Bowl o’ noodles

Chicken Noodle Bowl, Teriyaki To Go

I had my absolute favorite dish when I was a teenager at this little short-order teriyaki joint in the middle of a Citrus Heights strip mall. I would eventually eat noodles all over the world and compare Teriyaki To Go’s perfect noodles to others that are limp in comparison. The Chicken Noodle Bowl ($8.95) is a huge serving of thick, chewy, doughy noodles and generous morsels of tender chicken with a comforting, sweet umami teriyaki spice that’s unlike any other. Pro tip: ask for spicy without vegetables and add three scoops of the housemade, secret recipe teriyaki sauce and get lost in a sea of slurpable, heartwarming goodness. 5439 Sunrise Blvd., Citrus Heights.
