Munakataya 宗像屋

Sashimi Donburi

Sashimi Donburi @ Munakataya

They only serve one thing here and then variations of it and that’s the sashimi donburi. It’s exceptionally good value for money and you can eat it three ways. Did I also mention that it’s totally Instagram worthy as well?

English instructions and menu are available. First you eat the sashimi mountain as a donburi bowl, then you make hand-rolls with the seaweed they provide and then at last, soup is poured to make an ochazuke (soup with rice) to finish everything off. This is the most basic option, and it was only $108HKD. How amazing is that?!?
