 Gyudon Come Back 2/11

Yoshinoya's Comeback

I warned you it was coming, the day the Yoshinoya beef bowl returned. Well it came and went but the left pocket and I were there! You bet we filled our pockets with a fair share of the gyudon. Only thing is we had to wait in this line. Crazy people! In the cold!

I think we waited more than an hour. At first I saw a couple people eating inside but when I asked the employee who was taking orders at the entrance he said mochikaeri, take-out, only. While in line we looked at cars passing by, tried to keep our hands warm, and when I wasn't taking pictures we did a lot of heebie-jeebie dancing to keep as warm as possible.

Kids, grandmas, moms and dads, most people were getting the maximum four gyudon per person limit. The price was 300yen for nami, regular size, and 400yen for oomori, big size. They weren't selling any other main items on their menu but you could get salad and miso soup. I got the last plain salad (only 90yen)!

Before you MouseOver the gyudon and salad picture, beware, gyudon is not pretty, especially when half-eaten!

Can you believe this was my first Yoshinoya gyudon ever? I was surprised by the yummy taste, which is salty rather than sweet like Sukiya's gyudon. What I liked about Yoshinoya was the large pieces of onion because they stood out. I don't usually notice Sukiya's onions because they must be boiled down more. However I like Sukiya's gyudon more overall because their meat is a lot less fatty and they pour more sauce over the rice.

Seize the food, for Japan is time-service only! In other words, this blog is to preserve, share, and make the most of my six months left living in Japan. Yes, I am obsessed with food. Cheap food!

Life is short so I eat fast, lest it get cold or disappear. I'm currently teaching English in Japan for two years. I was born and raised in California, and will be returning there in Summer 2005. I was ovo-lacto-vegetarian for about seven years but decided to let it go during second year in Japan!
