Dinner at Chinese Restaurant “Mampukuen (Wanfuyuan)” -3

Hi, this is the website for “0 yen! Japanese Lesson”. Come to my class that is taken place 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.

Wednesday night I went to Manpukuen in Honcho for my dinner. The restaurant is in front of Takeyama Hospital. It is near the back door of Itoyokado supermarket. Please google the latitude and longitude below for exact location.

It was a just before 9 p.m., already a little late for dinner. There were two Japanese customers other than me.

What should we think about drinking this kind of liquids? One of my answers is that, if I ordered only food menu, this Chinese restaurant could get a very few profit because prices of dishes are surprisingly cheap. I don’t ask to make this hot or cold, but I only ask them to serve this as “room temperature”. So it is not labor-consuming for them to serve this to me.

i134

Here is my dinner. Egg plants something—I forgot the name.

As always, this thing should be left. The lady in the restaurant received this and gave me a lot of cookies. Thanks a lot, I do appreciate them.

Dinner at Thai Food Restaurant “Thai Fight Gold” in Furumachi -1

Hi, this is the website for “0 yen! Japanese Lesson”. Come to my class that is taken place 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 a Thai food restaurant “Thai Fight Gold” in Furumachi 8-banchi. It is one block north from the Bus route, the opposite side of road of Niigata City Hotel. Please use the following latitude and longitude for google maps.

Website of “Thai Fight Gold”

It is on the second floor (in British sense, the first floor), but you will easily find the place because these boards are put around the entrance.

i128

Because it’s the center of night entertainment area of Furumachi, and the inside of the restaurant looked like a night club, I actually worried about the charge they would ask my to pay.

i129

For the first time in a Thai food restaurant, I always order Green Curry.

i130

The lady in the restaurant told me that these pieces of red pepper were so hot. Thanks to her advice, I got rid of them to avoid a fire incident in my mouth. If a fire had happened, my beer would have been a fire extinguisher. Luckily enough that did not happen.

You see green leaves as well as red pepper. I asked the lady and chef what herb this was. He said like “Holaper” (Sorry for misspelling, I don’t know the correct one). The herb had so good flavor that I wanted to plant it on my garden. Checking on the internet, it seems to be “sweet basil”. Let me plant seeds of it in back of my house some day.

i131

Here came the Advertisement paper towel of my Japanese lesson. When I paid, I handed this to the lady. Although one of my concerns was that the charge would be expensive in such a night club like place, it was quite reasonable! Don’t worry about that, you guys. This is very good Thai restaurant. Actually people in Chad recommended me coming here. I also strongly recommend you. Go eat a lot of Thai food in “Thai Fight Gold”!

またまた1,730円ぽっちで、宣伝ティッシュを 配ってください などとお願いする ずうずうしいおっさんです。グリーンカレーにのっているハーブは何ですかときいたら「ボラパー」というふうにおっしゃっていました。ネットで調べたらスウィートバジルだそうで、きっと種も売っていることでしょう。春が来たら、畑に植えてみたいです。

i124

Yes, this is my whole dinner tonight.

i125

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.

i126

I didn’t leave my Advertisement paper towel like this. I handed it to the person in the restaurant. Anyway it was so good. If you want to eat Indian&Nepali food, go and eat a lot in STAR!

i127

 

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。

 

 

Dinner at “Korean Dining Lu(:)”

Hi, this is the website for “0yen! Japanese Lesson”. The classes are taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. Hurry up, ‘cause the instructor’s schedule is becoming busy right now.

This is the first time that Korean Dining “Lu” appears on my blog. It is located at two blocks south of Mitsukoshi department store, and on the opposite side of Shimizu Food Center. Mitsukoshi Department store will soon be closed and I am afraid of giving you an inaccurate information. So please use the following numbers on Google maps.

Korean Dining 루Lu(:) on Twitter

I forgot to take a picture of the outside of the restaurant. So my photo starts from a cup of Makgeolli. When I ordered, I thought “Ah, it will be just a little of Makkolli in small glass”. But they gave me more Makkori in bigger cup than I expected.

i119

Anyway, it is always Sundubu jjigae in the new Korean restaurant.

i120

Clam without shells.

i121

The dining is very clean. Actually I thought the clean restaurant serves expensive meal. But I should say, it had been just my prejudice. The charges I paid was quite reasonable in this Korean restaurant “Korean Dining Lu(:)”.

