Teriyaki Madness (Akron, OH)

A few months back, Teriyaki Madness opened in Akron. Any time we had driven out West Market Street, we always mused about stopping in. After a few months, we were ultimately able to visit.  The restaurant is inviting without a hint of pretense, setting up the counter at the front of the location. When one puts in their order, they are greeted with a number of proteins (Spicy and normal variants of Chicken Teriyaki, Beef Teriyaki, Orange Chicken, Chicken Katsu, and Tofu Teriyaki). Whether one purchases a bowl or a plate, Teriyaki Madness offers a wide variety of starch options, including white and brown rice. Noodles and fried rice are also available for a small addition to the cost. Stir-fry veggies are available as a side for bowls, while a plate can have the veggies, macaroni salad, or fresh green salad.12196352_10103845003973244_2220262248171069329_n

Teriyaki Madness’ menu is rounded out with yakisoba noodle dishes (Chicken, Beef, or Tofu) and a variety of starch-free options. For those with children, the restaurant also offers smaller-sized bowls for children. Appetizers are also available at Teriyaki Madness with a list including shrimp tempura, chicken eggrolls, chicken potstickers, and crab Rangoon.

The entrees have a surprising amount of meat present, with a near-equal amount of noodles which line the bottom of the bowl. The bowl is rounded out with a variety of veggies (cabbage, broccoli, onions, zucchini and carrots). We evaluated the Chicken Katsu which is a lightly-breaded chicken filet. The entrée comes with a cup of sauce that spices up the traditional teriyaki offering. We found ourselves eagerly drizzling the sauce over the plate.12243235_10103845003933324_7272224497833115730_n

The Spicy Chicken Teriyaki is a high water point for Teriyaki Madness, as the chicken is cooked perfectly. The meat is juicy while having enough of a crust to pop in one’s mouth, while the spiced sauce adds a good amount of heat to the plate. For those that have more of a hunger, Teriyaki Madness offers a plate option with over ½ pound of meat. Teriyaki Madness’s personalization makes it easy to create something different each time they make it into the store.12208545_10103845004088014_7682518564408828477_n
