Mark Lim - Yoshinoya always brings back horrible memories for me. I was always a fat gluttonous pig, even in high school. One time after class, my friends Alex and Mike took me to eat at Yoshinoya.
After ordering we patiently waited for an eternity. We were salivating from the aroma of beef and sauce. When we finally got our food, Alex decided he needed to go to the bathroom.
My greedy fat ass could not resist reaching into his unguarded bowl and grabbing a handful of that soggy bacon-like meat and inhaling it. When he came back he was furious and confused. His lack of meat drove him into a rage. He blamed me for the atrocity but I was able to convince him that Mike did it and that I would never do something that terrible to someone.
For years he thought Mike had been the one who ruined his life that day until one time at a party I confessed that I stole his beef. I was forever known as The Beef Stealer. Alex even started using Beef Stealer as his screen name when we played video games with each other.

There's something unique about Yoshinoya. It has a very distinct smell. When you're around it there is no doubt you will recognize that signature stink.
The salty sweet juices are sopped up by the white rice so you get a flavorful burst in every bite. There are soft caramelized onions entwined in the meat threads that give it a varied texture.
