I belong to the rare 0.00000001% of the population who doesn’t like sushi (and most seafood in general). I just cannot, for the life of me, understand why people would find bland, tasteless, slimy pieces of raw fish tasty. But I do enjoy a good chicken teriyaki or katsu or some other form of cooked Japanese food from time to time, and a place named “Teriyaki Bowl” seemed like a good place to check out. The shop was quite small, and could only seat a handful of people (it’s probably more suited for takeout than dine-in). Fortunately, it was not very busy when I arrived, and I was able to get a seat (it did fill up not long after). Now my go-to dish is typically chicken teriyaki, but I wanted to try something a bit different this time, so I got their Chicken Curry Bowl.
Chicken Curry Bowl ($8):
The chicken here was similar to that of teriyaki chicken, only with Japanese-style curry instead of teriyaki. There was a pretty decent amount of chicken present, which was very tender, juicy and flavourful. The curry was fragrant, mildly sweet with a slight bit of heat, and served as a great sauce for the rice. Unfortuantely, I did not care too much for the rice; it was sticky and clumped in some sections. Nevertheless, the dish was still quite tasty, and the portion was fairly generous for the price. I’m a big eater, so I was still a bit hungry afterwards, but it should be sufficient to satisfy a normal person.
I quite enjoyed my visit to Teriyaki Bowl. In fact, I actually tried returning the next day, but apparently they’re closed on Tuesdays (I ended up going to Sushi Gallery; review on that coming up). If you’re looking for a tasty, affordable lunch, I’d highly recommend checking this place out!
