a tale of 2 dons

Ebi don, with freshly fried prawns.

I thought I would pen a post on food, something that has crossed my mind for a long time. There is no lack of it over here on the sunny island; we are that fortunate. I take a fair bit of snaps of food, so much so that it is almost a ritual before every meal. The sheer variety you can get means that to truly stand out, you have to do a few things really really good. It’s not all about bombarding your customer with myriad of choices.; every good joint always has a killer dish customers return for.

The good thing is, it doesn’t have to be expensive. A little extra effort and presentation can go a long way for a $5.50 don, which is what this picture is all about. In all honesty I think this is fairly attainable, ie not out of this stratosphere; I am reiterating that it is a lack of effort for the most part.

Salient points: The portions are comparatively huge. You would pay more than double for this sort of serving at restaraunts. The ebi don I had came with freshly fried prawns. The katsu don had easily thrice as much chicken than similarly priced food fare. Both are very tasty and has some presentation to boot. Plus, the uncle smiles and is extremely polite. It’s the whole package.
