Placerville may be a small town, but if it had anything to say for itself, it would rave about its grand appetite and unique appreciation for food.
The regulars at Teriyaki Junction can attest to this—myself being one of many who walk in hungry and out exceptionally pleased. Seeking out a dish filled with flavor, I ordered the Noodle Combo—a four-meat meal featuring chicken, beef slices, shrimp and scallops. Mixed with the meat were sliced mushrooms, cabbage, broccoli, carrots, bean sprouts, sesame seeds and a plethora of noodles. Cooked in soy and teriyaki sauces, the meal had a slightly liquid texture. From the pairing of ingredients to taste, texture and presentation, this meal was perfect. Situated in a popular area, the small size and cozy feel of the eatery contributed to the enjoyment of my teriyaki lunch. Before I knew it, my bowl was empty…the single most important sign of a meal fully enjoyed. The locals may not know just how fortunate they are to have a little taste of Japan right around the corner. Teriyaki Junction, 1216 Broadway, Suite B, Placerville, 530-295-1413.
