Dinner at a Szechuan restaurant. Check out my friend’s site for Japanese review.
“String” tofu salad. Boiled gyoza.
Mapo tofu. Clear soup with meatballs.
Steamed chicken. Stir-fried vegetables.
Bang bang ji – Szechuan spicy chicken Salad. Fried prawn.
Stir-fried potato. Stir-fried Konjac.
The staff offered to add boiled beansprout to the leftover bang bang ji to make a salad.
Pork cooked in spicy sauce. The sauce is delicious, especially eaten with rice. Though there is not that much pork inside.
Tan Tan noodles, with sauce or without sauce. I had the one without soup at the original restaurant before(see tag), so I tried the one with soup. I like the one with soup better. The portion of the noodles is smaller for each person as we shared, so I could finish and enjoy it before getting tired of the taste.
Almond pudding. Black sesame dumplings.
The food is spicy but is actually okay. Other than the non-spicy dishes, every dish is seasoned with Szechuan pepper. I like mapo tofu, steamed chicken, fried prawn and pork in spicy sauce(you can choose beef or chicken too). I think the food is not bad, and the price is reasonable for Tokyo. But I can’t help feeling that Chinese food ought to be more generous with ingredients and cheaper…

Are the “lui-sa dumpling’ authentic? I love those!
At first I was “huh? You had Szechuan food at Hokkaido?” but it’s before you went right? ^^;; The food looks ‘clean’ and not as oily though.
The sweet dumpling is not bad, the skin is not as chewy and smooth as I like though.
I haven’t written any new entries since we changed to WP…Hokkaido trip report will have to wait. ^^;;;
