Restaurants serving “gyudon” stewed-beef-on-rice dishes will run out of beef next month due to Japan’s ban on beef imports from the United States.

Nakau Co. will stop serving gyudon at its chain of about 280 restaurants Monday. The step has already taken effect at some 40 outlets in the Kanto region surrounding Tokyo. Zensho Co. will remove gyudon from its menu at all of its roughly 480 outlets Thursday.
