Sukiya: Our Love of Gyudon

Hello everyone!

Today we’re sharing one of our favourite places with you. It’s not a fancy pants place like Saito. Actually, it’s pretty much on the opposite end of the spectrum. It’s super cheap and anyone can get into it. It’s called Sukiya, and it’s great comfort food. It’s our go-to place whenever we have jet lag, and if you’re coming to Japan, you should definitely give it a shot.

This is the part of the blog post where we talk a bit more about the food, but there isn’t really much to say. Rice. Beef and onions. That’s it. You can go for pork and onions instead if you’d like, but I never tried it. You can add other toppings as well. I got the three cheese and tabasco, but I’ve also seen kimchi. I’ve seen Mayo. Oh! There are also times we’ve gone when we didn’t get beef, but minced tuna and egg yolk, and that was totally great. Kind of like our breakfast bowls we make at home. Actually now that I think about it I realize there’s a lot more to say. There are tons of options on the menu. I just know what I like so I stick to it.

Otherwise I’m kinda a small bit upset after filming this video. This was the first video we shot in a while, and I didn’t really feel my full silly self. How do I know? Because when I first saw Sukiya, I told Martina that it’s actually abbreviated from its older name: Sukiya Balls. And they had a discount shop called Sukiya Off. It’s not that great of a joke when I write it out, now that I look it over. The verbal delivery is critical. Ah. I’ll make sure not to miss out on my lame jokes in the future.

But hey, it feels good making videos again! We’ve been out for a while doing boring stuff for January, and we’re still not done (tomorrow I’m trying to find out how to get my Polish Citizenship), but we’ve got more videos filmed and almost ready to publish. Woot! And though we kind of joked at this not being a fancy pants video, we’re filming another fancy pants video over the weekend. We’re filming with another Iron Chef! It’s gonna be great. Stay tuned :D

  1. Love Sukiya…There is one in Misawa close to the base…It was perfect for those “I do not want to cook” days

  3. omg Sukiya! I ate there pretty often when I was in Japan because it was so cheap for a student! I always got the three cheese one and oh man do I want some now even though back then I got bored to it since I ate it too often. haha Btw, Sukiya was the first place I ate kimchi! Also something that I miss from Sukiya/Japan is that you can choose the portion size. I don’t eat much so I really wish I could choose the size here too (somewhere else than McDonald’s etc you know). ;;

  5. What do you mean Noodle Ball is not sexy? Noodle Ball definitely stole the show. Oh Noodle Ball, you so amaaaazin’ unintendedly chewy. A real delight for sore eyes. :D

    ps, I vote to have Noodle Ball in every video. It might even be worth having it’s own segment.

  6. oooh, sukiya! We actually have it here in são paulo, I didn’t realize it was an actually Japanese chain. A bunch of their stores are located near club and bar filled areas, and let me tell you, it’s a great thing to eat at 3 a.m. after a night of drinking!

  7. You guys inspire me to keep moving and trying new things. Especially Martina because I have a lot of health issues and for a while I was just letting them kick my ass. I see Martina just keep going like a BOSS and it makes me want to try harder. Thanks for all the great videos and for introducing me to many new asian dishes that I never knew about.

  8. Glad you’re nearly done with the boring stuff. I was really missing you guys!
    Kept checking your youtube channel, because not all videos show up in my feed apparently. Was so happy to find there was a new one!
    I always really enjoy your food videos, fancy or plain. Can’t wait for the Iron Chef one!
