Stadon Pork Bowl at Mitsuwa until 11/24 [San Jose]
A Japanese chain called Densetsu No Sutadonya is at Mitsuwa in San Jose until 11/24 selling their most popular dish - stadon donburi, which is apparently thinly sliced pork with garlic soy sauce. Around $9 per bowl, comes with miso soup and an egg. The pork is stir fried with what I think are garlic sprouts.
The dish actually kind of reminds me a little of hui guo rou - especially because the meat is boiled a little before it's stir-fried. There might be a connection, since this blog post says the dish was invented by a Chinese restaurant in Japan:
In any event, the bowl was delicious - hope some of you can try it out!
