    You're missing a very key ingredient.. Always ask for a side of "Beef juice" its the juice the beef was cooked in. Pour that over the rice... Bomb.. of course the Soy, Pepper and Ginger.. Plus a fried egg on top..

    Jimmy you should do more cooking 🍳 vedios

  • xman777b

    You said you never see a black or a white person in Yoshinoya. It's because it has no flavor. Hey, I'm not even convinced you enjoyed it

  • jorgiebutt

    I LOVE Yoshinoya. Count Salvadoran people, too. GyuDon is awesome. The meat is stewed in a sukiyaki broth EDIT: I was saddened when the spicy chicken option was discontinued. The teriyaki sauce was actually spicy. It went through different t versions (cayenne pepper powder) and now it’s a habanero sauce. Not the same. I lived in the City of Industry in LA County, and we had a good number of strip clubs. After some boob gazing and touching things with my face, I’d go to Yoshinoya to get a large spicy teriyaki chicken bowl (the veggies used to have a glutenous coating) and then went to the Carl’s Jr drive-thru for a Famous Star. That was my self-care regiment.

  • NookieCrook

    Yo, legit food hack that will literally up your grade by 1 to 3 points: instead of using regular soy sauce, use Knorr - Liquid Seasoning Original and some hot chili peppers (chop, smash and mix in a small dish and pour over the beef). This also works pretty good with their teriyaki chicken, but this sweet/salty/spicy mix goes SUPER good with this dish in particular... and no I am not endorsed (but if Knorr is listening...). Just another AZN brother down with Yoshinoya since knee high. Thanks for the food insights and laughs!

    omg did, did he just put some soy sauce on it!? I'm japanese and that's so weird and it seems he will suffer from high blood pressure in the future. or yoshinoya in the u.s just sucks.

    Can't believe he added soy sauce. Never seen anyone added soy sauce on a beef bowl. In Japan, you have an option to add raw egg (cost extra more).

    I don't understand how you all can eat Yoshinoya. I haven't eaten it in the last 6-7years of so but all I remember is how fatty and chewy the meat is. Also what kind of reasoning is that? "Since I can't help all the homeless I won't help any"

    I feel like Yoshinoya is the Asian version of chipotle, everyone either really loves it, or really hates it

  • That Guy That Lives On 16th
    That Guy That Lives On 16th

    The part about Asians and Mexicans being the only people eating at Yoshinoya is 1000% on point. I can vouch as I am a Mexican myself; every time I go to SoCal & go to a Yoshinoya, bam, Asians & Hispanics.

  • Ivan BURNS

    I had Yoshinoya in Japan and it was amazing. Was dubious about it in the states, but this video has convinced me to try it. Ordering some for delivery right now!

  • J0kk3

    i dont like japanese yoshinoya, the chinese one is way better for some reason, cant compare the two

  • Stan L

    Growing up in SoCal, I loved Yoshinoya and used to asked my dad to take me all the time. He’d be pissed and never understand why I liked it more than made to order Chinese food. I have since lived in NorCal for the past 18 years and after watching your video realize how much I need it. Unfortunately, there’s only one location in the entire Bay Area. Imma hit it up tomorrow!

  • Kings

    add soy sauce...just get extra beef sauce. maybe you dont like the sweet sauce

  • N00BOOB

    Yoshiniya is GASSSS I don’t give a damn bruh I wish I lived in California JUST for this they don’t have it anywhere near me in AZ

  • DaKingOfGames

    Yoshinoya is a whole different beast in Asia. It's like fancy fast casual dining there. It's underwhelming in the US but you could say that with a bunch of other fast food places when you compare them to their overseas counterparts.

    Does the beef bowl have a Japanese name? Used to go to this place as a teen that would serve that with a soft boiled egg on top and 2 kikoman packets. Unlimited pickled ginger. That shit was divine. I gotta learn how to make it.

    • H G

      The Japanese name for this type of bowl is GYUDON... a ton of amazing recipes here on yt. It’s simple to make and amazing taste!

  • mindwreckRC

    Dude you can ask them to put some the beef juice they cook the meat in. You gotta get the beef juice!!

  • erly

    I love Yoshinoya. I had it on the plane back from Tokyo and I think about it at least once a day. Also, did you not get the egg sauce?? Aside from the ginger it's my favorite part.

    I highly recommend getting it in Japan. Gyudon here is much better. Many more varieties. For example, you can pay a little bit more and get better tasting beef.

    Yoshinoya is alright. Until you try the real deal in Japan. Then you dont go back to american Yoshinoya anymore.

    Sukiya > Yoshinoya

  • DZZZ

    You should do a cooking video for a beef bowl (gyudon). And you could make it even better with an onsen egg and green onions. Its pretty similar to the oyakodon but with beef instead.

  • myu8319

    What about Sukiya?
