Since my wife and I love Yoshinoya, especially their Beef Gyudon (my all-time favorite among diners, a delicious slices of premium USDA beef simmered with onions in a special sauce, loaded in a large serving of rice), I decided to join their Blogger’s challenge. And as expected, it’s loads of fun, and prizes (All bloggers received P500 worth of GCs, and shirt).
During the event, we sat on a table with drinks and Yoshinoya’s Beef Gyudon bowls. Condiments are allowed (chili pepper, red ginger, and kikkoman soy sauce). Five minutes later, FPJ (fellow blogger) emerged out of 12 lucky bloggers, who instantly finished 2 1/2 Yoshinoya’s Gyudon Beef bowls and took home PhP 2,500 Yoshinoya GC.
Here are some photos which was taken during the event…
Here are some tips if you want to join and win the Yoshinoya’s Beef Gyudon Eating Contest:
