Good teriyaki chicken – a small teriyaki chicken and rice from Taka (AU$5.30, Barrack Street, Perth) – tender, moist skin-on chicken with perfectly clumped rice that was a pleasure to eat with chopsticks. Eating this was sheer pleasure. I just wished I’d bought the large size.
Bad teriyaki chicken – teriyaki chicken and rice from Sushi@Royal (AU$8.00, Royal Street, East Perth) – disappointingly dry chunks of chicken with rice that refused to be picked up with chopsticks. Eating this was… frustrating. I wished I’d packed a bento lunch that day.
