The Seattle area is known for coffee. Coffee shops are everywhere. But something they aren’t widely known for is teriyaki. There are also teriyaki shops all over the place. And I am not talking the fancy Japanese restaurants. I am talking great fast food type teriyaki.
We had planned to eat at The Rainier Roaster at the Southcenter Mall. But they are doing construction and expanding the mall. And in the process, the food court no longer exists. Hence, Rainier Roaster no longer exists. Bummer! They had awesome roast beef and Caesar salads.
So we were hungry, and looking for someplace to eat. My wife suggested teriyaki. There had been a teriyaki place across the street from the mall. I used to eat there sometimes when I lived up the hill. So we went over and sure enough, the teriyaki place was still there. It is named Teriyaki Time. I have only eaten at this Teriyaki Time, but a google search shows that there are a handful of other places name Teriyaki Time, so it might be a small local chain.
Teriyaki Time is a small place and is tucked away. It is not a tourist place at all and is frequented by locals. You can tell the have a lot of regulars.
We ordered teriyaki chicken, and teriyaki beef. Each came with a small bit of salad, and two big balls of white rice. There was soy sauce, and teriyaki sauce on the table too. The chicken and beef were great examples of the type of teriyaki that you find in many of the teriyaki places. I want to find a place that has teriyaki chicken burgers. Anyway, the salad was simple lettuce with a miracle whip type dressing. The teriyaki was very good. I drizzled some teriyaki sauce over the rice, and it was good too.
