Don Japanese Kitchen operates out of a black, unmarked food truck in a former parking lot near UT. But if you’re worried about finding it without a sign, the ever-present line of people waiting to place an order should give you a clue. Don’t worry - it moves fast. This food truck is a favorite among students and whoever else lives in West Campus, mostly because of their namesake “Don” bowl - a generous portion of fried pork, chicken, or fish over rice for just $5 flat. No tax, tip, or hidden charges. They stay open until they sell out, which tends to happen around 4-5pm every day.
