[A store that will definitely become more popular]

Tabelog 100 Famous Stores.
When asked about Chef Toshinori Nakamura's background, he says that he has worked at the Japanese restaurant "Higuchi", the Mandarin Hotel (which means "Cantonese cuisine Sense"), and the now-defunct high-class Chinese restaurant "Chuuka Takase", so I'm sure he looks delicious. let
And the fun part is that he has experience at Totsukasakiyoken Kamiya, a Kiyoken restaurant located on the roadside of Totsuka. yeah? Maybe I'm using words differently... He has a background that seems to include a wide range of cuisines.

First, let's start with "Shrimp Pickled in Shaoxing Wine"...Wow, it feels like the authentic Chinese food starts in the afternoon. Not only the shrimp itself, but also the miso on the head is delicious.

``Hamo and miso spring rolls''...To be more specific, it contains miso made with conger conger, Kujo green onions, yellow chives, and burdock. Miso has a sweet and rich taste. It's delicious, but I feel like the flavor is too strong.

``Stir-fried clams, surf clams, and yellow barley''...Only clams and surf clams are used for the soup stock, and the ingredients are new lotus root, white bitter gourd, and shishito. Homemade sakura shrimp sauce is served on the side, and the flavor is amazing when mixed together. It's delicious.

"Rock oysters, Hong Kong style salted lemon"
...Gently blanched rock oysters served with homemade Hong Kong-style lemon and green onions. The rock oyster itself has a rich flavor, but the lemon onions are effective. This is recommended.

``Steamed chicken (chanchere kai)''...This is a dish that the chef learned from his grandmother in Hong Kong. And there are dishes that have not been introduced to the world and can probably only be eaten at this restaurant. A cooking method in which chicken is submerged in thick potato chestnuts and then steamed. It is similar to low-temperature cooking and has the advantage of being slowly steamed.
The taste of green onion and ginger eaten with chicken is irresistible.

"Buddha Jumping"...Shark fin, Kinka ham, dried scallops, licorice, maca, pearl barley, watermelon, crow bone chicken, Kinugasa mushroom, Agaricus mushroom, moonbeauty flower,
dried dragon fruit flowers
...The soup has a very rich flavor, probably because it has been simmered for a long time. It feels like the soup is full of nutrients and the nutrients are absorbed into the body. The taste is so strong that it's too strong if you don't refresh your palate with water.

``Egg Ankake''...Okra and vegetables are at the bottom, and egg ankake is served with them. This is a dish with a gentle taste, and the intensity of the flavor contrasts with the soup.

``Shayaki''...The flavor is rich and delicious. It is a luxurious dish that is satisfying to eat.

There are two types of finishing dishes,
Choose from either ``Hong Kong home-style fried rice'' or ``chilled dan dan noodles.''
Even though I was told that, I still wanted to eat both, so I asked for a little bit of both.

``Shayaki''...The plump, rich and sweetly grilled meat is very juicy and soft. Delicious and filling.

First of all, "Fried rice the way Hong Kong people eat it at home"...This is char siu fried rice, fish sea bass, and olive sauce (olives and mustard greens pickled in salt and then steamed in oil). When you mix it up and eat it, it has a deep flavor and is really delicious.

“Soy milk dandan noodles”… Delicious cold soy milk dandan noodles with white sesame flavor. It also contains chili oil, which gives it a spicy yet gentle flavor that is delicious. An impressive item.

The dessert is ``black sesame shiratama dumplings in coconut milk''...not too sweet and delicious. A relaxing taste.

All dishes were very delicious. One thing I did notice was that many of the dishes had a relatively strong and strong seasoning. It's better to mix in some light-flavored dishes within the flow of food, so that we can have a little rest when we eat.

However, the atmosphere created by Chef Nakamura and the service lady, as well as their personalities, make the restaurant as a whole feel comfortable. Decided to visit again. I think it's a very good store.


It was a restaurant I had been interested in for a while, but I couldn't find the right time for lunch, but I was finally able to go there.

This is not authentic Chinese cuisine, but Chinese cuisine that incorporates elements of Japanese cuisine.

Overall, the seasoning is gentle and very delicious.
In particular, the shrimp pickled in Shaoxing wine was so sweet that even I, who don't like shrimp, enjoyed it😋

The host was very kind and attentive, and we had a great time.

Please come visit us for dinner next time.
