I’m lucky to live in the Seattle area, where there is a teriyaki restaurant every couple of blocks (I think there’s a local ordinance that requires it). They serve a very Americanized version of teriyaki chicken, nothing like you’d find in Japan, but utterly irresistible nonetheless. Everyone who lives in Seattle has a favorite strip mall teriyaki restaurant, to which they have sworn their undying loyalty; religious wars have been fought by lesser fanatics.
If your town doesn’t have a good teriyaki joint, fear not: you can make it at home without too much work. As a bonus, you can tweak the teriyaki glaze to your own preferences.
Peace, love, and biscuits,
