Gyudon (literally Beef Bowl), is a bowl of rice topped with tender beef and onions simmered in a tasty salty sweet sauce. It is commonly served with beni shōga (pickled ginger) and shichimi (ground chili pepper), and sometimes topped with a raw egg.
"Gyu" means beef and "Don" is short for "donburi(rice bowl)".
Gyudon can be found in many Japanese restaurants and some fast food chains specialize exclusively in the dish. Well known Gyudon chains in Japan are Yoshinoya (吉野家), Sukiya (すき家), and Matsuya (松屋).
At some restaurants, you can specify how you want your Gyudon served, like tsuyudaku (extra tsuyu broth)!
