At some point, every country builds a Great Wall to keep the secret of its cuisine from spreading to foreign nations, only to find that the real wall lies in its heart. Tear down the Great Wall of painful secrets with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of Japanese and Chinese fare at Teriyaki.
Teriyaki's chefs whip up fresh Japanese and Chinese fare, uniting the two cuisines on a menu loaded with meat, seafood, and vegetarian options. Like high schoolers with handlebar moustaches, the house-special tofu ($6.95) wears a badge of honor as a chef's specialty. Japanese bowls amalgamate steaming-hot ingredients to create flavorful varieties such as the teriyaki chicken ($3.79), which comes doused in teriyaki sauce concocted from a recipe that is—just like grandpa’s coal-burning microwave—more than 50 years old. Moist steamed or fried rice accompanies spicy mongolian beef ($8.50), and the shrimp with lobster sauce ($8.50) offers nourishment culled from the sea that’s much tastier than a peanut-butter and jellyfish sandwich.
