    Tokyo Chuou-ku Tsukiji 4-9-12
    This restaurant's signature dish is its horumon-don ricebowl topped with slow-stewed horumon, a type of cuisine made with offal. Kitsuneya's popularity has even led it to being featured on television. Stewed in rich miso, the shop's horumon, served piled high, is tender, plump, and free of off flavors. Opening early in the morning, Kitsuneya is also a perfect place to have breakfast or to conclude a very long night of drinking.

    When we saw the line circling the entire block, we got curious and thats how we managed to find Kitsunaya. Supposed to be fusion Korean-Japanese, beef stew or Sypkudo Ramen are very flavorful...

    Fukui Pref. Tsurugashi Aioichou 2-7
    Yo-Roppaken is the restaurant that, back in 1913, created the first “Sosu Katsudon” (a bowl of rice with a breaded and fried pork cutlet on top, served with Worcestershire sauce), the result of intensive experimentation by the restaurant owner (who had encountered Worcestershire sauce while working in Germany) to develop cuisine using Worcestershire sauce that would appeal to Japanese palates; today, “Sosu Katsudon” is a famous Fukui specialty dish. Other popular dishes at Yo-Roppaken include Pari Don (which uses menchi-katsu—a fried cake of minced meat—instead of a pork cutlet) and Shrimp Don. Yo-Roppaken is located around eight-minute drive from JR Tsuruga Station.

    Hokkaido Obihiroshi Nishinijuichijouminami 3-5
    Tokachi Butadon Ippin is a specialist Buta Don restaurant located on Shinroku Street, around 15 minutes’ drive from Obihiro Station. The restaurant’s pork portions are substantial but tender, with a slightly sweet flavor to the fat. Carefully selected Japanese pork tenderloin (backstrap) is grilled using only the best Bincho-tan charcoal (made from Ubame oak wood); to avoid spoiling the natural flavors of the ingredients, the specially-made sauce is prepared without heating it. Diners can specify how much rice and how much pork they want, as well as the size of the pork portions and the amount of sauce to be added. Besides the Obihiro flagship store, there are five other Tokachi Butadon Ippin branches in Sapporo City offering the same outstanding charcoal grill taste.

    Ippin is the most delicious butadons store in Obihiro. So, the store is very popular, so you may have to wait in line. The store is famous for sauce. It is very good taste. You can select volume.

Sides include “Doug’s tuna salad,” which is prepared with albacore tuna. The menu features many dishes that use local ingredients and can’t be found anywhere else. All items are free of preservatives, artificial coloring, and chemical additives.

    ok quality burger but i feel it was overpriced for its quality. I wouldnt go there again because there are better options on the island.
