ABQ - Teriyaki Chicken (Downtown) becomes Asian Pear

thewongmann | Jan 12, 201511:49 AM

The owners of Teriyaki Chicken in downtown near 5th and Central have switched names, menu, and paint and have reopened as Asian Pear.

Gone are the stale Americanized Japanese and Americanized Chinese lunch plates with a focus more on more authentic (but palateable to non-Korean audiences) Korean fare. Menu is now almost exclusively Korean with bulgogi (marinated beef) and daeji gogi (spicy pork) plates along with bibimbop and Korean style ramen. Prices still at reasonable lunch time rates of $6.49-7.99.

I ate a combo of bulgogi and daeji gogi which was definitely cooked more fresh and plated much nicer than when it was just a side menu item. It also came with some banchan (side dishes) of cooked bean sprouts and picked onion slices. Albeit it's nothing as good as what I'd eat in California, it's still pretty good and a bargain for lunch!
