Dinner and a show
What an interesting way to enjoy your food at a restaurant, being thrown at you while you attempt to catch it in your mouth. As I sat there waiting for the chef to throw my food at me, I wondered whether this was as much fun for him as it was for their customers.

Fukusui Teppanyaki (and no I haven't just insulted you) is a Japanese restaurant tucked away, as part of the Eco-Inn at Warners Bay, Newcastle. Walking through the doors to the crowded top floor restaurant, I was welcomed warmly by the supporting wait staff as they bustled about trying to accommodate the large crowds that it attracted.

Not knowing what to expect, I looked about in awe as four chefs standing over their separate hot plates were entertaining their hungry customers. As a few patrons held bowls to catch their food or the more suspenseful, in their mouth, while others were laughing at failed attempts of their friends.

As you wait for your table you can try the various Japanese beers, and check the menu to see what there was to offer. With 3 specialty live courses and a few a la carte items, with optional extras, there was plenty plenty to offer. The live shows cost between $27 and $47.

Once chosen and seated, all you have to do is sit back and relax as the chefs' work their magic. With my chosen dish in particular, we were served at a variety of different times, with each item cooked on the spot and to perfection. With quick and precise cutting skills, we were served; de-shelled giant banana prawns, chicken, beef, squid, vegetables, and rice. Each had a specific accompanying dipping sauce and those who were game tried their prawn head, crunchy to say the least.

Good food, good company and a show you won't forget, and with that, the signed the night with a salty Arigato.

It is good that food throwing is not the only way to eat, or a lot of people would probably be leaving hungry.
