Yoshinoya Jakarta

It's been more than 15 years ago when I had my first beef bowl at Yoshinoya restaurant. It was when my Japanese friend visited me and she really missed Japanese food. It's interesting how the Japanese are so much into their food even when they are traveling outside their country. They are always looking for their food.

Yoshinoya is the largest chain of beef bowl restaurant first opened in 1899 in Tokyo. It's claimed as the Japan's No. 1 Beef Bowl. Their first branch in Jakarta was opened in 1994 but it closed due to the economic crisis in Indonesia then they have opened it again since 2010. So far, there are already 8 branches around Jakarta.
