Teriyaki (kanji: ç…§ã‚Šç„¼ã; hiragana: ã¦ã‚Šã‚„ã) is a cooking technique used in Japanese cuisine, wherein the foodstuffs are broiled or grilled in a sweet soy sauce marinade (tare in Japanese). Fishâ€”yellowtail, marlin, skipjack tuna, salmon, trout, and mackerelâ€”is the primary ingredient used in Japan, whereas meatâ€”chicken meat, pork, and beefâ€”is preferred in the West. Other ingredients that may be used in Japan include konjac and squid.
The 2001 book Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser criticizes Subway‘s franchising policies. It claims that in the 1990s, Subway was involved in many legal disputes with franchisees, usually over encroachment (overly aggressive expansion, in which two restaurants are so close in location that they end up competing with one another) and high royalties. The DFNV (German Franchisee organization) is very critical of Subway’s franchise conditions.
