Today, in his ongoing series “United Tastes,” my clever colleague John T. Edge — the award-winning columnist, author, raconteur and director of the Southern Foodways Alliance — introduced New York Times readers to one of Seattle’s worst-kept secrets: our lust for teriyaki.
John T. (yes, that’s his name — he’s from the South!) is not the first to examine Seattle’s teriyaki fast-food-fanaticism, nor is he likely to be the last, but his extensive reportage is worth examining, so give it a read right here. Then tell me this: What’s your favorite teriyaki-stop?
You haven’t lived till you’ve shared a laugh — and a story — with John T. Edge, seen here in Seattle last month taking a break from teriyaki to check out the Danish pastries at Nielsen’s. And yes, he loved those Snitters.
