What’s on Waimai is a monthly column where we single out delicious delivery food choices for your dining convenience.

This month we set our sights on another go-to waimai option: Sukiya. This Japanese-style fast food chain is spread across Guangzhou like white on rice and also serves up mouthwatering dishes for hungry Shenzhen patrons at a few locations. 

While we usually focus on one specific dish for our ‘What’s on Waimai’ column, this month we’re taking on the whole shop. Sukiya has two notable menu items we’re especially digging, donburi and okonomiyaki. Donburi is a glorious blend of flavorful meat and vegetables over a fluffy bed of rice. Prices range from RMB16-35 depending on the serving size. The eatery’s okonomiyaki is another classic Japanese dish, with various meats and vegetables combined to make an epic, savory pancake. Prices for this lunchtime slugger are a bit higher, ranging from RMB25-42.

Other waimai recommendations include their Japanese-style curry, miso soup, fried hash browns and, well let’s be honest, everything but the octopus balls. One thing to keep in mind: The sizes don’t vary much, so even if you’re starving beyond a doubt, aim for one of the smaller bowls to save some kuai.

Price: RMB25-35
Good for: a cheaper Japanese alternative to sushi
Search for: 食其家 (Shi Qi Jia)
