When I walked into Donburi, I had no idea what I was in store for. It’s a tiny little place in a great trendy area. When you walk in you are instructed to order at the register in the front and only after that take a seat at the bar (which is the only seating). Luckily when we went it was not crowded and getting a seat was not an issue, though I imagine at busy times that would be a problem. The chef that was cooking was so much fun and really made our experience. Once he found out we were foodies he started giving us samples of everything on the menu and giving us his sauce recipes. This is a great place to go for lunch in DC. On our DC trip, though this was not the fanciest meal we had, it was my favorite of all the places we went purely for the whole experience. It’s a great place and absolutely worth a visit. I had the Sakedon and my meat eating fiance had something similar, but meat friendly. We were both very sad that the Uni-Sakedon was out and we couldn’t try that one. Be sure to stop in to the place if you find yourself in DC and don’t be shy to strike up a convo with the chef; we are certainly glad we did.
