The roadworks at Chatswood on a rainy and busy Sunday meant that there was horrific traffic built up throughout the detour. By the time we arrived at Chatswood Chase, my first choice for dining, New Shanghai was packed to the brim, and at least one hour wait.
I took a ticket and tried to persevere, but as you can tell by the title of this post, I didn't make it to New Shanghai! After a quick half hearted attempt to browse the stores, hunger got the better of me and we headed back down to look for something to eat.
This little Japanese Teppanyaki place, Hero Teppan is next door to New Shanghai
Their menu - mainly consisting of teppanyaki, grill & tempura items
They also had sushi and sashimi offerings
I decided to try and be healthy and ordered a jasmine tea
Fried udon noodles with pork - loaded with veggies and pork, I wish there were more noodles though! You can choose from soba or udon noodles.
Wagyu steak with garlic/onion sauce - there is also a choice of wasabi butter or a balsamic sauce, nice and tender beef, but because of the way it's plated, it reminds me of Pepper Lunch
