JA Manafaru reintroduces Teppanyaki Grill experience
After a four-year hiatus this most exciting of dining experiences makes a comeback to JA Manafaru’s island paradise. The culinary team has employed a brand new, highly skilled master chef who is set to slice, dice and juggle before the very eyes of 12 lucky resort guests three nights per week from February 1st.
After winning “Best Culinary Resort” award from TTM in 2023, Executive Chef Moosa Nazeer is excited to introduce The Teppanyaki Experience, offering a delectable menu starting with traditional miso soup before a selection of tempting entrées are presented including Nori Tempura Taco’s. Diners can then choose from the best seafood the Indian Ocean has to offer or a choice of meat from the resorts carefully selected Ethical Meat program including Cape Grim beef and Hazeldene’s Chicken.
JA Manafaru introduced this program in 2023 to cater to the growing demand of travellers to know where their food comes from and that animals are treated humanely during the rearing process.
This programme is just one part of the resort’s new sustainability and wellness initiatives. One of these programs, Wellness Your Way, which launched at the resort in 2023 with a gala dinner on World Food Day, 18th November, also features in the Teppanyaki Experience. As with all six restaurants on offer at this 5-star Maldives island, there are dedicated versions of the menu catering to Vegan/Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Dairy Free and low carb eating lifestyles so all guests can enjoy the live cooking action at the Teppan grill.
Chef Moosa Nazeer commented “I am beyond thrilled to reintroduce our Teppanyaki at JA Manafaru. This was previously one of our most popular dining experiences and we have taken the hiatus to refine and develop our offering and we can’t wait to see our guests enjoying this once again”.
