Chili’s , cloves, garlic, fennel seeds, and ginger root are some of the spices you’d smell entering any Asian food joint. These bold flavors make up some of our favorite dishes we love today. I’d heard about this “low key” spot in Irving, Texas. My friend is an foodie so I knew it had to be worth tasting TWICE. The original word of mouth also said it was inexpensive, so you know I was in. This restaurant is kind of tucked away in the sense that if you’re not in the area much you won’t know about it. I highly recommend you try Koriyaki Asian Grill though. Let me tell and show you why.
Like any place you may visit, you would expect great customer service. The staff here has covered that. They’re very comfortable with their customers and it shows. Everyone greats you. I mean when I walked in I was greeted by the chef then quickly by the person whom was going to take my order. The menu was easy to read with prices. As the menu showed prices for the plate there was a big sign that advised of an add on for a drink and spring roll. THE PRICE WAS UNDER $2. So instantly in my mind I’m thinking “ Winning”. I ended up ordering the Spicy Chicken and white rice, a side salad also came with it.
I was able to sit and watch the chef prepare my food or gather my drink and condiments as I waited. The process of them cooking and bagging my food ( I ordered to go) wasn’t a long wait either. So if you’re in a rush it’ll be fine.
I got everything I thought I needed and like anyone else probably more than what I needed ( hahaha ). I’m not sure why we as people do this when we go out to eat somewhere we need extra napkins and sauces. But OH WELL (sigh). When they called me for my order I checked over it and everything was right and very hot. It smelled so good I couldn’t wait to dig in.
There was soooo much food that came with this plate. I just knew I’d be fat and full and that was all I needed. I used extra teriyaki sauce and hot sauce for the chicken and rice. I really love spicy food so it’s like second nature to add more. I used the sesame seed dressing for my salad. Once I stuck my fork in this plate it was over before I knew it. I think the plate won. It took me down so fast. I couldn’t eat it all, so I had some for later. Everything blended so well. It was exactly what I had expected it to be. I’d give this establishment a 9 until I taste more (haha). Anything I like I often visit over board the first few weeks. I look forward to this journey.
