Crown the cover version

In 1997, Japanese renowned beef-bowl chain Yoshinoya cast her debut in Bangkok. After struggled from doing business in the "tomyumgoong financial crisis" climate and in miscalculation of the Thais consuming and eating habits, two short years later in 1999, the mission failed.

Happy that ten years later, the empire strikes back! But not by Yoshinoya herself, instead it is her cover version, Gyunoya. Ramentei, an AOI restaurant, ex-consultant brought Gyunoya to life, serving Japanese style rice beef-bowl in Bangkok's C.B.D. Except the shop interior, everything in Gyunoya is very "Yoshinoya" - the rice, the beef, the sauce and even the bowl!

Beef bowl is our favorite fast food in LA.
The beef is so tender and the price is so cheap.

I have actually tried this place after wandering and looking around for a place to eat in the area.

Just recognized it from your photos!

Thank you TC.
Good to hear the Fish Burger is not limited to fish. Almost thought he is a cat. :)
