At Hana Don, diners are offered an opportunity to appreciate true, genuine Japanese donburi. More than just a “rice bowl,” donburi is everyone’s chance to enjoy Japanese cuisine distilled into its purest form — “sea in a bowl.”
WHAT IS DONBURI?
Donburi is the quintessential Japanese comfort meal. It consists of a rice bowl topped with ingredients ranging from raw fish, cooked meat, and vegetables. Donburi is always served in a large bowl, giving it its distinctive name.
Due to its reputation as a complete meal, donburi is commonly considered to be healthy. It is enjoyed by everyone in Japan from office workers to school children, making it a common household dish.
Donburi makes for a full, satisfactory meal — especially when it comes to seafood varieties. Complemented by individual sauces with comforting tastes, they are great culinary experiences.
