LORELAI: I thought you were gonna go antiquing.
RORY: Yeah we did. And then we had lunch.
LORELAI: Oh, really? Where?
EMILY: Teriyaki Joe’s.
Teriyaki Joe’s is yet another of the restaurants in Stars Hollow that we never hear about again. Teriyaki is a Japanese cuisine style where meat and fish are grilled over a barbecue plate and marinated or sauteed in a sweet and spicy sauce. Originally developed in the 17th century by Japanese cooks, teriyaki cuisine became popular in the US during the 1990s.
