Gyu Don at Heno Heno

Everytime I shop at Oriental Supermarket, I pass through this cute japanese restaurant and I'm intrigued by its cute wooden japanese billboard.

So I went in and found out that they have one of the simplest menu I've ever seen. They only serve gyu-don aka beef over rice, some udon and curry rice/udon, miso soup and onigiri.

I must say the gyu don is terrific & authentic, fine beef stripes salty from shoju and sweet from mirin. Underneath all those beef stripes and onion lay succulent rice absorbs all the goodness from the beef's sauce.

Because I "only" ordered a small gyu don (€3,80) I wanted something more and I also ordered Onigiri with salmon flakes (€1,20). It's exactly how an onigiri should be; rice with seaweed and in the center of those rice lump, flakes of salty salmon. What I also want to try next time is their Onigiri with Umeboshi (japanese salted plum).
