Do you have a favorite beef bowl chain? Even if you go there because it's close to your house or company, there aren't many people who decide which restaurant they like the most compared to eating each company.
So, this time, the editorial department tried and compared the beef bowls of "Yoshinoya", "Matsuya", "Nakau", and "Sukiya"! As a result, there was a surprising difference in the seasoning and the volume of the meat ...
Eat and compare the "gyudon" of 4 companiesThis time, we will compare these 4 items, which are close in price. Both were purchased in Tokyo.
Yoshinoya "Gyudon" average 380 yen (tax included, same below)
Matsuya "Premium Beef Rice" Average 380 Yen Nakau "Japanese Style Beef Bowl" Average 380 Yen Sukiya "Gyudon" Average 350 Yen
Sukiya is a little cheaper.
Let's take a look at each taste.
・ Yoshinoya is a classic tasteThe Yoshinoya beef bowl is soft with Tron for both meat and onions, and has a sweet and sweet sauce. It goes well with plump and soft cooked rice.
The meat is a little small and cut into pieces, giving the impression that it has a little more fat and fat.
・ Matsuya is a delicate beef bowlNext is Matsuya's beef rice. The meat is big one by one! It is thinly sliced and has a soft and fluffy mouthfeel, but it also has a firm chewy texture.
The seasoning is light. It is tailored to bring out the umami of the meat itself and the sweetness of the fat.
In addition, Matsuya's beef rice comes with "black sesame roasted shichimi" that other companies do not have. This was spicy, fluffy and fragrant, pushing the deliciousness of the meat to a higher level.
・ Nakau is Edokko beef bowlNext, Nakau's beef bowl. The rice is moderately chewy, with meat, long onions instead of onions, and thread konjac.
The seasoning is strong, salty and strong! It tastes like Kanto-style sukiyaki. It's absolutely delicious with raw egg toppings.
The well-cooked meat is soft and crispy and easy to eat. In addition, with long onions and thread konjac, you can enjoy a multi-layered texture that is "crispy, plump" that other companies' beef bowls do not have.
・ Sukiya is a rugged beef bowlThe last is Sukiya's beef bowl. The meat and onions are large and thick, giving the impression that they have a firm texture. The meat is not too fat, and the sweet and spicy sauce is well squeezed.
Rice has a firmer core than other companies and is perfect for people who want a sense of volume. It feels like a straightforward and rugged beef bowl.
My favorite is ...Compared to eating, my personal favorite was Matsuya's beef rice. You can simply taste the deliciousness of the meat, and the balance with the sauce that complements it was also exquisite. I'm glad that each piece of meat is big and voluminous!
However, since it is an individual opinion, I wonder if the taste will differ depending on the person who eats and the timing. We hope that you will find your favorite beef bowl by referring to this article!
