What is Teriyaki?

A large portion of our customers keep coming back for our fresh and tasty teriyaki sauce. So…we thought why not share some info about it?

The word Teriyaki is a combination of two Japanese words “teri” and “yaki”. Teri means luster and yaki means grill or broil. To make a teriyaki dish, ingredients are broiled, roasted, or grilled after being marinated in or basted by teriyaki sauce. It’s the teriyaki sauce that brings the shiny look (teri) to the ingredients. Yoshi’s Teriyaki sauce is made daily at all our locations with the freshest ingredients and no preservatives. That’s what makes Yoshi’s sauce the best.
