Popular counter Chinese food in Nagoya
Although it is Sichuan-based, it is not too spicy and easy to eat.
Not only the food, but also the dessert, almond tofu, was delicious.

January 2024
I got a vacancy notice on Omakase and just had time, so I decided to visit again.
This time, many of the dishes were fragrant and delicious.
Personally, I think it could be a little more spicy.
I hear that the price will go up from June, but I think it's worth it.
Thank you for the meal.
