Kobeyaki is Worth Going to for the Condiments Alone
Last week we put out a call out for new lunchers. Here’s a report from one of our potential new contributors, Jarret…
Kobeyaki (on 40th & 6th) has quickly become one of my all time favorite Midtown lunch establishments. While I often end up spending a little more than the ML limit ($13), I am never left disappointed. I like to mix it up between one of their burgers or buns, but I always order a side of the sweet potato tempura fries. What really makes Kobeyaki stand out, however, is their selection of sauces. They offer teriyaki ketchup, wasabi mayo, spicy mayo and plenty of sriracha. If you thought it couldn’t get any better, it can – not only do they offer all of these sauces, but they put them out in dispensers for sauce-loving lunchers like myself to overindulge in. As you can see, they offer plenty of containers for patrons to fill up with the sauce(s) of their choice. A few times, I have found a particular sauce empty, and upon notifying an employee, the sauce is refilled within minutes – impressive.
While I enjoy all of their options, the combination of the sweet potato fries with the teriyaki ketchup is absolutely perfect – I really believe they’ve mastered the teriyaki to ketchup ratio. So, if you are like myself and believe a good condiment can take a meal to the next level then venture to Kobeyaki and bask in the greatness that lies across from the main counter, adjacent to the soda machine, that I like to refer to as – Sauce Paradise.
