Donburi Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

Donburi was something I stumbled on when I was trying to find a middle point for me and a friend to meet up. It turned out to be a hidden gem with huge portions!

We decided to try the Takoyaki and I was glad it had the sauces and garnishes. It wasn’t bad but still not the best I’ve ever had. The dough was partially chewy and the octopus piece was a good size.

The Donburi Gyuu Don is one of their classics and comes in a fairly large bowl with a lot of meat! It’s flavoured nicely and isn’t bland so you’ll have no problem finishing it! The rice is also partially wet and sticky like it’s supposed to be.

The Chicken Oyako Don was what I chose because I love eggs with my rice :). The onions were even super sweet and grilled to a soft texture so I had no problem eating it. The rice to topping ratio is just right and I wouldn’t change it.

This place is a little hidden but worth a try if you’re in the area. Try to avoid dinner rushes though since it fills up fast! It’s family friendly so a lot of groups come in at the same time.

Prison Surprise

Standard

Ingredients:
*1 package on instant noodles/ramen (remove seasoning)
*Doritos
*canned mackerel or tuna
*hot sauce

Have you ever wondered what you could make with limited ingredients? It’s what prisoners have to do all the time and they can get quite creative. I wondered what one of their creations would taste like so I decided to test it out!

Strawberry Shortcake in a Jar

*1 pound of strawberries, washed, and sliced into bite size pieces
*1 Tbsp of sugar
*1 cup heavy whipping cream

My favourite cake of all time is strawberry shortcake and having it in a jar means I can portion it out and take it with me on the go! I cannot stress how good this cake is even though it’s probably the most hideous thing you’ve ever seen, lol. Give it a try and let me know!
