A Chinese restaurant located in Mototanaka, Kyoto City.

This was my first visit after being recommended by a foodie living in Kyoto.

The shop is located at the back of a narrow alley, and the interior has a cozy, casual interior with counter and table seating.

It's an a la carte style restaurant, so I asked for the staff's recommendations and some of their favorite items.


◆Assorted appetizers
◆Kadaif (kagomaki) shrimp, conger eel
◆Steamed milt and tofu
◆Yaki duck
◆Stir-fried scampi
◆Four types of bean sauce, mapo tofu, rice


◇Draft beer
◇Shaoxing wine on the rocks
◇Japanese pepper gin soda
◇Lemon chuhai

The quality of the appetizer platter is high.
All of them were delicious, but my favorite was the steamed chicken ♡

The kadaif dough is fluffy and delicious.

Grilled duck is glossy and beautiful.

Mapo tofu with four kinds of bean sauce is not spicy, but it has a good taste and goes well with white rice ♡

We ate and drank a lot and it cost just under 10,000 yen per person, so it's quite cost-effective.

If it was nearby, I could go every week.

I'm very satisfied.

Thank you, secretary ^ - ^

Thank you for the meal.


Reservations are required as there are limited seats. This was my first time visiting, but I had no doubts that it had the best potential. It's a hideaway and has a good atmosphere. The utensils are also stylish. The shark fin is this size and the price is reasonable. The pork trotters are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, making it a perfect dish that won't get your hands dirty and is easy to eat. The average price is around ¥3,000 to ¥5,000 per person. The rest depends on the amount of alcohol.


The menu is extensive and everything is delicious! ! The only drawback is that it is difficult to make reservations, and even after the renovation, there are no private rooms. This is proof of its popularity. We don't crowd customers into the store, so there's a good sense of distancing. I enjoyed my meal quietly.
