Shakey's Mojo Potatoes

When I was younger my family lived in Japan for a few years. One of the things my sister and I really liked to do with our friends was to go to take the train to Machida where they had really cool shops where we would get ID bracelets made and we would have lunch at Shakey's Pizza. We learned to love the pizza with corn on it that the Japanese eat. We never got into the squid pizza though. One of my favorite things at Shakey's was their potatoes. I know a little weird for a pizza place, but so so good. I tried this recipe that I found online for Shakey's Mojo Potatoes. They're not really like Shakey's ones but they were a delicious potato side dish.
