If you like spicy Chinese, this place definitely the place you should go. Their sweet and sour pork is the best. I highly recommend this place:)


The food was excellent, however you do need to come early (around 11am) to have lunch as the number of meals served there is limited (only 40~45 portions!). For the evening, I would recommend to book a table in advance to have a seat.


It's a Chinese restaurant that appeared on Kodoku no Gourmet. It seemed like it was easier to get reservations than before, so I went there.
It says that they serve Sichuan cuisine and Shanghai cuisine, but I'm not sure which one, but the famous drool chicken and steamed golden sea bream were delicious. The black vinegar sweet and sour pork had the sour taste of vinegar. The mapo tofu has a numbing effect rather than a spiciness, and I guess this is the specialty of this restaurant.

There is only one chef in the kitchen, so I was thinking that it would be difficult if more customers ordered a la carte in addition to the course menu. Even though there was a slight difference in the start times, the course customers were able to stay on track at one plate or another. Seems to be adjusting well.

I had crab balls, pork and vermicelli stew, and soupless dandan noodles. Crab balls and oyster sauce are delicious! I was surprised by the stewed, flat and chewy vermicelli! You will be surprised by the taste, which you cannot imagine from its appearance! Is it Hua Jiang? Slightly effective...


Translated from Japanese:

The taste, quantity of items, timing of serving, attention to detail, everything is perfect. Drooling chicken is too spicy lol, but it's delicious. Exquisitely seasoned grilled pork with juicy meat, delicious. As recommended, shrimp marinated in Shaoxing wine with rich miso and delicious...
