My wife's childhood favorite place. Don't expect something fancy, but it's affordable and simple.


I stopped by for lunch for the first time.
It is located on the street between the main street of Chinatown and the shopping district.

With 2 adults,
I ordered grilled chicken, grilled chicken ramen, sweet and sour pork, and fried rice.
There was also a lunch set, but I wanted to try a variety of things, so this time I chose the individual items.

The grilled chicken was more moist than I expected!
It seems to be something like an appetizer and not a hot dish. The soft and gentle taste made my chopsticks go well!

The grilled chicken ramen is also delicious!
The grilled chicken soaked in soup is also delicious!

This time I tried to order fried rice and ramen separately, but the staff...
He told me, ``If you order that, it would be a good deal to make it into a set like this.'' I appreciate your kindness.

There were some reviews about customer service, but I didn't care.
A friendly guy from Kansai! As someone who grew up in Osaka, it actually felt good lol.

Thank you for the meal. My husband also highly praised it.
This is a shop I would like to visit next time I come to Kobe.


Today I went to have lunch at "Ryujiazhuang" in Nankinmachi♪
It looks like there are counter seats on the first floor and table seats on the upper floor♪ I ordered the restaurant's famous grilled chicken set meal. It seems like you can choose from large, medium, or small rice, so I went for the large one without hesitation (_v_) grinning...♪
The rice and soup are served first! The soup ingredients are very simple with only beaten eggs and green onions (^○^) The taste is delicious with just the right amount of salt (_v_) grin...♪
The grilled chicken is quite filling \(^o^)/ I'm glad it comes with a salad (^∇^) The grilled chicken is lightly seasoned, but it's delicious ~ (_v_) grin...♪ It's a bit hard to eat because it has bones in it. I guess that's the problem (⌒-⌒; )
Still, it was a very satisfying lunch✌︎('ω'✌︎ )
