Sukiya was founded in 1982 in Yokohama, an iconic port city in Japan known for being the site where Japan opened to the Western world at the end of its feudal Edo Period. Sukiya's signature dish, Gyudon (also known as beef bowl) originates from a traditional dish called Gyunabe, a type of Japanese hotpot made with beef. Gyunabe was created when beef, a Western ingredient, was introduced into Japan and combined with traditional Japanese cooking methods and flavors to create a new and unique Japanese dish. Gyudon has gained widespread popularity and has become an everyday food.
