Hello everyone!

This is Toshi.

Today I introduce Japanese fast food.


-What's fast food?-

Fast food definition is a type of  mass-produced food that is prepared and served very quickly.

I think of course you already know it.

When you hear fast food what foods do you image?

Hamburgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, sandwiches, pizza...

Those foods are western style right?

Next let me introduce Japanese fast food.







Since Edo era(1603~1868)Japanese people eat such these foods as a fast food.


-Beef bowl Gyu-don-

Gyūdon (牛丼), literally beef bowl, is a Japanese dish consisting of a bowl of ricetopped
with beef and onion simmered in a mildly sweet sauce flavored with dashi (fishand seaweed stock),
soy sauce and mirin (sweet rice wine).

Due to the Movement Towards Westernization (文明開化 - Meiji Restoration in Japan) that Japan experienced in the Meiji Era,
western customs like eating beef were adopted and spread throughout Japan.

In 1899 Eikichi Matsuda opened the first Beef bowl (Gyu-don)restaurant.

So compare with Gyūdon (牛丼) and  Soba, tempura, sushi, Oden, eel, skewers,

Gyūdon history is newer than others.


-Gyu-don (Beef bowl)restaurants-

There are 3 popular  Gyu-don restaurants in Japan.


Yoshinoya is Long-established store. First Gyu-don restaurants in Japan.



Compare with other restaurants ,Matsuya has many set-menu.
