Crazy for Teriyaki Madness: Teriyaki Bowls, Noodles, and More
Jul 08, 2019 11:47AM
My daughter is an extremely picky eater. We are talking mac and cheese, chicken nuggets, and desserts. That is what she will eat. The other night she cried because I made her eat rice. When we went to Teriyaki Madness she happily ate her noodles and orange chicken. She said, “I can’t resist it. It’s so yummy.” And we had to buy a second orange chicken bowl with noodles. That is how delicious the food is at Teriyaki Madness.
You may have noticed the sign for Teriyaki Madness. It is located right between Papa Murphy's and Jimmy John’s in front of the VASA fitness in Spanish Fork. I know that it is always tricky when you see a new place because you aren’t sure what they have or if it is any good. Luckily, I can go for you and check it out. And let me tell you, Teriyaki Madness is pretty dang delicious and worth a try.
The thing that I love most about Teriyaki Madness is that you can customize the whole menu. Are you doing a KETO diet, leave out the carbs. Are you vegan? All veggies and rice. Gluten free? Rice, meat, and veggies. They even have gluten-free sauces.
You chose your base: rice, brown rice, noodles, fried rice, or all veggies. Then you choose your protein: chicken, beef, or tofu. Then you choose your flavor: teriyaki, spicy, etc.
Everything is made fresh to order. So you don’t have to worry about the food being made hours before sitting under the heat lamps. You know how disappointing it is when you order some food but it has been sitting under the heat lamps all day so it is dry and the sauce is gone. At Teriyaki Madness they get the woks hot and prepare it right then so it is fresh.
Ok. Let’s talk about the menu items. I started out with the chicken pot stickers. They were perfectly crispy on the outside with piping hot filling with chicken and veggies. The first bite was amazing because of the crunch combined with the amazing gyoza dipping sauce which was the perfect blend of savory and sweet.
My kids got the infamous orange chicken with noodles and they devoured it. The orange chicken was delicious and not spicy at all (a huge requirement for my kids). It was breaded chicken with a yummy sauce similar to what you would get you would get at a Chinese restaurant. The noodles were delicious and I’m sure it would also be yummy with rice.
My husband was brave and got the spicy chicken. It definitely had some heat to it. It was a little spicy for me but if you like spice, you will love it.
I got the beef teriyaki and I was blown away. I’m always nervous to get any type of beef because I worry about it being tough. These beef was just tender and so flavorful. It was sweet and just delicious. I didn’t want to share with anyone. I drizzled a little bit of the teriyaki sauce on it and just savored every bite of it with my noodles and veggies. I honestly had to ask the manager how they make it so tender. He says the marinade takes a day to make and then they marinate the meat for another day.
The chicken teriyaki also had great flavor. It was grilled chicken which was perfectly cooked and it even had the grill marks. They offer chicken katsu and yakisoba noodles as well but I wasn’t able to try them during this visit.
We also got a cup of macaroni salad. It was Hawaiian style and had veggies and chicken in it. It had a great flavor. My son was expecting macaroni and cheese though so he wasn’t a fan. But I got to eat it and it complimented my beef teriyaki perfectly.
So if you want a break from your normal routine, check out Teriyaki Madness. I’m sure that you will find something that you love.
Teriyaki Madness is open Monday to Saturday from 11 am to 9 pm and Sunday from 11 am to 8 pm. It is located at 788 N 800 E, Spanish Fork, UT 84660.
