Soy[edit]

Why is the "soy" bar on this page? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.195.137.76 (talk) 18:35, 2 March 2008 (UTC)

Soy sauce is the primary component of teriyaki sauce. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.11.36.165 (talk) 20:25, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Teriyaki not from Japan[edit]

My Japanese teacher told us that Teriyaki was not made from Japan, she said Teriyaki is made in America and if you to Japan you could find Teriyaki but it's not orgialnated from there. Is this true? Lf2074 (talk) 19:22, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

I've worked as an English teacher for hundreds of Japanese people. They are bewildered when they visit the USA and an American attempts to offer "teriyaki" as a "Japanese food". Their universal reaction is "huh? what?". I strongly suspect that teriyaki is a non-Japanese invention that masquerades as a Japanese food. I suspect it has no native tradition whatsoever in Japan. That would explain why teriyaki is a foreign food to native Japanese people, and many of them have never even heard of it. Note the utter lack of credible sources (citations) in the wikipedia article. As it stands now, I think the article misleads the reader. The article might be improved by telling that teriyaki is a kind of false Japanese food. I wonder who invented it, when, where, and why. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.133.243.117 (talk) 15:43, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

This article states that American teriyaki was developed somewhere between 1920 and 1954 by Japanese-Americans in Hawai'i from the sauce used in a method (called teriyaki) of grilling marinaded fish. --69.166.47.133 (talk) 00:24, 27 April 2011 (UTC)

The English Wikipedia article is almost identical to the Japanese Wikipedia article: Japanese wikipedia article (translated by Google) I suppose the Japanese know their food. Unless the Japanese article was translated from the English article... -- megA (talk) 14:20, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Teriyaki (terr-yaki)was invented by Japanese-American cooks in Hawai'i. My family discoverd this when we lives there from 1955-1958. Mom always made Teriyaki bugers, with croutons in the ground beef, even on the mainland. They are better if marinated 24 hours.70.162.46.94 (talk) 00:17, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

You're spreading rumors. Get some facts or don't bother. Chinese cuisine has used teriyaki-like sauces for a long time. I believe Hosking points that out in his book. Kortoso (talk) 18:49, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

Growing up in Hawaii, I have never heard that teriyaki originates from Hawaii. Teriyaki was created in Japan in the 17th century during the Edo period and is one of 3 major styles of cooking that came from that period, the other two being yakitori and sukiyaki. Teriyaki was created as a method of cooking fish, which is why you do not see chicken or beef teriyaki in Japan. The method of cooking chicken is Yakitori which means grilled bird and the method of cooking beef is called sukiyaki (derived from sukimi - yaki which means grilled thin sliced meat). Teriyaki sauce is also from Japan and the reason that you can not find teriyaki sauce in Japan is because that is not its proper name. The correct name for mixing soy sauce, sake and sugar is warishita. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.5.174.211 (talkcontribs) 14 September 2015 (UTC)
