Yoshinoya Restaurant’s Beef Gyudon Eating Challenge
Yoshinoya is running a Beef Gyudon Eating Challenge for its customers
When in Manila, it is no surprise to see many people chowing down on great food because we do have a lot of great restaurants all over the metro. Even the ground floors of many office buildings of business districts have been converted into spaces for restaurants or convenience stores. It seems food is really the most in-demand necessity that would forever be the number one choice for entrepreneurs going into business.
The Yoshinoya Gyudon Eating Contest poster
One of the most popular Japanese fast-food restaurant that I just had the opportunity to try a few days ago was Yoshinoya. We had a few take-outs of mixed maki from their SM Megamall branch and that is where I learned about their eating contest for their customers where anybody can take the challenge of chowing down on several bowls of their Beef Gyudon. The winner will be the one who can eat the most Beef Gyudon in a span of five minutes. A weighing scale will measure the weight of left-overs to determine the winner.
Beef bowls are one of the most popular dish at Yoshinoya
Gyudon is a popular Japanese dish where “gyu” means beef and “don” means rice bowl – obviously with something on top. It is one of the bestsellers at Yoshinoya so its actually a treat to compete in their contest which is already on its 4th year. It is expected that many beef gyudon lovers will flock to Yoshinoya stores to join in this exciting gastronomic challenge.
I still can’t manage to learn how to use chop sticks to eat any dish especially the Beef Gyudon with rice
Yoshinoya is a popular fast-food chain that specializes in all-time favorite Japanese culinary fare. It first held its beef eating contest last 2008 at its SM Megamall branch, then at the SM Mall of Asia Activity Center the following year. This year, the challenge will still be nothing short of exciting, with more participants expected to sign up for the contest. Composed of two challenges, the contest is open to all male and female participants 18 years old and above. Qualifying Rounds will be held Monday through Friday at all Yoshinoya stores at 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., and then at 6 pm and 7 pm from January 21 up to February 15, 2013.
For added taste, your order comes with these for every serving of Yoshinoya’s Beef Gyudon
To join, simply pay P199 at the counter, fill out the registration form and sign a health and release waiver. Customer must also present a valid ID (School ID, Company ID, Driver’s License, SSS ID, GSIS ID, NBI Clearance, Postal ID, Voters ID, or Passport) to the store manager. For the qualifying round the beef bowls should be consumed in the store. The customer who finishes the most number of bowls or who has the least amount of leftover food in 5 minutes wins the challenge of the day. The names of the four (4) fastest challengers will be on display at each store’s Leader Board and will be updated every time a new record is set.

After the weekly qualifying rounds, all qualified participants will be notified via phone call or email and are automatically entered in the grand finals, which will be held on February 23, 2013, 1 pm, at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City. During the final match, all finalists will compete by eating the most number of bowls in 15 minutes. The top three (3) finalists with the most number of bowls consumed and the least weight left after 15 minutes will be declared winners of the Yoshinoya Beef Gyudon eating challenge.
