Dinner With Bloggers at Yoshinoya

Last Wednesday we enjoyed a sumptuous feast at Yoshinoya located at the Upper Ground Floor, Bldg. A, SM Mega Mall. It was not my first time to taste the dishes from Yoshinoya. It was one of the places where my wife and I had lunch once or twice after picking her up from a Bible study at Christ's Commission Fellowship.

My wife and I both love Japanese food and Yoshinoya is also not the only Japanese restaurant that we have tried. But what sets this Japanese fast food from the others is that they have been in the Japanese food business for a very long time - 112 years. They are very popular in Japan and have become well known for their Beef Gyudon rice bowl and the fact that they do not serve raw seafood unlike most Japanese restaurants.

Yoshinoya's Gyoza

Another side dish from Yoshinoya, fried chicken and coleslaw

I enjoyed all the food that I tried which were the following: Gyoza, fried chicken with coleslaw, a jumbo meal called Jumbo B which has Beef Gyudon and Beef Yakiniku, rice and mongo sprouts), a refreshing glass of Apple Green tea for my drinks and Coffee Jelly for dessert. I was able to finish everything that was served and was so full after. I felt that I've gained weight and would need to look for cheap adipex to get my weight back.

Yoshinoya's Jumbo meal has three variants, Jumbo A, B and C: (A) chicken teriyaki, (B) beef yakiniku and (C) ebi tempura, each combined with beef gyudon, rice and mongo sprouts. The photo above is Jumbo C

Seriously, I had a great time and I enjoyed their food. I did notice, too, that they have improved the interior design of their restaurant which looked less of a fast food and almost close to a Japanese fine dining restaurant, except for the usual fast food tables and chairs. But, overall, Yoshinoya is a great Japanese fast food alternative. Thanks to Yoshinoya and Rowena for the lovely treat.
