Japanese food lovers will surely know Yoshinoya, the famous 200-year-old beef rice restaurant chain of the land of the rising sun. In 1899, the Matsuda family opened the first Yoshinoya store at the Nihonbashi fish market. Thanks to the delicious dishes, especially the stewed beef rice dish cooked according to its own recipe, Yoshinoya quickly became famous throughout Japan and spread to the world.
To date, Yoshinoya has 2000 stores worldwide and recently, Yoshinoya opened the first store in Vietnam in District 1, Saigon. For those who love Japanese food in general and love Yoshinoya’s beef rice, this is indeed good news.
The space of the restaurant is designed in an eye-catching open form, so it is very airy, creating a comfortable and close feeling for everyone. The staff is professional, friendly and very enthusiastic service. On the main page of the restaurant, it also received a rating of 4.8 stars or more from the taste, space to the service, all of which received a lot of satisfaction.
Right from the moment it appeared, foodies quickly checked in and reviewed Yoshinoya. Although Yoshinoya’s menu has enough pork rice, chicken rice, salmon rice or pork loin rice, the main dish and most versions are still beef rice – the dish that gives the restaurant chain its name.
Going to a restaurant with beef rice, of course you should try beef rice. Yoshinoya’s most basic beef rice dish is Yoshi beef rice. In addition, you can enjoy Yoshi’s egg beef rice to enjoy more fatty, flexible eggs. If you like modern cuisine, the restaurant also has beef and cheese rice. The common point of all these types of beef rice is the sweet, sticky rice grains, soft stewed beef, and Yoshinoya’s signature rich and aromatic sauce.
Particularly, the beef and cheese rice dish is stored in a stone bowl, so it retains the inherent heat as well as the inherent softness of the meat. The cheese in the rice is covered quite a bit and is heated continuously on the mini stove to make the rice and melted cheese blend together. The rice that is brought out has a delicious aroma, served with marinated beef with eye-catching colors.
Not only that, the restaurant also serves a full salmon rice combo from soup, salad to soft and chewy beef with strong eel rice. The eel is carefully prepared so there is no fishy smell, but the sweet taste of eel meat is spread in the mouth when enjoying. This is also one of the dishes that many people love and choose when coming to the restaurant.
A plus point of Yoshinoya is that although it is famous at the branch located in the city center, the price is quite affordable. Accordingly, a portion of rice here is mostly in the range of about 72,000 to less than 100,000, depending on the choice of side dishes. So if you want to enjoy Japanese cuisine, Yoshinoya is a very worthwhile place to visit. In addition to rice, this restaurant also has hot pot, many other side dishes, at a price suitable for Japanese rice.
