sutadon outside
You've tried the famous beef bowl from Yoshihonya, Sukiya, or Matsuya already and want to try something different, but still cheap and delicious. Try SUTADON (Stamina Pork Bowl) then from DENSETSU NO SUTADONYA. Densetsu no sutadonya means "Legendary Stamina Bowl Resto" and Stadon was invented by a small local Chinese restaurant in Kunitachi, a suburb of Tokyo. When the owner closed his small shop, he passed the recipe to one of his customers. This customer started his own shop in Kunitachi 15 yrs ago and now owns over 33 shops in Tokyo and 17 outside of Tokyo. It was only famous to people who lived around Kunitachi, but after a high school baseball phenom told the media that it was his favorite food a couple of year ago, business took off. Now its probably one of the fastest growing food chains in Tokyo.

The main item is SUTADON (short for stamina bowl), which is a slices of pork belly cooked in a soy sauce based garlic sauce. It is first boiled in hot water and then stir fried with this garlic sauce.

The portions are huge, comes with raw egg and miso soup for just 600 yen. Just mix the egg and pour it over the pork. If you want, you can add extra pork for 120 yen or even extra rice for 80 yen, but the regular size Sutadon should be enough for most people.

If you want to eat pork and rice separately, there is STAMINA RICE for 600 yen.

suta curry
Or you can have it with curry rice as well called STAMINA CURRY for 650 yen.

sutadon チャーハン
If you are with someone who doesn't like garlic there are regular dishes like CHAHAN (Fried Rice) for 600 yen as well.

sutadon gyoza
They also have side dishes like GYOZA for 200 yen.

sutadon inside
They have many other items, but almost 95% of the customers order Sutadon and I would recommend to do so if its your first time here. Its like a ramen shop, just eat and leave as soon as you are finished, but even my wife craves for it at least once a month. Besides this shop in Shibuya, there are shops in Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, Okachimachi, Kichijoji, Shimokitazawa, Shinagawa, and many other locations in Tokyo. Also, you can take out all dishes as well.
