Finding the subtle differences in a Happy Teriyaki

Email Article Print Article Share on Facebook Share on Reddit Share on StumbleUpon

Don't be fooled by all the Happy Teriyaki joints in the neighborhood, the Pacific Avenue location in downtown Tacoma is the best one out there.

Of course the others are delicious in their own way, as every child should be loved as an individual, but let's be honest ... you know your mom loved your sister more than you.  Nothing different in the Happy Teriyaki family.

All you can eat menu selections can be scarce when it comes to sushi, but not at this Happy Teriyaki location.  With 28 sushi roll options given names like John Homes Roll (yes, it's huge), Sex On The Beach Roll (yes, it's fun) and Taste Like My Ex Wife Roll (I wouldn't know), simply reading the menu will fill you up in an instant.

Eleven Nigiri Sushi options are also included in Happy Teriyaki's $19.95 all-you-can-eat extravaganza, something Alicia Lawver and I proudly participated in.  It's rare to find all-you-can-eat sushi menus wielding such variety and personality.

Our table overflowed with plates of incredible decorative beauty and eccentric flavors that somehow melded together, creating one of the best damn meals I've ever had.

Anytime any one of you sushi lovers wants to rendezvous at Happy Teriyaki in downtown Tacoma, gimme a call.  I'm always down for an all-you-can-eat overdose.
