Don Tojo

Location: Cardigan Street, Carlton
Cuisine: Japanese
Company: Terry

Lowei suggested this place when Terry and I were looking for a quick bite before our negotiations competition. Turns out I'll have to trust Lowei's judgment of food from now on!

The menu was small and totaled about 10 choices, ranging from don (rice) to udon (noodle soups). My sukiyaki (beef) udon soup came loaded with beef, bamboo shoots and udon noodles. Although a little on the dry side (it could have had more soup), it was full of flavour and almost reminded me of the beef I had at Yoshinoya in Hong Kong. Terry's sukiyaki don came also heaped with lots and lots of beef and vegies.

~Atmosphere and Service~
The place was rather small, and very casual. It appeared like a place for people after a quick but filling meal, and the service was quite fast - quite possibly due to the limited menu.

Very cheap. All dishes were under $10.

~Overall Impression: 8.5/10~Adding this place to my list of quick and cheap eateries!

I would rate the food well above anything I have ever had at Yoshinoya in HK or Japan. Much warmer service too!

We liked the fact that it was licensed, was great to enjoy cold asahi's with our teriyaki. Vry friendly bar staff too :)

actually, i was trying to find out the meaning of the name don tojo (i thought tojo might be spanish for bar/drinking place or something) because the bar is covered with south american paraphernalia and the barkeep is chilean/australian.

it was like a combo of my two favourite places in the CBD: DonDon's meets Ruebebelons!
