Flatiron Foodies: wagamama's Chicken Teriyaki Donburi

The food at wagamama, located at 210 Fifth Avenue, is inspired by the flavors of Japan, and it's intended to soothe, nourish, sustain, and inspire. The inventive restaurant offers curry, donburi, teppanyaki, and ramen, along with salads, sides, and fresh pressed juices. Executive Chef Steven Mangleshot says, "Our Chicken Teriyaki Donburi dish is a favorite of mine because it's the ultimate comfort food with great flavors. There's the kick from the teriyaki to dress up the chicken, a bed of rice to grab every last drop, and then the crunch of the veggies to provide those different textures."
