Sarku Japan located in Kenwood Mall’s food court beckoned me one afternoon, thus I accepted and gave it a shot. Bad decision. First off, let’s get this squared way, I don’t regret eating there; it wasn’t horrible, just painfully average. They were schilling chicken teriyaki, but I, ever the adventurer, opted for beef and shrimp teriyaki. The crew working wasn’t nice or rude to me, in fact; they rather ignored me altogether, insisting on yelling at passerby in high voices nonstop. The drink? They talked me into a large, which was in a huge translucent plastic cup, and contained 95% Coke and 5% ice… that wasn’t a ratio I was very pleased with. The food? Let’s just say it was entirely too forgettable. The beef was of no discernible origin. It could have been any animal, for all I knew, as it was chewy, tasteless, and in thin slivers. The shrimp wasn’t bad; and both the rice and steamed vegetables were edible yet bland. The final result wasn’t a tragedy, yet certainly a flawed lunch.
