As promised, here's my first entry to the Cheap Eats Near School category!
Meet my current favorite, Glaze Teriyaki. Located at 139 4th Ave, just 6 mins walk from my building and 3 mins walk from Union Square, this is my go-to place whenever I'm craving for a quick, satisfying Asian meal which consist mostly with rice, protein and vegetables. In fact, I went here more than 3 times already, but often without proper gear (a.k.a cameras) so I only have few photos right now. Will update again soon.
Their menu is pretty simple, basically they only serve Charcoal-grilled Teriyaki meal with additional choice of side dishes. First you choose your meat, pick from Chicken Breast, Chicken Thigh, Salmon, Hanger Steak, Soy-marinated Tofu, Wok Vegetables or Boneless Pork Loin. Second, choose whether you're going to have White or Brown Rice. Third, pick a salad dressing: Sesame, Carrot Ginger or gluten free Honey Lemon. For full menu you can see it here.
Glaze Teriyaki claims that most of their menu is gluten free, also meaning that the boneless and skinless meat & fish being used are all natural and antibiotic free. All the more reason for me to eat there, because I feel it's healthier than any other lunch I've had during the first month. Haha!
I'll keep coming here regularly, now that I know that they actually offer 10% discount if you show your Student ID. Argh how can I be so stupid for not asking during all four visits.
