Translated from Japanese:

I ordered seafood rice noodles for lunch at Kenmin Dining, which is famous for its rice noodles.First, I had a plate of assorted appetizers and soup, then seafood rice noodles, xiaolongbao, and plenty of plump shrimp at a reasonable price...


Translated from Japanese:

Since it opened at the Kenmin headquarters, I always had to wait in line to get there, but I wanted to go for lunch because the lunch set was a good deal, but it was the first weekend after the New Year, and there weren't many people in Kobe, so it was empty too. I had an unexpected evening...


Translated from Japanese:

Go to Kenmin Dining on the 1st floor of the Kenmin Foods building, which is famous for its rice noodles! Ordered xiao long bao, pot fried rice noodles, shrimp ball fried rice, and sesame dumplings. It was very delicious, but I forgot to take a photo, so you can only see the outside. I want to go again!
