Yoshinoya Gyudon Eating Contest on It’s 4th Year

9:40:00 AM

This is actually my second year to cover the Yoshinoya Gyudon Eating Contest. Last year was my first which I was able to witness the winner Douglas James Candano, not actually just eat but gobbled up more than 6 bowls of gyudon. Also one of the bloggers, Florencio Jusay, Jr. won in the media category. It was indeed a day of gyudon. Imagine the look of these contestants eyeing to finish more bowls of gyudon than the other and also imagine the number of gyudon that Yoshinoya have to prepare. Well, it’s more than imagine but it happened last year.
So this year, for the last several weeks of getting qualifiers from different branches of Yoshinoya, they finally completed the list of individuals eager and hungry to take on the challenge and finish a number of gyudon. As Yoshinoya’s Gyudon Eating Contest marks its 4th year, many hungry Filipinos are in to test their mettle to gastronomic challenges. If Coney Island in New York, USA has the world-famous Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, then the Philippines definitely has Yoshinoya. And just like in the previous editions, the Yoshinoya Gyudon Eating Contest promises to be nothing short of excitement.
