Back in the Edo period, Japan was going through a bit of a culinary revolution. It was during this time, when new ingredients were flooding into the country and increased urbanization was bringing about a demand for great-tasting restaurant food, that an unknown chef first prepared a mixture of soy sauce, rice wines, and sugar to grill his meats in. Years later, this same sauce would be among the first Japanese tastes to be embraced by the American market. The name of this sauce has become quintessential of the American relationship with Japanese food, and it is for this reason that we are proud to continue bringing this taste “2U” today.
Welcome to Teriyaki 2U, your home for quality teriyaki and other Asian classics.
