I don’t go to the mall that often, only when I need to get some clothes or pickup a new video game or something like that. I have lived in the North Hills area all of my life so the mall that I would always go to is Ross Park Mall. I’ve seen it go through a lot of changes, but for as long as I can remember Sakkio Japan has been there. I think every other place in the food court has changed at least 1 time if not more. I had not been to Sakkio Japan in a long time so I decided to get it again for a quick lunch while I was at the mall.
When most people think of Japanese food at the mall they think pre-cooked food in bins that you pick from. Sakkio Japan is totally different from that, you pick what you want and they cook it right in front of you. Sakkio Japan does not have a lot on their menu. From what I remember they have teriyaki vegetables, teriyaki chicken, teriyaki beef, and I believe you can add shrimp to any one of those. I ordered the teriyaki beef and added shrimp. With any order you can choose regular rice or fried rice, I got the fried rice. The total for that with a drink was around $8.
Just like all of the other times I have eaten at Sakkio Japan the food was great and filling. No wonder the place has been there forever! This tells you something about any business if you do something good and the right way you will always have customers. Also it is not often that you are at a mall and can get food cooked right in front of you. There are many Sakkio Japan’s located in mall, stadiums, etc so if you see one check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
