Need a tasty, quick meal in the Cordelia area featuring homemade sauces and fresh goods?
Teriyaki Madness may be for you.
Featuring lean meats cut in-house, fresh vegetables, white and brown rice (and fried rice) as well as noodles and tofu, there’s something for everything.
Just off Interstate 80 at 251 Pittman Road, about a hop, skip and a jump from Solano Community College, Teriyaki Madness is conveniently located near a tap room and Jersey Mike’s.
The Colorado-based Asian grill is just one of two in the Bay Area, the other located in Hayward.
Food here is customizable — pick a bowl or a plate, a foundation (white, fried or brown rice; vegetables; or noodles), a protein (chicken, beef or tofu) and veggies already come with the meal. Plates come with a choice of veggies, green salad or macaroni salad.
There’s appetizers including chicken potstickers and eggrolls, edamame and rangoons.
And don’t forget the sauces — there’s nine kinds, all made in-house.
On a recent day, local media outlets were allowed the opportunity to taste the goodies.
Our favorites included the spicy chicken, which includes 6-8 ounces of chicken depending on whether you order a plate or bowl, and an amazing, thick sauce that’s slightly sweet and spicy at the same time.
The beef teriyaki was also amazing, as the meat is marinated at least 12 hours before cooking, spokespeople said.
The chicken teriyaki was also tasty and the yakisoba noodles cooked just right.
The accompanying vegetables were crisp, the edamame nicely salted, the eggroll huge and filling, and the potstickers crisp and soft at the same time.
Owner Jaspreet Singh, a Solano resident who graduated from Napa Valley College, California State University, Sacramento and Brandman University, expressed pride in the eatery.
“This is my first business,” he said.
A former employee at Popeye’s and the food department at Kaiser Permanente, Singh said he knows the importance of good food.
“Nothing is sitting under the lamp,” he emphasized. “We make it fresh, when it’s ordered.”
Prices range from $7.99-$8.49 for a bowl and $9.79-$10.49 for a plate.
Appetizers range from $1.99-$4.69.
