Sukiya Yakitori Don (Grilled Chicken Bowl)


Like Yoshinoya, Sukiya also has a lot of branches in Japan. From the major cities to the provinces, these restaurants are very easy to locate and spot. Sukiya restaurant signage are commonly written in Japanese as すき家 but the color of the logo makes it very easy to identify and remember.

This is the 2nd restaurant that I will feature that is famous in Japan when it comes to Gyudon and Curry. Previously, I posted about Yoshinoya's Gyudon (Beef Bowl). Instead of Beef bowl or Curry, I decided to go for Yakitoridon (焼き鳥) or Grilled Chicken Rice Bowl.

In Sukiya, you can also order food in different servings: namely,  standard-serving (nami, or namimori, 並盛), large-serving (oomori, 大盛), or extra-large-serving (tokumori, 特盛). Usually, tokumori has the same amount of rice as with ooori but it has 2-times as much meat. In Sukiya, unlike Yoshinoya, an even bigger serving can be ordered if you really feel like extra hungry: this is the Mega serving (メーガ) [still pronounced as Mega in Japanese] that has 3-times the meat of oomori. ^_^

Yakitori, famous as a food paired with beer and other alcoholic beverages, is commonly used for barbecue chicken meat, skin, or liver, Sukiya's Yakitoridon is purely made-up of chicken meat (mostly thigh part).

Sukiya's Yakitoridon is served with rice with nori bits (Seaweed), spring onions and sesame seeds on top. I may not even add anything on top of it to make it even greater. It is also served with cold brown tea that you can refill anytime in the shop.
