suikoen & nihao

Back in October last year when we visited Tokyo, we had tried Nihao's gyoza, little did we know we would live 20 minutes walking distance from this place!

One of the first things we noticed about Kamata and the surrounding areas after moving here is that there are tons of Chinese restaurants, I would say there are more than the amount of convenience stores!

IMG_4384 We tried Suikoen on the day we moved into the apartment.

This was after we got things done at the city office.

The nice thing about Suikoen is that they have 300 yen plates and the servings are quite generous.

We ordered 5 different things(because we didn’t think the servings would be too big)...this pork stir-fry.

IMG_4386 gyoza and shrimp with mayo sauce (not pictured).

Super cheap eats.

IMG_4404 shiru-nashi tan tan men (this is spicy noodles without soup) be sure to mix this well as all the sauce that they serve this with is at the bottom.

There are many other Chinese restaurants that I am sure we will check out, but I have also noticed that there are Thai and Vietnamese restaurants too, so hopefully I can try them for lunch.
