Yoshinoya Beef Bowl

I had gyudon (牛丼, also known as a “beef bowl”) yesterday at Yoshinoya. It was heavenly! For those who don’t know, it’s a bowl of rice served with strips of beef on top of it. Right now Yoshinoya (or at least the branch I went to) is having a “80 yen off” sale. So I got a large for 400 yen. They have three sizes, normal, large, and extra large. I think I’ll try the extra large the next time I go. :D The 80 yen-off sale is ’till the 21st. More photos in the January 18th gallery.

    I’m just reading through your blog since I missed it until now. I remember when I lived in Japan that Matsuya and Yoshinoya were great places to stop. The food was surprisingly good, cheap, and I loved the vending machine ordering system that they used. Did you get a ticket from a vending machine to order your food? I thought that was so efficient and I’ve often wished that McDonald’s would implement the same system here.

    No, there’s no ticket vending machine at Yoshinoya. At least not at the one I go to. There was one at a ramen place I ate at in Tokyo during my trip over the break between semesters, however. ^_^ I wish we could have that system back home in some places as well. It’s very convenient. n.n
