cooking on a rock

Hi,

a long while ago I went to japan on a business trip, my host took me to a restaurant, lunch,, that the hostess cooked the thin strips of meats, veggies, and fruit on some sort or flat rock.  There where burners under the rock.

might someone know what kind of a rock this might be?

thanks

Nothing beats an Egg-Foo-Young with fried rice and a huge Egg Roll at the end! Cold draft beer too!
Rok: Served on stone.

Ishi-Yaki: Hot stone cooking.

Inagiku: Cooking on stone.

Made from shaped igneous rock like granite.

Probably the stone was made of clay. Cooking on clay has been a part of the cuisine of many cultures. The Japanese use an earthenware pot named donabe that can be used on an open flame.
