When you go to Japanese restaurant here, you will always see this menu: TERIYAKI.  But in Japan we don’t eat them so often.  Besides, so called “teriyaki chiken” “teriyaki fish” etc are not really “teriyaki” at all.  

Well, “teriyaki” means just a technique used in Japanese cuisine.  It’s not really a name of dish.  “Teriyaki” = foods are broiled or grilled in a sweet soy sauce based marinade.  However, In restaurants in Perth “teriyaki fish” the fish is deep-fried and coated with some sauce.  “Teriyaki Chicken” chicken is sometimes cooked in a pan.  Ummm they are totally new food to me.

I like them though.  I do.  When I have chance to go to Japanese restaurant in Perth I usually order “teriyaki fish”.  It’s just because I like fish and there is nothing much on the menu I want to order.  The menu in most Japanese restaurants here is quiet boring to me.  (except for Japanese restaurants which are owned by Japanese:  their menu is ok, like Banzai in Leederville, Ha-Lu in Mt Hawthorn, Kanta Japanese in Langford…)

I had Teriyaki Fish tonight.  

Yoko’s Gourmet Cafe in Kardinya

You sure don’t get chance to eat this dish in Japan:p  You won’t find it anywhere…

    Hi there. I saw your blog and your recommendation of Ha-Lu restaurant for authentic Japanese food. We tried it last Saturday and it was greatttt!!!! We really enjoyed our meals. My hubby loves Japanese beer and Ha-Lu has a few of Japanese beer options which you cant really find it in bottle shop (even better!!!) Will definitely go there again next time.

    If you have any other recommendation please let us know.
