Yoshinoya! a family favorite

/ / in , / / Edit


i've been meaning to create a post entirely dedicated to my favorite fast casual restaurant, Yoshinoya, but it always gets hammered into my daily rants. i also almost called it a fast food restaurant, but it's all too clean and not too un-healthy looking to be called such, plus my sister confirmed that it isn't a fast food resto, the way main courses are made to order and all. okay. enough.

i must say, Yoshinoya has been a family favorite since yeaaars back before they decided to put on brighter orange walls, and totally eliminate free red ginger from the condiments area (sucks). i'm happy for the big changes they've been up to, only shows how they're growing bigger and bigger! yeyy! at least i'm assured they won't be gone, like my almost favorite italian restaurant Bigoli.

anyway, things just got better when they opened a branch at Fairview Terraces! that means more yoshi sunday lunches for meee!



as for my favorites, this is how it always goes for me:


 chicken teriyaki bowl, miso soup, 2 servings of red ginger, and green tea

my favorite. the chicken teriyaki is very flavorful and the contrasting steamed vegetables go along with it so well. the rice is sticky and yummy, it may look a lot for a bowl but it's more than enough to fill. you couldn't go wrong with this! all for 200 pesos, or 190 cos you can actually just ask for red ginger from the service crew, and that's a tip from the cashier herself. hehe <3

i've never really tried any other major course, aside from my sister's usual gyudon bowl and the occasional katsudon (which are booooth yummy) kasi i'm loyal to my combo. hahaha

anyway, here's a gyudon bowl:


it literally translates to beef bowl and has soy sauce marinated beef strips on top of steaming rice! it's worth php 119 and is the favorite of my sister, my dad, and my boyfriend. haha



i love their bowls. i thought we could apply this at home, you know, eating on bowls haha. i find it easier to wash bowls cos it's easier to hold haha wala lang.

if you haven't tried eating here, i urge you to try it! the food is great, the prices are affordable, and the ambience is bright and cool. although the bright orange walls don't give off much of the japanese resto feel (most japanese restos are full of blacks kasi), the food will! plus the service crews are dressed in kimono uniforms so there's more 'feel' points to it haha.

so far, Yoshinoya has the following branches at metro manila: SM North Edsa, Ayala Fairview Terraces, SM Megamall, Robinsons Galeria, Glorietta, SM Mall of Asia, and SM Manila.... aaand i'm proud to say i've eaten in 6 (out of 7) of them! talk about loyal! haha >XD
