    This was the first time I saw Porthos in Teriyaki, and so I jumped right in. Porthos are an outstanding Portugese Pilchard, great quality fish in the tins. The Teriyaki flavor was no different. This tin took me right back to when I was living in Japan, and from time to time breakfast would include a fish, served cold, in teriyaki.

    The flavor was sweet, a little smoky, and just a hint of the fishiness of the sardine that reminded you of what you were eating. The sauce really soaked into the flesh of the fish.

    Overall, another fantastic offering from Porthos.

    Solid 4 star tin. Teriyaki sauce can be a tricky thing to get right but Porthos didn’t let me down. The sauce was very good and should appeal to almost everyone, but did get a little one-note by the end of the tin. I added some scallion and chili crisp to mine and it helped to wake things up a bit. For me, this will be an occasional buy to mix things up but probably not a regular item – I tend to eat at room temp from the can, and this begs for a little more than that. Warmed up over rice, I bet this could be a 5 star experience. If you’re the kind of person who regularly plans meals / side dishes to accompany your tins, then this could really be something special for you.

    The teriyaki sauce was delicious–not too sweet, nice and tangy. The fish were a little dry, but flavorful. I agree with other reviewers that it’s probably better warmed up.
