top and designed to burn wood or charcoal to cook meat and vegetables over an open flame.

The best part about Hibachi food is the show, which is also one of the reasons that increase the price for this kind of food.

The chefs cook right in front of you, making it so much fun to watch them juggle knives and flip spatulas like they are playing with a ball.

To get a delicious hibachi meal, customers can require their favorite kinds of vegetables and meat that will be added to their dishes and prepared on a very hot and large cooking surface.

Because there is so much more involved than a simple meal, it is time-consuming and also requires skillful chefs, Hibachi food is typically found in high-end restaurants and has a more expensive price.

Since the food is cooked by the heat of charcoal or wood, it has a different taste from what is cooked with gas or electricity heat.
