The raw food is served on a plate so hot that it cooks right there in front of you.

For thin slivers of all types of food.

Or big chunks of icecream and chocolat, eat fast.

For small quick portions, as appetizer or so.

Perhaps plate could be redhot metal.

You don't have to eat that carpaccio raw!

       I sometimes get frajitas at a Mexican restaurant where they bring it on a hot pan placed within a basket or ceramic dish for safety.(it finishes cooking at the table.) I do think I would like a warm bowl for ice cream that is frozen too hard, so I'll deliver one warm bun here. [+]

       This is comprehensively Baked (or should that be fried).   

       Chinese and Indian restaurants routinely serve "sizzling" dishes where a very hot cast iron bowl in a wooden or ceramic carrier is used to cook food at the table. Some establishments have a system of serving uncooked meat on a thick polished granite block heated to a high temperature; the diner cooks the food themselves.   

       We assert that this is Widely Known To Exist.

       //polished granite block heated to a high temperature\\ Yes we call that steengrillen, stonegrilling, that was the inspiration. Here the stone is replaced by a hot plate so the whole concept seems rather different to me. Don't know anything about those hot bowls but they don't sound much like a hot plate either.

       Mmmm Applebees Sizzling Steak Fajitas!

       Yes, I must agree, this is pretty well done. As in baked.

       I'm not sure that much would get cooked on any hot plate, unless it was massive. I presume the sizzling dishes are mostly cooked on a stove or in an oven, before they're taken to the table to sizzle their last.

       One trendy food thing to do is cook on a salt block. They heat up a big block of salt, and then cook strips of meat on it. This both cooks and seasons the meat. And the heavy salt blcok stays hot enough to do this (because it's heavy).

       And what about hibachi?   

       And when they bring you fajitas sizzling in the skillet?
EdwinBakery, Jan 18 2011
  

       I know for a fact that the fajita sizzle is a sham. They throw the meat on there and there is no sizzle. There is a little water basin that the server pulls a few tablespoons of water out of and adds to the plate before entering the dining room with 30 seconds or so of fresh sizzle. Faked. Not. Baked.

       The fajita sizzle's not shizzle, at least not in the kitchens I worked in. The food is not cooked in the heated skillet though, just served.   

       // Faked. Not. Baked.// What is this, a punctuation assignment? My submission is “Faked not; baked!”

       At first I, too, felt this was baked, but a warm bowl to melt ice cream is a bit different! So, that is why I bunned.
