During one of my solo excursions to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, I stopped by Hanami in Japan. If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you’re likely aware that I’m not a fan of Teriyaki sauce, while Matt would probably drink it if it was socially acceptable. I ordered the Teriyaki Curry Bun on my own free will, and really liked it. I wasn’t sure how Matt would take to it, however, since the sweet Teriyaki flavor was more of a background note.
Because it’s an interesting festival option, Matt wanted to give it a try. The chicken in this dish is at the forefront, nestled in a steamed, slightly sweet, chewy bun.
Overall, Matt liked it, but he noted what I anticipated: he wished there was more Teriyaki flavor over the curry. I gave it a taste, and it was just like when I had originally tried it. The curry flavor is more pronounced over the Teriyaki, but it’s far from what I consider might be overwhelming. It’s definitely worth a try at Hanami.
Here is a look at my original tasting of the Teriyaki Curry Bun:
