The famous Gyudon chain in Japan, Sukiya, is opening its first-ever branch in the Philippines in mid-November at Glorietta 2 in Makati City. So, if you’re looking for delicious, hearty, and affordable Japanese rice bowls, you know where to go!
Sukiya started in 1982 in Yokohama, Japan, and has expanded to over 2,500 branches worldwide. It is known for its signature gyudon bowls, a Japanese staple consisting of soft and tender beef strips simmered in a savory and mildly sweet sauce on a bed of warm rice topped with raw or soft-poached eggs, onions, cheese, and kimchi!
The restaurant gave an exciting and appetizing sneak peek at the menu. Check them out! (Read: Fun fact: The halo-halo is originally Japanese!)
Melted Cheese Gyudon
Sukiya first introduced the Melted Cheese Gyudon that cheese lovers will surely love. Since cheese is the most popular topping in Japan, it perfectly complements gyudon. The Melted Cheese Gyudon is composed of mozzarella and cheddar cheese mixed with melted cheese sauce. It has a savory taste and oozing cheese that will keep you craving for more.
According to Sukiya, the Beef Yakiniku serves as the best match with its original kimchi, their longest-selling topping. It has thick slices of 100% US grilled beef that is grilled to perfection in Sukiya’s original yakiniku sauce. With its mouthwatering taste and juicy beef strips, this one might be among the must-try flavors! (Read: 8 Studio Ghibli Dishes You Can Recreate Right Now)
Described as “most beloved food by locals,” the Deluxe Curry will give you the experience of authentic Japanese curry in Sukiya’s original recipe! Instead of white rice, it comes with curry rice mixed with beef, cheese, and sausage. It is soaked in a creamy and savory sauce that will level up the usual taste of curry!
Sukiya is still finalizing the menu, let’s hope to enjoy its full menu just like in Japan branches to experience Japanese cuisine! For more information and updates, visit Sukiya Philippines Instagram and Facebook page.
