One memorable food I ate during the trip.. happens to be this one. As I was walkin around the mall... with my Mom, my Sis, and my Dad shopping... We found this establishment somewhere near the makeup alley.
So yeah. This Japanese establishment serves everything Japanese - except Sushis and scrumptious desserts. Just observe their name: Dondonya. Roughly translated into Bowl-bowl house (thanks Calv) But hey! Their food are superb! Like.. totally awesome~ So.. during the writing of this post I checked out their website and checked their webpage and I found lots of interesting facts about their establishment. First, they claimed that they only used premium Akita-komachi short grain rice. In which I believe.. that particular rice is a rice with excellent quality.
Ahem. As we entered the restaurant.. We were greeted nicely and was brought to the edge of the restaurant. The interior itself was nice. It was not too traditional but more casual-looking. As I came into ordering.. we were automatically given a bowl of egg.. and a serving of chili pepper.
We ordered quite a lot indeed. I myself... ordered their BBQ Beef Rice Bowl. Looks superb and tastes excellent. The cut was generous.. and the rice itself was full of fragrance and rich in terms of its taste.

Meanwhile.. my sis had the Garlic Pork with Egg Rice Bowl. The same.. The cut was right for me.. and the taste was nice as well. Wish there's a restaurant in Indo that could serve a bowl like this..

Last but not least.. my dad. He ordered the star dish here.. Judging by the fact that this particular menu was shown quite often at a large size in their menus.. as well has their promotion board up front by the entrance. Here goes.. the Deep Fried Pork with Egg Rice Bowl.

Yeah.. I gotta censor some of the pic. I believe you would not wanna see my Dad's fatty stomach. Haha.
Of course.. we ordered a sukiyaki as well for our lunch. Trust me. It was cold in HK at the time of visit and we needed something piping hot!
While it may look like an ordinary Sukiyaki while it was being cooked.. This one is Wagyu. What amuses me.. Is how they serve the raw beef on a plate. Sooo tantalizing.

And you know.. I don't think there's any restaurant in Indo that would cut a meat like this....
One thing to note.. the assistant manager was cooking for us at that time. She cooked everything so neatly. She boiled the meat one by one to not let it overcook.
And all the extra egg... she soft boiled em. perfecto~
Overall. The meal I had was very nice. I guess the price was worth it. Well.. My dad doesn't seem to mind at all paying HKD $1.379 for all of this. Excellent food. Excellent service. No communication issues as well.
