どんどん (Dondon in Shinjuku)



I've been here seven or eight times before. Not for the aburasoba, but for the sutameshi. Sutameshi is a pork bowl, and Dondon's pork bowls are available in West Shinjuku 24 hours a day. Fried pork, cheese, and a raw egg go on a giant bowl of rice. Green Tabasco sauce is a condiment that I can't get enough of, and it is sitting on the counter. All for about 700 yen. Solid grub.


Well, the other menu item had its chance. The aburasoba, soupless noodles heavy on the oil. A quirt of black vinegar and a squirt of spicy rayu. Mix mix mix.


It wasn't good. At all.


But seriously, than sutameshi is my go-to junk food in this part of town.