 

Dinner in Chinese Restaurant “Harupin Sancho (Harbin Can ting)”-3

Hi, this is the website for “0yen! Japanese Lesson”. The classes are taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. Hurry up, ‘cause the instructor’s schedule is becoming busy right now.

On Wednesday I went to Haerbin Canting (hā ěr bīn cān tīng, 哈尔滨餐厅, Harupin Sancho, Halupin Sancho, Harubin Sanchou, Harbin Restaurant) in Furumachi. It was for my dinner. For your convenience, the following is latitude and longitude for Google maps.

37.924173,139.045419

To tell the truth, I went to Tosho-hanten in Honcho first. But the restaurant was closed because now is the time of Chinese New Year. They are having a long vacation. I wish the family take a good rest and come back to Niigata in March. What was in my head was Shrimp with Chili sauce when I was heading to Tosho-Hanten. I saw the restaurant was being closed and then I turned to Harpin Canting.

i115

My mind was so much occupied with Chili Sauced Shrimp, as I got to Harbin Canting, I immediately ordered it and rice without checking the menu. Actually I should have ordered “Ebi Tama Han” which was a set menu with several dishes with chili sauced shrimp. But I think it is okay, because sometimes it is good to have a simple meal like you see in the photo.

i116

Japanese call this famous Chinese food dish “Ebichili”.

By the way, this is Harbin Can ting. So the name of the restaurant tells us that they came from the northern part of China. I asked the lady in the restaurant, with several Chinese restaurants’ names in Niigata, if there was a  Chinese restaurant whose cook came from the southern part of China. She was not sure. Even she was not sure for names of other Chinese restaurants. Although I had an impression that Chinese people would have a strong tie with other Chinese as a network in a foreign country like here, maybe I am not correct. Perhaps it is because this Harupinsancho is located in the center of night entertainment area of Furumachi. The customers are coming midnight and early morning. Open hours of this restaurant are different from other Chinese restaurants in Honcho. So she has less time to communicate with other Chinese. But these are just my guesses.

i117

Of course I left this package. When I asked her “Zhong guo ren lai ma?” She answered to me “Lai”. This time my Chinese was smoothly understood.

i118

中華料理の「ハルピン」も3回目。前回はティッシュを持って行きませんでしたが、今回は置いてきました。騰翔飯店が一ヶ月休むのにたいして、こちらのお店は休みなしだそうです。お仕事お疲れ様です。

 

 

Dinner in Korean Restaurant “Sumire” -3

Hi, this is the website for “0yen! Japanese Lesson”.  The classes are taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Please check the latest information on this site. I am looking forward to seeing you in my Japanese lesson.

Anyway, I have just had my dinner in Sumire (すみれ) which is a Korean restaurant in Furumachi. The lady in the restaurant is very friendly. You can enjoy talking to her. Find the place using the following latitude and longitude with Google maps.

37.925554,139.045991

This is the third time for me to come to Sumire. Tonight there were two “Joren” customers. Joren means a customer who visits the restaurant quite often and is known to the master well. I am a kind of new guy here, so tonight I just tried being silent(:D). But, you know, it is also a fun to listen to what other customers say. I enjoyed hearing their stories and eating Kimchi chige.

I could see several new things tonight. The board is new with an illustration of Korean lady.

i112

Beer and side dishes. You can see the corner of “Menu” on right side of the photo. It seemed that the menu was also recently made.

i113

Boiling Kimchi chigae with a lot of Tofu inside. What is the border line between Kimchi chigae and Dupu Chigae? Although it is not a big issue.

i114

とうとう3回目の韓国家庭料理「すみれ」、旧松屋さんです。以前はソルラルに特別に料理を作っておられたそうですが、もうしなくなったそうです。私はキムチチゲをいただきました。私自身はマッコルリはとても素人ですが、今日いただいた一杯は、とても本格的なお味がしました。

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.

Anyway my purpose is not only having a lunch but also to leave this stuff in the restaurant where foreign people come.

i108

Every times I came to a new Thai food restaurant, I order Green Curry. It is must. While waiting for the curry, the salad had gone into my stomach.

i109

Yeah, it is the green curry.

i110

Do you want to eat it? Then go to Chad in International Barcode.
