Hi, this is the website for “0 yen! Japanese Lesson”. Come to my class in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. Note that even though my class is “Mian Fei! Ri Yu Jiao Shi” in Chinese characters, my Japanese lesson is not only for Chinese, but for everyone who wants to learn Japanese language.

This morning I went to Watanabe Ameya that is a shop selling “Amemonaka”. The store is in front of Hakusan JR station. It looks like just a house. I hope you can find the shop with red circle in the photo. As usual, the latitude and longitude are as follows;

37.912704,139.030359

i174

This is the entrance of Watanabe Ameya. Actually the wooden board above glass doors tells you the name of shop.

i175

I bought three. They are in the paper bag which is stamped with expiry date.

i176

Japanese words “Ame” means candy. Ame does not sound “EIM”. Anyway, Ame inside Monaka is not hard but is very viscus liquid. This type of Ame is called Mizu-ame. Although Misu means water in Japanese, Mizu-ame is very viscus liquid.

i177

Close up photo. It is soooooooo sweeeeet. Go buy Amemonaka at Watanabe Ameya in front of JR Hakusan Station and eat’em!

新潟の人なら一度は食べたことがあるでしょう。飴最中。今朝はJR越後線 白山駅前の渡辺あめやさんに行って、3個買ってきました。水飴でとても甘いです。私個人の考えですが「甘さ控えめ」が売りのスイーツなんて、間違っています。甘くないと駄目です。甘いのが良いのです。

 

Dinner in Thai Food Restaurant “KORTAI” in Niigata, JAPAN-2

Hi, this is the website for “0 yen! Japanese Lesson”. Come to my class in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. Note that even though my class is “Mian Fei! Ri Yu Jiao Shi” in Chinese characters, my Japanese lesson is not only for Chinese, but for everyone who wants to learn Japanese language.

 

Tonight I went to Thai food restaurant “KORTAI”. It is near ANA Crown Plaza Hotel Niigata. I have been once there in lunch time. After my first visit, I went there twice, but the restaurant was being closed. I heard from a person in Chad, in January, that now Kortai opened only in night time, not in lunch time. So I went there in the evening today.

Actually it may be difficult for you to get there. There is a road toward northeast with angle from the road in front of Rahmen Jiro. There are two restaurants in one building on the left hand side, One is Tempura(てんぷら はせ川) and the other is BBQ(ほるもんやきにく椿商店) restaurants. turn left that corner, you will see yellow rectangular on your left.The longitude and latitude are ;

37.918164,139.060669

But google street view does not show you the very front of KORTAI because the road is very narrow. Anyway I went there just after sunset.

i154

TV showed me a music video clip. You can see a glass of sinful liquid with white bubble on top. Its name is beer.

i155

I ordered Gapao Rice. The lady in the restaurant told me to pour fish sauce or Nampura onto egg.

i156

Yes I did what she said.

i157

It was so nice. I strongly recommend you eating Thai food in “KORTAI” in Niigata.

i158

まだ英語での紹介がすんでいませんでした。前回はグリーンカレーだったので、お店の人のおすすめでガパオライスを食べてみました。「辛いの大丈夫?」と何度か念を押されましたが、辛さはさほど感じませんでした。とても美味しかったです。わたし的には、近くの某ラーメン屋で行列するくらいなら、こっちの方が良いと思います(いや、だから個人的見解ですので、、、)。ナンプラーの臭さって、これはやみつきになって良いものでしょうか・・・。また行きたいですね、クワタイ。

Dipping the nan into curry…..do you want to eat? By the way, their curry has five ranks from hottest (5) to mild for kids(1). Last time I chose (2), so this time I tried (3). I tasted that rank three(3) is kinda best fit for me.

ビールを注文したら、塩っぱいクラッカーのようなものをつまみに出してくれました。某種料理店のように、アルコールにお通し代が加算されたりはしません。辛さ段階は前回の2からアップして3に挑戦。私にはちょうどいいくらいでした。次に4に進むかというと、あまり無理はせず、3で良いような気がします。
