“Donburimono” means “bowl-foods”. We call often “Donmono” also.
This menu means a side dish on the rice.
This style has been since the Edo era over 200 years ago.
When Tokyo was called as Edo, it was considered bad manners to seasoned rice or eat rice and side dishes together, though. Nowadays, it is served in fast-food, restaurant, and hotels as well.
Today, I introduce 15kinds Donburimono recipes and kinds Japanese often eat!
- Oyakodon (親子丼)
- Katsudon (カツ丼)
- Gyudon (牛丼)
- Tekkadon (鉄火丼)
- Tendon (天丼)
- Unadon(鰻丼 / うな丼)
- Kani Tamadon(かに玉丼)
- Loco moco don(ロコモコ丼)
“Oyako” means parent and child. This bowl is Chicken and Egg rice bowl.
This has another sexy means a man makes love with mother and daughter. Well,… You seldom have such an opportunity, may be?😏Hahaha
“Katsu” is from “Cutlet” that a small piece of meat. But, Japanese cutlet is very difference from real this one. We call usually “Katsu” is deep-fried meats, vegetables, or fishes with bread crumbs. Katsudon is with beaten egg, some vegetables, and deep-fried pork cutlet on the rice.
“Katsu” is same rythms as “Win” in Japanese.So, when Japanese eats this menu, we wish win something!
katsu is one of an auspicious menu😋
Butadon recipe (豚丼)
“Tekka (鉄火)” means Dipping tuna into soy sauce. This Chinese letters consist of “iron” and “fire”. This means tuna flesh looks like a fired iron.
The white one on top of this is tororo (grated yam) .
When Japanese eat flesh fish, we eat with Wasabi. Because wasabi kills parasites. Our ancestors knew that.
So we can’t eat Sushi without Wasabi.
Yamakakedon recipe (山かけ丼)
There’ no specific fish to use for Kaisen-don. The seafood bowl at the Japanese fish market is stunned by its yummy.
Kind Kaisendon recipe
“Hotate” means scallop. This is an unusual recipe for pickled scallops into soy sauce. It looks delicious!
“Una” is short for eel. This is a glaze-grilled like Teriyaki, Japanese eel rice bowl.
As this bowl is expensive, we can eat it on a special day only. If you saw cheap Unadon, this must be made in China or Korea…(sorry them.)
The real Japanese eel is expensive, because this meat is thicker and richer than the other one.
Eel is poisonous in the blood and cannot be eaten unless it is cooked. In addition, it is very difficult for amateurs to cut it because it is slimy.
In Japan, the eel is sold in packs that are already grilled.
There are no recipes for cooking of raw eel, so I introduce the recipe for using already packaged.

“Soboro”means minced chicken flakes, scrambled eggs flavored with soy sauce, sweet sake, sugar and so on. This is also known as “Sanshokudon” , tricolor rice bowl.” Sanshoku” means 3 colors.
“Kani” means crab. “Tama” is short for “Tamago” as egg.
This consists on crab, pork or shrimp, chopped leeks, shiitake mushrooms, salt and pepper to the beaten egg, bake it.
Then putting it on rice, and dressed with a thick starchy sauce.

The word “Bakudan” means “Bom”. The reason why it is called “Bakudan”? Because, this recipe is from Hiroshima…it’s joke.
