V was the one who stumbled upon this new Japanese cafe and raved to me how good it was. She reckon that it is much better than Don Don! I decided to give it a try during our lunch break. Matsuki has a simple layout with limited seats within the cafe, however, they added some tables along the walkway outside. At the counter, we were shown pictures of the various items available and their price. This was definitely clearer and more attractive than DD’s.As usual, I ordered my favourite Sukiyaki don. There were two options, $6.10 for regular and $8.10 for large. I opted for the regular which was swiftly brought to our table piping hot and fresh! The smell was fragrant and meat thinly sliced. NOM! The sauce was the right sweetness, not overdone. The rice was sticky and fluff. It was definitely a winner for me among all the Sukiyaki dons that I have tried in Melbourne so far! And at $6 a bowl, it was a bargain for such delicious ‘delicacy’! (Sadly, DD’s seemed to have a drop in their standard over time.)

V went for Teriyaki Chicken don which she had nothing but praises for. The chicken was soft and succulent; flavoursome sauce had her finish it in no time.

M had Katsu Don which was rather large in portion. The skin was crispy and the meat soft and moist. πŸ˜€

Kudos to V for the great find and recommendation! Finally, a place that sells my Sukiyaki don exactly the way I like it and just $6 I am able to eat till myΒ heart content! πŸ™‚ Oh, remember to get the loyalty card from them, after 7 bowls you would get one for FREE!!! Sure, another superb reason for you to go back for more…
