Golden Bowl is a teriyaki restaurant in Buena Park. Come lunchtime, the line goes out the door with blue- and white-collar workers looking for cheap, pleasing food, usually sticking to the bowls but sometimes veering into the excellent hamburgers. It’s not completely Mexicanized—while horchata is on tap, the default hot sauce remains Sriracha—but the majority of eaters is Latino. To appeal to them, Golden Bowl even offers a teriyaki burrito, and while I’m as big a proponent of fusion Mexican food as anyone, don’t order it: The rice and meat work, but the owners strangely decided to place a slice of Kraft cheese inside.
