Food in Busan

In September 2015, I visited Busan and Seoul in South Korea on my own. Maybe it is because I was travelling solo, I tend to enjoy and paid more attention to the food I was having. If I were to travel with friends, I would have spend more time socialising and talking without paying so much attention to the food.

Fast food in Japan – Beef on Rice

Last December, I spent about 3 weeks in Japan. One of my favourite ‘fast food’ is Beef on rice or in Japanese it is 牛めし or 牛丼, depending on the fast food chains. I tried it in 3 different fast food chains: 1. Yoshinoya 吉野家 ¥380 牛丼

Yoshinoya Beef Rice

2. Matsuya 松屋 ¥290 牛めし

Sukiyaki Beef on Rice

3. Sukiyaすき家 ¥350 牛丼

Sukiyaki Beef on Rice ¥290

The price is based on the latest website menu (May 2015) for a medium sized bowl of Beef on Rice. I have tried the beef on rice from the three fast food chains. They are all as good as each other but only the one from Matsuya comes with a bowl of Miso soup. It may not be so-called ‘gourmet’ food, but it is value for money and very filling. Personally I prefer the one from Sukiya as it comes with the spring onion toppings. Customers however feel free to add the red-coloured pickled ginger toppings.
