Yoshinoya Singapore's "Large" Beef Bowl
Can anyone tell the difference between these two bowls? Neither can I. Aside from a slightly wider rim on the left one, they pretty much look the same, right? Well, the one on the left is the "large" bowl (versus the regular bowl on the right), which was quite shocking when I first ordered it; at Yoshinoya in the US anyway, a large bowl gets you one of those big rectangular bowls rather than the smaller round one (is there a large option in Japan?). Seriously...is there really that much more food in the large bowl to justify the price difference?
To be fair, containers can be deceptive (witness those Hoegaarden glasses that look huge but only hold a single pint). So maybe there is more food, but I sure don't feel it. Next time, I'm ordering two regular bowls instead.
