Sukiya vs Yoshinoya

Two beef bowls (gyudon) from two Japanese chains now available here in Malaysia.

Which one is your favourite?
Yoshinoya here adopts the style of a Sanuki udon joint, Hanamaru which it shares dining space with. Different from what one would experience if one enters a Yoshinoya in Japan but make sense here since Hanamaru is a subsidiary of Yoshinoya, after all. 
Sukiya here on the other hand, has pretty similar operation style as the one in the home country, Japan.

Thumbs up to their energetic, attentive staff at IOI Mall Putrajaya. 

I ate the gyudons during one weekend. Went to Yoshinoya on Saturday for lunch and had gyudon from Sukiya for dinner on Sunday.

I like them both, but I like Sukiya's better. 


Once upon a time, when the quality of the "old" Yoshinoya annoyed me (that was back in 2004 or 2005; I used to cook my own gyudon for my family as it is not hard to cook it at all.
