Melbourne, VIC 3000
I hadn't been to Don Dons since their move from their modest Swanston St store to their new dwelling just around the corner on Little Lonsdales. It has changed it's look drastically from what was once full of Japanese flavour to a modern stream line canteen feel.
They have increased the number of seats available looking very clean and simple. Though I do miss the old shabby wooden benches that just seems to give it an extra boost of authenticity.
Some things that haven't changed is their highly affordable menu (consisting of 11 dishes) and efficient production line allowing to churn our your meal faster than you can pay for it.
I opted for takeaway in order to bring it Milo at his university. Curry chicken don ($6.90) was slightly saltier than last time but still amazing. They added more veggie into the mix and we really like how they place the rice on one side and majority of the sauce on the other which allows you to mix it together yourself to your own preference.
Sukiyaki don ($6.30) never disappoints. Love how moist and thinly sliced the beef is and dish is full of flavour.
This place is still my favourite for a tasty cheap quick eat that fills you up. The staff are very efficient and churns out consistent food every time.
