PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

This cute little restaurant derives its equally cute name from the abbreviated Japanese word donburi, referring to a dish served over rice in an oversized bowl. Clearly these dishes are a specialty at Don Don, but so are noodle and sushi dishes, each clearly signalled on the menu by the suffix of –don for rice or –udon for noodles. (If you want to take it even further there are -sushi-don dishes, but let's not get overexcited). If linguistics is not your strong point, there is also a photo of each dish with a short explanation of what's in it. The price is something no-one gets confused about, with most dishes sitting under the $10 mark but filling enough for two.

There are no entrees and mains at Don Don, just large bowls filled with whatever you choose. Most dishes come in both –don and –udon variations so choose your main ingredient and cooking style such as teriyaki, tempura, katsu or sukiyaki. Impress your dining companions by ordering grilled eel and seaweed salad instead of the more standard chicken or beef teriyaki. With such great value and BYO, this tiny restaurant usually has a queue around mealtimes so be prepared to take-away or wait your turn.

Very nice food, and quick service. Unfortunately they don't stock everything that is on their menu - the Eel with egg used to be fantastic, but they won't sell it any longer. The meals are huge!
