There is a section of Japan Local Donburi Championship 全国ご当地どんぶり選手権.
Donburi : Some food is topped on rice in a bowl such as beef bowl, seafood bowl and so on.
This is a ticket counter. If you want to eat their donburi in this section, you should buy the ticket because they don’t accept by cash.
500 yen for one food
Only 4 slices of fish on the rice
Taste was good though.
A little bit beef and too much egg yolk and grated yam on the rice
The meals of Japan Local Donburi Championship don’t look like their picture menu except a few honest shops. You should look over the real quality of the food before buying.
