Do you live in the Pac NW as your location (assuming it's an area code) implies? I grew up out there and the strip mall teriyaki is out of this world. Every time I visit I make a point of getting lunch at my local strip mall for $3.98. Not sure why, but there are not Japanese people east of the the Mississippi practicing this wonderful craft on the level scene on the West Coast. Yup I live in the NW. Never had strip mall teriyaki before. I have to be careful with teriyaki these days. There's lots of pan asian fake crap that doesn't even taste like teriyaki but stir fried chicken.
