After a haircut and treatment on Elizabeth Street, we were “hunting” for a place to fill our rumbling tummies! Remembered that my colleagues at work told me that Don Don on Swanston Street has really cheap and delicious food. The outlook of the place is kinda “shabby” and simple, similar to those eateries that are hidden under a subway station in Japan. But the number of customers going in and out of the place is impressive! We were lucky that we managed to get a seat near the counter despite the weekend dinner crowd. However, when it came to ordering, we had to be really quick. Many of the patrons seemed to know what they want on the tip of their fingers.
I have been on a hunt for authentic Japanese Sukiyaki Don. When I saw it listed on the menu, I pointed at it and told the lady at the counter that I wanted that! Voila! Don Don delivered what I have been searching for @ just $6.80!
The sauce was sweet with the thin strips of beef! It ain’t like those disgustingly thick and salty ones cooked up by Koreans to make Melburnians think that they are actually enjoying “real” Japanese food! T_T
Friend ordered the Pork Teriyaki Don which was only $6.50! It was nice but Sukiyaki Don was the prevailing winner of the cheap eat night!
