New Japanese Donburi Restaurant on Robson St.

CheapAppetite Aug 31, 2009 09:23 PM

New Japanese restaurant called Donburiya just opened today. It locates next to Don Guacamole on Robson (1329 Robson). 5 menu items to choose from now. Small bowl $5.50, Big Bowl $6.50. On Sept 10, there will be 5 more noodle soups to choose from. From now til Sept 10, you will get free miso with your order.

I'll write a review about it soon. In the meantime, you can check it out for yourself.

Enjoy and Cheap Appetit

        A co-worker had the mapo tofu donburi takeout today. She said it was spicier than she expected, thinking maybe a Japanese place would make it less spicy. She seemed to like it.

      Here's my short review summary:
      After a couple visits to this restaurant, I really like the Buta-Mayo Don (Gingered pork stir fried on rice). The dish comes with mayo streaks on top of the pork which looks really yummy. The taste was good but I wish the ginger flavor was a bit more intense. I'm also impressed with the speed of the food. Great for lunch in a hurry. I literally got my order in a minute. The service is above average compare to your typical self-service restaurants.

      You can read the more comprehensive review and view photos from my blog.

      Enjoy and Cheap Appetit:)
