DOMO RESTAURANT'S LAST SCHOOL CULTURAL FIELD TRIP FOR THE YEAR.
NOVEMBER 17th, 2016 

The last cultural fieldtrip at Domo for the year was held on November 17th, 2016. Since Domo’s opening in 1996, over 20,000 elementary, middle and high school students have come to Domo for this traditional Japanese cultural experience.
 
This two hour cultural fieldtrip program, performed in coordination with Nippon Kan  Culture Center which has been hosting these Japanese cultural tours for kids since it’s founding in 1978. (Domo Restaurant is part of the Nippon Kan Culture Center complex on Osage street).
 
The tour program includes hands-on origami and the Japanese game kendama, Aikido demonstration, folk art museum and garden tour and a bento box lunch at Domo. This November day was the first day of snow in Denver and all of the kids were excited to see the snow and explore the traditional Japanese culture at Domo Restaurant.

WE EAT MEAT
By Gaku Homma, Domo Owner & Head Chef

I have been practicing the Japanese Martial Art of Aikido for over 50 years and still teach Aikido in countries all over the world. 

People sometimes think that martial artists have a special diet, but interestingly, in every country I have visited, there are vastly different visions of what the best diet for Martial Artists should be! 

Here in the United States, the origin of the idea that martial artists have a special diet I think comes from the movies!

In the movies, the “hero” martial artists dress in white, meditate regularly on mountain tops and dine on magic concoctions given to them by wizards. The “bad guy” martial artist, of course dresses in a black uniform. At least in the old black and white movie era, the “bad guy” always wore black. Today in high-definition color, the “bad guy” martial artist can wear any number of exotic colors!. Still today however, they also eat meat and drink lots of beer!  Now these are of course movie stereotypes, but if I had to choose, I guess I would fall into the second category because I too eat meat!

Meat is a rarity or a delicacy in many countries I have visited, and sometimes while visiting a country for the first time, I have found that my hosts have been surprised to learn that I eat meat. I guess with global communications in today's world, hosts everywhere might have been watching the same martial art movies!

When I return to the Denver after a long trip abroad, I love to visit the City Grille for one of their famous hamburgers, Enzos Pizza or Pete’s Kitchen for gyros; all my favorite restaurants on Colfax downtown. If I want a steak, however, I stay at Domo!
Steak at a Japanese Restaurant? Of course! Japanese people do not eat only raw fish (sushi)! Beef is a delicacy in Japan, and I am not the only one who eats meat at Domo! Most of my students after a hard aikido practice are happiest to sit down to a big steak at Domo!

Domo has a very unique Japanese style menu for meat lovers- all with generous portions and a Japanese country style taste for you to enjoy. Domo’s steaks are all served with a variety of Domo’s famous country sidedishes which together make for a well-balanced and nutritious meal. I am now 66 years old and still have the energy to travel the world on many trips throughout the year. The energy for all of my travels I am sure comes from eating a balanced diet that includes a healthy portion of meat!

Domo still serves a wide variety of dishes that don’t include meat so there is plenty for all of our customers to enjoy. Seafood tonyu ramen is still a favorite for all! 
More meat specials info on the Domo website!

NEW MEAT LOVERS
SPECIAL MENU & HISTORY
Domo's Meat Lovers Menu includes dishes that have been popular in Japan for almost a century, and used to be popular in the USA before the Sushi Boom took hold. For example, Katsu don made its debut in Japan in 1921.

Each of these new dishes has a unique place in Japanese history, so you can enjoy learning a little history while reading about these new menu items.

All of these meat entree dishes were originally introduced to Japan from overseas cultures and were not native to the Japanese diet. To share in the origins of the history of these foods, Domo serves these special meat entrees on plates with knives, forks and spoons as they were originally introduced in Japan.

For Japanese however, bowls are much easier to eat from with chopsticks so later in history, some of these entrees began being served in bowls (donburi) to better accommodate the use of chopsticks!
 
In Japan it is customary to pick the bowls up to eat from with chopsticks. 
KATSU
Katsu  in Japanese means "to win".  However when relating to foods, Katsu is derived from the word "cutlet".

Pork or chicken cutlets are dusted with flour, dipped in egg, rolled in panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) and deep fried.  Choice of Pork or Chicken

In Japan, Katsu is eaten for good luck.Let's Eat! Good luck for tomorrow!

Ton is the word for pork in Japanese. In early Japanese history pork was mostly eaten only for medicinal reasons. Today, pork is twice as popular as beef in Japan! Enjoy Domo-style pan grilled and sautéed pork steak with teriyaki flavored sauce! $23.50
