Seattle’s Sweet Teriyaki Sauce
Teriyaki: sweet! Sticky! Born not in Japan, but right here, in Seattle! That’s right — the thick, saccharine grilling glaze you know and love is hardly a Japanese creation.

Can teriyaki — the go-to budget eats of Seattle’s grungy past — survive in the city’s glossy future? We went there to find out.
