Perth - Its Sundays Everyday!!

Almost every Saturday, I will go to either of these two places for breakfast/lunch or if you want a fancier name, brunch. They only open for breakfast and lunch, not for dinner so I can only go there on a saturday since i have to work!

Sundays Everyday is located in the suburb (south of the river) and nestled among all the shophouses in Myaree. The exterior does not stand out at all so most people who have not heard of this place will simply walk past the shop without giving it a second look.

Sundays Everyday has a few tables outside where people can dine alfresco style. There is plenty of free parking (suburban dining rocks) available. The restaurant is simple and small. It is owned by a japanese who is very friendly.
The restaurant is more like a lunchbar. It is very informal and there are many different types of ricebowls (don) (teriyaki fish, teriyaki beef, katsudon, curry don, teriyaki chicken, karaage...and more) pre-packed for take-away purchases. Don't let the word 'pre-packed' turn you off because the food here is all freshly made and the turn-over rate is very veryyy high. If you are dining in, your order will be freshly made and it comes in larger serving as well.

Let's go on to the food.......

Karaage Chicken Don, $8.90 - japanese fried chicken served on top of rice, topped with teriyaki sauce.
I have never tasted any karaage (in singapore or perth) better than this. The marinate is just nice, and their batter makes the chicken so crispy on the outside while retaining all the juices inside.
This huge bowl of karaage don is not for the faint-hearted. It is for VERY big eaters, a couple usually share a bowl. As you can see from the picture below, there is a lot of chicken. The bowl is almost filled to the brim with rice and I dont think any normal person can finish everything.
The chicken pieces are very big with its crispy golden skin still intact. The karaage chicken is quite lean which is different from the other 'fatty' ones that you usually eat elsewhere. If you don't feel like eating rice, you can order the karaage udon instead, which is just as good,

Rating: 4 / 5

Teriyaki Chicken Udon, $9.20.
I think i have ordered this dish 20 times straight in a row instead of ordering other dishes from their menu.

The udon is chewy, cooked to the right texture and the dashi stock is very tasty.

The star of this dish is not the udon, but the teriyaki chicken whichis deep fried before being coated with thick teriyaki sauce. Up till this day, I have yet to find another teriyaki sauce that is similar to this. It is not too sweet and it is very thick, coating the tender chicken with its crispy skin. Again, I have yet to taste a teriyaki chicken better than this. I have tried teriyaki chicken in all sorts of restaurants from average eateries to fancy-cook-in-front-of-your face $$$ restaurants but this still tastes the best to me.

If you want your chicken to be crispy, please ask them to separate the chicken from the udon (which I did).
