There is secret customize system.

You can choose the amount of rice, slice beef and soup to eat.

You can adjust Gyu-don to your appetite, favorite taste.


This is how to say when you want to customize.

When you order Gyu-don, You should also say this word.


Tsuyudaku means more soup than normal.

So, If you order like this, You will get Gyudon with lots of soups.

It mean you will only get Beef more and keep rice normal amount.

It mean that you can get Gyu-don without soup.

If you don’t like soup, and prefer to eat just beef with rice.

This is for you.

If you order this, The Gyu-don would come to you as up side down.

I mean the rice would be up and Beef would be under the rice.

Matsuya (松屋)

What the biggest different between Yoshinoya and Matsuya is

if you can have miso soup as free.

If you go to Matsuya and order something, then,

You will get a free miso soup!!

For me, It’s very important! since I’m Japanese who is miso soup lover!!

You might get hangover after weekends then,

you will want to have some salty food.

This would be one of option!!


Go to Matsuya and get free miso soup!

and Ofcurse, There is Gyu-don and others which are quite similar to Yoshinoya. 

I think you don’t have to worry about which one is best beef.

In my opinion, both are same.



Here is the price below.

So, This sukiya and two other, We used to call BIG3.

Nowadays, We have lots of type of Donburi chain in Japan

much more than past 10 years.


But Sukiya still has big share in Japan.

When I think about sukiya, I will remember Gyu-don right which has tofu instead of rice.


It is so much healthy!

I would recommend it when you want to eat rightly.

There are so many menu and toppings which is cheese, spring onions, egg…

You can customize as much as you want!
