The Japan government raises sales tax from 5% to 8% since April 1st in 2014. I’d like to update Gyudon/Beef Bowl price list.

☆ Yoshinoya(吉野家)

Yoshinoya raises overall menu prices. According to a company spokesman, food quality is improved by seasoning with white wine as a subtle touch. I heard before « Red Wine with Meat, White with Fish ». Is it correct or not?

☆ Sukiya(すき家)

Before tax raise, we were startled to hear the news that Sukiya would mark down Gyudon. As it turned out, Sukiya marks down  only Mini and Medium Gyudon. 

Plus, what we are disappointed is most dish prices are not dividable by 10 yen. It’s a pain in the neck for not only customers but staffs, when it comes to payment. It takes time to count exact changes which make your wallet swollen. Everybody complains! Totally Stupid!

☆ Matsuya(松屋)

No strategic comment by the company. Just all dish prices go up.

☆ Nakau(なか卯)

Frankly to speak, I’m wondering whether Nakau should be on the list. Nakau quit serving Beef Bowl since February in 2014. Instead, Nakau starts to serve Sukiyaki Bowl. I’ve ever seen some customers naggingly questioned to staffs « Why do they quit? ». Poor thing! It’s not staffs’ fault.

☆ Tokyo Chikara Meshi(東京チカラめし)

Tokyo Chikara Meshi is my fave. Unfortunately, Tokyo Chikara Meshi marks up all dish prices most among these five restaurants. For instance, « Grilled Beef Set » was 490 yen before tax raise. Now, 550 yen, although a salad is added to every set as an appetizer. However, it’s still my fave, as long as we can have rice as much as we want. Plus, chairs are best. I can sleep well!!

☆ Price Comparison of Yoshinoya around the world

Here is a updated list sorted by low price of Regular Gyudon
No wonder Japan goes down to No.6. Thanks to money exchange rate, China goes up to No.2. Why is Gyudon price higher in the USA? We import beef from the USA. It’s usual to think Gyudon is cheaper in the USA than in Japan.
