Donburi Station


“I am constantly on the lookout for places where I can get excellent raw fish without feeling like I threw my wallet into Lake Washington. The newest spot in town where I can achieve this joyous feeling is at Donburi Station in Georgetown. If you also love to feel this way and have $15.50 to part with, their chirashi is filled with so much fish including tuna, chopped toro, eel, albacore, shrimp, salmon, yellowtail, and masago all over rice. This bowl makes me want to hug every single fisherman and tell them thank you, I appreciate you, and I love you.”
