Fancy Chinese food. Great course meal experience.


I bought all the things I was interested in at ``Shikatara Mukana'' and came here, which also required reservations. Currently, we are only open for course lunch, so we ordered tantan noodles and fried rice. The black vinegar sweet and sour pork is very satisfying with its soft texture and aromatic black vinegar! The light taste is the same as the tantan noodles and fried rice mentioned above, and I believe this is the reason for its popularity. Next time I will have the evening course...


Well, it was really delicious. They said it was delicious and delicious. The presentation was also elegant. The vessels were unified with the same tone. Is it the same author? I thought I wouldn't be full because the portions were so elegant, but I was so full that I couldn't even eat dessert anymore.
It's so delicious that I can't resist drinking Shaoxing wine. It also goes well with Japanese sake. absolute.
On the way home, I thought back on the conversation and realized that it was a luxurious gout menu. surely. Salmon roe, red bean liver, milt... come to think of it, there were no leafy dishes on the menu. Relatively everyone was of the kotter type.
I wonder if it has to do with the timing? No, is it okay to have something mushroom-based?
The staff's service was perfect, and I can only thank them for accepting my various requests. It was a shop that I would want to go to again!
