The newly opened Teriyaki Madness in Wallhaven combines two national trends in food: fast casual and Asian cuisine.
“As soon as we tasted the food, we realized that there wasn’t really anything like this in Akron,” says co-owner Matthew Lee, who refers to the menu here as “West Coast style” teriyaki.
He says the food is fresh and never frozen and the restaurant makes its own teriyaki sauce, which may be purchased separately. “All of our sauces are made in-house,” Lee says. “We make about seven different types of sauces.”
Additionally, the food at Teriyaki Madness is made to order and employees do not use heat lamps, he adds. Most popular dishes include chicken teriyaki and spicy teriyaki.
The business is located at 1 N. Hawkins Ave. in Akron. Visit teriyakimadness.com for more info.
