Hong Kong's ultra trendy Robatayaki restaurant Sakesan has opened on Taikang Terrace its second branch away from the special administrative region. It is also the first restaurant in China's mainland by Cafe Deco Group, one of Hong Kong's leading food and beverages groups. Robatayaki means "by the fireside," referring to the centuries-old rustic cooking tradition of fishermen in northern Japan. After a day at sea, they cooked their catch over an open fire then shared it by passing food on oars from boat to boat. From these humble beginnings, this is now one of the hottest trends in global Japanese dining. Diners sit around a charcoal grill when chefs cook as customers place their orders, surrounded by ingredients. The signature dishes in Sakesan are black cod in miso for 150 yuan (US$23.8) and baby back pork ribs (120 yuan for four pieces). Customers can also choose from a variety of main courses such as robata skewers, rice hotpots, gyoza, tempura and various Japanese noodles. The cost is about 200 to 300 yuan per person. There is also a standalone bar.
