HOT STUFF: Shin
teppanyaki idea has
proven so popular, it's on
its way to Auckland.
By JADE COOPER
JAPANESE TEPPENYAKI chef
Shin Yamashita has gone mobile
since the Kaiapoi restaurant he
worked in was destroyed in the
Now, his highly successful con-
cept could be the next big thing for
Auckland dining -- at least, that is
what student entrepreneur Kate
Austin is banking on.
Ms Austin, a fifth-year law and
business student at Canterbury
University, plans to open a
replica of the novel Christchurch
business Shin's Teppanyaki in
Auckland next month.
Shin's Teppanyaki is a one-man
Japanese restaurant that travels
to diners, setting up in their back
yards, dining rooms, or garages.
The mobile restaurant has
grown rapidly this year, with
bookings five or six nights a week.
Anyone after a Saturday night
booking must wait until March
next year for the next free date.
Its remarkable popularity was a
key factor behind Kate's decision
to start up her own Shin's
Teppanyaki in Auckland.
We had Shin over for a dinner
party at the flat and we loved
him,'' she said.
I really liked the concept and
when I heard how busy he was, I
thought about how well he would
do in a place like Auckland.''
The restaurant will be Kate's
first business venture, but she is
confident of its potential.
From that one night at our flat,
he got another three bookings.''
Hospitality New Zealand South
Island regional manager Amy
Mclellan-Minty said that operat-
ing out of portable or temporary
locations had become a popular
solution for Christchurch hos-
pitality businesses that had lost
their buildings in the quakes.
It's about being innovative, at
the end of the day.
It's smart, if they want to keep
their doors open right now, as
some of their damaged buildings
haven't even come down yet.''
Shin said he had always liked
the idea of starting up a mobile
restaurant, but never had a
chance to do so.
My boss didn't know when our
building would be repaired, so
the earthquake really made Shin's
Teppanyaki happen,'' he said.
A friend helped me build a
mobile teppanyaki plate and then
I just began taking bookings and
coming to cook.''
Kate will manage the Auckland
version of the restaurant while
finishing her studies and looks
forward to putting what she has
learned into practice.
