Dongpo Pork Curry Don is a dish made by Ikumi Mito during the 43rd Annual Tōtsuki Autumn Election's Preliminary round. It also represented Ikumi's comeback since her first defeat.


Ikumi's latest donburi dish based after the famed Chinese delicacy of Hangzhou, China. While the pork belly which consists of lean and fatty meat is bouncy and juicy, the secret of the dish lies within Ikumi's self made tanjōyu oil in the rice to ensure the balance of taste between spiciness and sweet flavor within the donburi. This is also Ikumi's first non-A5 Meat dish. Ikumi has shown that she has learned to create a true donburi dish, making a dish that encourages the consumer to eat everything in it.

Real FactsEdit

  • Dongpo Pork (traditional Chinese: 東坡肉; simplified Chinese: 东坡肉; pinyin: dōngpōròu) is a Hangzhou dish which is made by pan-frying and then red cooking pork belly. The pork is cut thick, about 2 inches square, and should consist equally of fat and lean meat. The skin is left on. The mouthfeel is oily but not greasy and the dish is fragrant with wine. The dish is named after the famed Song Dynasty poet and gastronome Su Dongpo.[1]
  • Donburi (丼, literally "bowl", also frequently abbreviated as "don", less commonly spelled "domburi") is a Japanese "rice bowl dish" consisting of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients simmered together and served over rice. Donburi meals are served in oversized rice bowls also called donburi. Donburi are sometimes called sweetened or savory stews on rice.[2]
  • Curry (/ˈkʌri/, plural curries) is an umbrella term referring to a number of dishes originating in the cuisine of the Indian subcontinent. The common feature is the use of complex combinations of spices or herbs, usually including fresh or dried hot chillies. The use of the term is generally limited to dishes prepared in a sauce. Curry dishes prepared in the southern states of India may be spiced with leaves from the curry tree.[3]
