#87. Beef Teriyaki Bowl, Teriyami

Because ustedes gentle readers love lists, and we lazy scribes love easy hits, behold the latest entry in our Top 100 dishes list that continues until Best Of--at which point, we'll give you MORE lists! Now, on with the show...

Teriyaki bowls stopped being Japanese decades ago in Southern California, and the culture that best appropriated it are Mexicans. But Koreans are muscling in to the scene as well, and they do it best at Teriyami, hidden next to a Stater Brothers in Tustin. What does Taco Man have to do with Teriyami? Nothing--no photo for it at the moment. I'll tell you why after the jump!

It's in the cooking--thinner than usual, fattier than usual--with sauces reeking of garlic and ginger. I can go on, but

there's a UCLA commencement speech

I have to write...

Teriyami, 14215 Red Hill Ave., Tustin, (714) 832-3323.
