So if you’ve read my last post, I didn’t read the hours sign at the front of Teriyaki Bowl and tried visiting the shop on Tuesday, only to find it closed.
Although there is quite a large strip of restaraunts further down Broadway, I was too lazy to walk the distance and decided to head to Sushi Gallery, which was just about a block away. Being part of the tiny percentage of people who actually don’t like sushi, I stuck to the rice/noodle section, and got the Hot Stone Bibimbob, which was served with either beef or chicken (I went with chicken).
Hot Stone Bibimbob ($11.50):
This came in a big stone bowl that was piping hot and sizzling. There was a good heap of vegetables consisting of bean sprouts, pea shoots, seaweed, zucchini and carrots, as well as a decent amount of chicken and a fried egg with a runny yolk. The rice here was perfectly cooked without any clumps, and the parts at the edges crisped up and browned nicely and added a fantastic crunch as well as fragrance. Not only am I part of the tiny fraction of people who don’t like seafood, I’m also part of the minority that prefer solid egg yolks over runny ones. Fortunately, I wasn’t bothered here since the stone bowl was hot and cooked the egg quickly. I did find the meat and vegetables to be a bit too bland for my liking; fortunately, the soy sauce and gochujang that was served with the bowl helped. The portion was quite generous; I’m a big eater and I was actually quite full afterwards.
So even though I was disappointed that I didn’t get to eat again at Teriyaki Bowl, I still quite enjoyed my experience at Sushi Gallery. The staff here were also very friendly. This is a good palce for a quick and affordable meal.
P.S. They serve complimentary miso soup to first time customers. I didn’t have any since I don’t really care for plain, brothy soup, but I’m sure others would appreciate it.
