Looove their gyoza! but currently closed for lunch. So very sad to have found out after travelling over 30mins to get here. Make sure they're open before visiting!


A town Chinese restaurant located about 3 minutes walk from Meguro Station!

I visited on Saturday at 18:30, and there were already 4 groups of people waiting!
I made a reservation this time, so I went straight to the store!

There are only about 10 tables inside.
It's close to the neighbors, so if you don't like a lively atmosphere, please be careful!

Gyoza is the most recommended dish, and there are four types of gyoza on the recommended menu!

We use shrimp in all of our gyoza, so if you don't like shrimp, you can choose something other than gyoza as they are also delicious.

The overall volume is large, so if you go with a group of about 4 people, you'll be able to order a variety of menu items and enjoy it♪

This time, we will visit with two people, for your reference ↓
・Steamed gyoza
·Radish rice cake
・Sweet and sour pork with black vinegar
・Gomoku fried rice
・Beer x2

I was pretty full!

Payment is only in cash, so please be careful if you usually do not use cash.

Minus points...
・Credit cards cannot be used.
- Close distance to neighbors.
・There is no space to put your bag.


Town Chinese restaurant [Chinkairou] located about 2 minutes walk from Meguro Station
I really wanted to go to Chinese food in the city, which has been getting a lot of attention recently, so I visited there.

The store has a great atmosphere from its appearance.
This is a casual shop!

Although the store was crowded, we managed to find a seat at the right time!

◆Menu I ordered this time◆
·Mabo tofu
·Gomoku fried rice
·Radish rice cake
・Fried eggplant
・Gyoza with shrimp
・Boiled dumplings with shrimp
・Dumplings with shrimp
・Bottled beer

The recommendation here is definitely the shrimp dumplings!
Also, I was surprised at how big it looked and ate it!

The shrimp are plump and it's not meat, so it feels very light.
I got carried away and ordered other things as well.

Afterwards, the fried rice was so voluminous that I left with a full stomach.

By the time I got home, there were many people waiting outside, so I think it was a miracle that I was able to get in!
It might be recommended to go a little earlier!
