Beef and Rice and Everything Nice

Last night after rocking the gym with Zishan we both grabbed some quick dinner before splitting ways. I opted for a place I don't think I've ever been to before. It's called Sukiya, and it's a chain that primarily sells gyudon. Gyudon is really simple. It's just cooked beef and onions served over a bowl of rice. Wikipedia says the beef and onion mix is "simmered in a mildly sweet sauce flavored with soy sauce and mirin". Can't argue with that.

In Japanese restaurants it is really common to find a little button on the table. This serves to call someone to take your order. Its not such a bad idea really. This way I always get just the right amount of time to look over the menu. The food came laughably fast. A good portion of the menu involves meat on rice, so they probably have one cauldron of each ready at all times.

I went for the three cheese version, which probably isn't the way the emperor eats it, but it's pretty darn good.

I thought the little privacy curtains were funny.

This little gem is a clip from an 80's Wendy's training video that breaks down burgers with a funky beat. "Don't wait too long I emphasize, or the meat won't reach the proper size."
