Excellent Japanese food in Nowhere, North Carolina
Serendipity is the term for accidentally discovering something good, especially while looking for something else.
Back in 2007 we got off the highway to fill the gas tank and give the dog a pee break on our drive back to CT from FL, and had a spectacular serendipitous meal in a shopping center/office park that seemed to be in the middle of nowhere.
Iron Grill Japanese Express
125 Trade Court, Suite F, (Mooresville Gateway)
Mooresville, NC 28117. (704) 662-3797
Off Route 21, Exit 33 from Interstate 77.
Eat in or take out. Chicken, steak, shrimp, salads. Absolutely delicious. Reasonably priced. Big portions. Boss is Chinese. Cooks are Latinos. It didn't hurt.
Probably the best ginger salad dressing I've ever had. Teriyaki sauce was perfect -- not too sweet or too gloppy. Strangely, no miso soup on menu. Entrees come with strange shrimp sauce I never had before. Wife loved it. I didn't. Near gorgeous Lake Norman, and a real Jack-in-the-Box for great greasy tacos. Good shopping. Clean air. 30 miles from Charlotte. I'm ready to move.
