13th April 2019 – (Hong Kong) If there is one casual Japanese restaurant that you should try in Hong Kong, we would strongly recommend Don Don Tei in Causeway Bay. Don Don Tei is a specialty restaurant that serves amazingly fresh and delicious ten don (tempura donburi, or tempura laid over a bowl of rice) and donburi (rice served with sashimi and chicken) at reasonable prices! You can always find seats in the restaurant even during peak hours as it has plenty of tables.
The Osaka-based Don Don Tei chain has 14 branches in Japan and 2 branches in the US and Malaysia.
As a restaurant specialising in ten don, Don Don Tei offers signature dishes that include Deluxe Tempura Rice Bowl, Assorted Tempura with Egg Sauce Rice Bowl, Deluxe Sea Prawn Tempura Rice Bowl and Deep-fried Pork Cutlet with Egg Sauce Rice Bowl. The ingredients are freshly imported from Japan.
Our favourite dishes are the Soy sauce sashimi donburi (HK$138 – Lunch set price) served with freshly chopped wasabi root. This is probably the only Japanese restaurant in town that serves sashimi with freshly chopped wasabi root. If you love chicken, you must try their grilled chicken cutlet set served with cold udon & rice (HK$98 – Lunch set price) and scrambled egg with chicken donburi (HK$73).
The establishment offers sushi set during tea time for only HK$88.
