I came I Ate I Conquered Yoshinoya's Gyudon Eating Contest!

No doubt I do love Japanese food and Gyudon is one of them. Yoshinoya, where I consider to have the best Gyudon in the country, is having the GYUDON EATING CONTEST now on its fourth year. Indeed it is a challenge as the dish is very heavy even for a regular bowl. Now imagine yourself eating several bowls within the limited time of 5 minutes.

To get to know the feeling, we had a blogger's contest on who can eat the most bowl in 5 minutes. I had experienced this contest 2 years ago where I came only second with 3 and a half bowls. As you can see, the table is placed with gyudon bowls, condiments and a glass of water. The countdown begins ...3...2...1...

You can also be part of this contest which open to all, and the first step is to go to the nearest Yoshinoya outlet near you. Up to 100,000 pesos is up at steak for the winner! Isn't that sweet, eating and winning has never been this great!

Now back at the eating contest, I felt nervous when I was not the one who finished the first bowl, seconds passed and I made it  trough the first one. Then came the second, and there are 3 others also on the second bowl. And on the last minute, I shoved my way through I think can land me a place, hopefully. After the 5 minutes, the bowls are weighed for us who finished 2 bowls. And lo and behold, I finished 1st! Now I will be attending the grand finals in February to compete with the winners from the media. And I want you to be with me at the finals! Join the Yoshinoya Gyudon Eating Contest now! 

Yoshinoya’s Beef Gyudon Eating madness now on its 4th Year

Yoshinoya’s popular Beef Gyudon Eating Contest is now on its 4th year, and expect more and more beef gyudon lovers to flock to Yoshinoya stores to join in this exciting gastronomic challenge.

Yoshinoya, the country’s most popular fast-food chain that specializes in all-time favorite Japanese culinary fare, first held its beef eating contest last 2008 at its SM Megamall branch, then at the SM Mall of Asia Activity Center the following year.

This year, the challenge will still be nothing short of exciting, with more participants expected to sign up for the contest.

Composed of two challenges, the contest is open to all male and female participants 18 years old and above. Qualifying Rounds will be held Monday through Friday at all Yoshinoya stores at 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., and then at 6 pm and 7 pm from January 21 up to February 15, 2013.

To join, simply pay P199 at the counter, fill out the registration form and sign a health and release waiver. Customer must also present a valid ID (School ID, Company ID, Driver’s License, SSS ID, GSIS ID, NBI Clearance, Postal ID, Voters ID, or Passport) to the store manager.

For the qualifying round the beef bowls should be consumed in the store. The customer who finishes the most number of bowls or who has the least amount of leftover food in 5 minutes wins the challenge of the day.  The names of the four (4) fastest challengers will be on display at each store’s Leader Board and will be updated every time a new record is set.

After the weekly qualifying rounds, all qualified participants will be notified via phone call or email and are automatically entered in the grand finals, which will be held on February 23, 2013, 1 pm, at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City.

During the final match, all finalists will compete by eating the most number of bowls in 15 minutes. The top three (3) finalists with the most number of bowls consumed and the least weight left after 15 minutes will be declared winners of the Yoshinoya Beef Gyudon eating challenge.

First place winner will receive P100,000, second placer gets P50,000 while the  third placer takes home P25,000. Non-winners will each be given consolation prizes of P2,000 worth of Yoshinoya gift certificates.
