Yoshinoya:the biggest japanese beef bowl chain just opened

  • a

42nd st & 8th ave.Just opened today.The biggest & most popular japanese beef bowl chain.This is the 1000th anniversary shop.If you've been to Yoshinoya in japan and never been to Yoshinoya in US(pretty popular in LA),you'll be a bit surprised.The shop looks different(no counter)and they have the teriyaki chicken and the veg bowl(never served in japan).In general,the beef bowl tastes a little sweeter than it's the japanese version.Stick with the simple beef's good,only if the rice wasn't too mushy.The price is $4 ish.
