Wanted: Beef, Prawns, and a Ton of Rice

I’ve been feeling a little under the weather of late and, as such, have also been feeling rather gluttonous. (But, who am I kidding?! I’m always gluttonous – only, it’s not too obvious most of the time.)

Times like these call for some serious sustenance and I can find anything more serious than a Yoshinoya Jumbo Plate – specifically a large gyudon (beef bowl) with three crunchy tempura prawns. The mix of the savory meat, the sweetish onions, the crisp batter, and the savory sweetness of the prawns is a combination I consider incredibly comforting.

Alas, in the meantime, I have to finish drafting a communications plan. *deep sigh* But, there’s plenty of time for a Jumbo Plate after hours; so…

  1. Wow! I’m a big fan of Yoshinoya too! And it’s sort of comfort food for my wife. I noticed that you did not add those pink ginger pickles. Have you tried putting some? For the Japanese, it’s like bagoong on your kare-kare. 🙂
