One of our family’s favorite places to eat has always been Yoshinoya. It’s quick, all-natural, reasonably priced, and yummy! I actually made it a point to have at least one meal in Yoshinoya when we went to Japan some years back just to see if the Gyudon Beef Bowl tastes the same… and it does!
We’re so happy with Yoshinoya’s Beef Bowl that we haven’t really checked the menu for other food items. I was so surprised when they whipped out this Japanese Fried Chicken (P80, pictured above) during the Bloggers’ Event last Wednesday night at Yoshinoya SM Megamall. Large pieces of extra crunchy chicken wings are served with a side salad and vinegar-based sauce. It’s just scrumptious, in fact I like it a whole lot better than the fried chicken most fast-food joints serve.
- Jumbo Plate A – Gyudon + Chicken Teriyaki
- Jumbo Plate B – Gyudon + Beef Yakiniku
- Jumbo Plate C – Gyudon + Ebi Tempura
My hubby always orders Jumbo Plate C, while I prefer the Jumbo Plate B (pictured above) since I always have a hard time making up my mind whether to have Gyudon Beef or Beef Yakiniku. That way, I can have both! 😀
Yoshinoya’s Skewers (P35 per stick, pictured above) is another surprise. I didn’t know they had this on the menu. You can choose between lobster balls or prawn balls. The sauce is on the salty side though… I think this can still be improved.
Yoshinoya’s Strawberry Mousse (P35, pictured above) is the perfect way to end a hearty and delicious meal. I was amazed by how it stayed nice and cold despite the fact that I ate it well more than 30 minutes after it was set on the table. There’s a bottom layer made of crushed chocolate cookies, a middle layer of tingly strawberry mousse, and a top layer of whipped cream and candy sprinkles. Mmmm…!
