Hot! Until the end!

Of course, Nagoya's specialty does not refer to just a plate of spaghetti with ketchup.
The beaten egg on the Teppan dish is most significant as this identifies the dish as a Nagoya specialty dish.
A Teppan plate is used to retain the heat of the dish and is usually found in coffeeshops instead of the regular western style restaurants or restaurants selling pasta.
The coffeeshops were probably the first to feature an Teppan Italian on their menu!
