In Japanese, donburi means deep bowl. Donburi are large enough to serve a meal for one. The first half of the word (don) is used as a suffix in the names of the various servings enjoyed from these bowls. Examples include katsudon, oyakodon and ikuradon. Pteranodon, while not a modern Japanese delicacy, is a favorite dinosaur of many.
