Here are three things that make University Teriyaki stand out from the masses and masses of teriyaki shops: 1. The sauce on its teriyaki chicken has got more kick than most (there has to be a little Korean bean paste in there with the soy and sugar). 2. The place is clean, clean, clean, and the food always tastes fresh. 3. The menu goes so far beyond gyoza and spicy chicken to include kimchi fried rice and jjah-jahng-myun, the black bean-sauce noodles that Korean kids love as much as American kids do mac 'n' cheese. This "Japanese" place may be the best Korean restaurant in the neighborhood.
Only order #18 on the Korean menu (jamppong, spicy seafood soup) at University Teriyaki if you're with someone you love—or better yet, if you're by yourself. When you order, the people behind the counter will ask if you know what you're getting into. Assure them you do. Take your red plastic number, get yourself two cups of water from the self-serve pitchers, and find a quiet table in the warren of rooms, out of view of the large groups of students all texting each other over massive plates of teriyaki. When your soup arrives, take a cautionary whiff of the bright red broth, anticipating the heat to come, then dive in. Know that noodles, squid, crab, mussels, shrimp, and vegetables won't do anything to alleviate the burn of the broth; this is the kind of soup that makes your eyes water and your forehead break out in a sweat. Don't take too big a slurp, or you will start coughing, eliciting the stares of the undergraduates. Now aren't you glad for the semi-private table and the extra glass of water?—Anna Roth
