I always avoided it because it was crowded, but it was still delicious. I don't think it was on the menu, but I ordered fried chicken and gyoza, both of which were excellent. When you eat gyoza with Mr. Huang's special chili oil, the indescribable spiciness and oil mix with the soy sauce, making it delicious. The xiaolongbao is delicious, and there are film studios (Shochiku, Toei) nearby, so you can expect that the people who are going in and out of the back room are celebrities, so you can enjoy it from that aspect as well. It was hard to find the right time to order because it was so busy, but the prices weren't too expensive and I wanted to go again.

Hello ( ̄Д ̄)ノ
Shopping street where Daimajin is located (Daiei-dori shopping street)
Do you know there is one? ?
There was a shop in that shopping street that was the birthplace of eating chili oil! ?
It's near a certain Tame○teya, and when I passed by the store in front of it, there were customers lining up, so I looked into it...

When I asked my acquaintances about this shop, they seemed to agree.
fault! ? Yocchan's dad is also coming.
Well then, I'll come and visit you right away (=゚ω゚)ノ.
Arrived at the store at 13:00.
Park your bike next to the store
Check the store menu ( ᯣωᯣ )
Hmm, I guess it's a weekly service lunch! ?
Let's go inside!

There are 3 counter seats, 3 4-seater tables, and apparently there are seats in the back as well.
I sat down at an empty counter seat.
Right next door as per the reviews.
There is chili oil to eat.
Then, as expected, the weekly service lunch is 1,100 yen (side dish consists of fried chicken, stir-fried bean sprouts and pork, and spicy oil Lingjii. Rice soup or Taiwanese congee)
Choose from.
I ordered fried chicken and a large serving of rice for 100 yen.
After putting it in cold water and waiting for a while,...

⚫️Weekly special lunch (large serving of rice)
1200 yen

Here it is, fried chicken, a large bowl of rice, soup, zha cai, salad, oolong tea jelly, and after a while, the steamed meat buns also arrived.
Please immediately pour some chili oil on it to eat.
( ・(OO)・ )
The best way to describe it is that it's a spicy seasoning that has the flavor of garlic and the spiciness of chili peppers, giving it a slightly tangy and umami flavor! ?
It tastes good no matter what you put it on♡
Fried chicken is chewy
It's a rip-off over rice, and I wonder if raw eggs are also good here♡
After that, I continued eating by pouring lots of chili oil on it. As a long-can old man, I stood behind my back so that the staff couldn't see me, and took about a third of the chili oil that was in the bottle (´-ω-) Um.

Hmm, as expected, this is the birthplace of edible chili oil.
It was different from the chili oil eaten at ○○ restaurant.
I bought a bottle for 900 yen as a souvenir and took it home.
(´-ω-)゚
This time for a different dish,
I want you to play hard on it.
Thank you~ Thank you for the meal.

PS If allowed, order a large portion of rice!! (only)
All that's left is
Eating it with chili oil...
That's no good |ω・)

I ordered the lunch menu called Handmade Hong Kong Dim Sum Set.
The dim sum was delicious, but I don't think it was that memorable. The highlight here is the chili oil. It has a slight sweetness and is so delicious that just pouring it over rice makes it a meal.
I also bought chili oil as a souvenir.

It's been a long time since I've been here. I don't know how long they haven't been here, but when I arrived after 1:00 p.m., I was able to get in right away, but there were a lot of customers, so I'm glad I came alone. I ordered the usual fried soba set. Personally...

Translated from Japanese:

It was introduced on TV, so I made a reservation about a week in advance, and went to eat there for the first time on the way back from seeing the autumn leaves in Arashiyama. Xiao long bao with plenty of gravy! You can also order Peking duck from just one piece, so I ordered it for the number of people. Fluffy fried shrimp and red egg...

Translated from Japanese:

All seats are non-smoking, there is no parking lot, and there is a coin park in front of the store. Posted on 3.54 a.m. I was watching TV the other day and it was introduced as the birthplace of edible chili oil, and as a ramen fan like myself, I couldn't help but BM this store. On TV, Tandanmen...
