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.

37.920680,139.047734

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

i133

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.

37.917319,139.037530

STAR INDIA CURRY RESTAURANT

i122

The behind Beer and salad is two pieces of salty crackers.

i123

Shish kebab. Actually it was so good as a snack with Beer.

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 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。

 

 

Lunch at Chinese Restaurant “Houryuu (Peng Long)” -2

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 on Wednesday night and Saturday afternoon. Please check the latest information on this site for the exact time and room numbers. The nearest bus stop is Ishizuecho, however some buses don’t stop at this bus stop. In such a case, please get off a bus at Honcho and come back a little to the direction of Shinano River. The instructor has finished “Japanese Language Teacher Training Course (420 hours and above) and passed the “Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test” administered by the Japan Educational Exchanges and Services on October 22, 2017.

I went today to a Chinese Restaurant “Houryuu” in Honcho. There is an old shopping mall in Honcho, Niigata. At the end of the street with roof, you will find “Oumi Shopping Center”. Houryu is just behind the door. For your convenience, the latitude and longitude are;

37.920115,139.046342

The red roof and red cloth indicate there is a Chinese restaurant.

i102

I visited there around 1p.m. When I sat at the table, I was only one in the restaurant. But so many people came then.

i103

Anyway this is my Mabo Rahmen.

i104

Of course I left a package of “Advertisement Tissue” there. It was Chinese version. I have to go to Thai and India restaurants to distribute English version of it. Please go to Houryuu and eat a lot of Chinese Food! Note that the restaurant closes in a little early evening because Oumi shopping center closes everyday around 5 p.m. or so.

 

Dinner at Chinese Restaurant “Yasuya (Anjia)”-1

Hi, this is the website for “0 yen! Japanese Lesson” which is taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. Come to my class on Wednesday night and Saturday afternoon. Please check the latest information on this site for the exact time and room numbers. The nearest bus stop is Ishizuecho, however some buses don’t stop at this bus stop. In such a case, please get off a bus at Honcho and come back a little to the direction of Shinano River. The instructor has finished “Japanese Language Teacher Training Course (420 hours and above) and passed the “Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test” administered by the Japan Educational Exchanges and Services on October 22, 2017.

And tonight I went to Yasuya in Minatomachidori 3 nocho for my dinner. It is a Chinese restaurant actually famous for its reasonable menu. The restaurant is located in 200 meter southwest from Shimuzu Food Center Minatomachi-ten. For accurate location, please google the latitude and longitude below.

37.928637,139.052982

It was windy and rainy, but somehow I could get to the restaurant in the residential area.

i095

I ordered a 1-go (180ml) of Japanese Sake. The lady poured sake a lot to the Tokkuri bottle. It seemed to be more than 180ml. As you see in the photo, the color of label changed from yellow to light green. Soon you will see this “paper towel for promotion” in Korean, Chinese, Thai, and India restaurants around Furumachi (hope so).

i092

Actually I try to eat less oil because my health check in May 2018 said that my cholesterol level is too high. So I changed my eating habit. I haven’t taken much oil these days. It sometimes makes me crazy for oily food, so tonight, I broke my rule not to eat oily food. I ordered a Yuurinchii (油淋鶏yóulínjī) set.

i093

Ah, it was a big fried chicken. My dinner costed 1,026 JPY. Youlinji set menu was 550yen, one tokkuri of sake was 400yen, and 8% of sales tax. Anyway I strongly recommend you going to “Yasuya” and eating a lot of Chinese food.

i094

When I gave the lady “Promotion paper towel”, I asked her “Zhong guo ren lai ma?” I meant “Do Chinese come (to this restaurant)?” hoping that she gave it to Chinese customers. She didn’t get what I said a while. When I opened the door to leave, she has got it and said “Zhong guo ren lai ma?”.  I was so happy that my simple Chinese was understood by her.

Dinner at Chinese Restaurant “Mampukuen (Wanfuyuan)” -2

Hi, this is the website for “0 yen! Japanese Lesson”. The lesson is usually done on Wednesday night and Saturday afternoon.

37.920680,139.047734

It was a just before 9 p.m., already a little late for dinner. So there was only one customer other than me.

i088

A glass of Chinese sake makes me feel better. Ten packs of paper towel with yellow label are advertisement of my Japanese Lesson. I am not sure but I think I made 160 of this. This in the photo is actually the last 16th. I gave it to the lady in the restaurant. Last time I gave the same 10 packs. She said she gave it to “Liuxuesheng” which means international student(s).

i089

I ordered Hoikourou (回鍋肉, 回锅肉, huíguōròu) set menu. Can you believe this costs only 650 yen? Since the glass of Chinese sake “Shoukoushu” is 380 yen, my dinner was just 1,030 yen. I think this is the cheapest combination of set menu and one glass of alcohol. In other restaurant, it costs more.

i090

It is said that Chinese Food in Japan is different so much from the original Chinese food. This Hoikourou dish was cooked by Chinese in Niigata. But I don’t know whether the taste is different from real Chinese food or not. Actually it was salty, but it’s okay. Prices are very reasonable and the lady is very polite. Go there and eat a lot of Chinese food!

i091

2019年5軒目は・・・ちょっと私としては外食しすぎな感じになってきましたが、竹山病院前の萬福園です。ホイコーロー定食を食べました。たった1030円しか払わないくせに、黄色いティッシュで協力要請するずうずうしい私でごさいます。すみません。ちょっと遅い時間に行ったので、前回と違ってひっそりとしていました。

 

Dinner in Chinese Restaurant “Harbin Can ting” -2

Hi, this is the website for “0yen! Japanese Lesson”. The lessons are usually done on Wednesday night and Saturday afternoon. Exact times and room numbers are shown in this web site, please check them out and come to my class. The classes are taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata. The instructor has finished “Japanese Language Teacher Training Course (420 hours and above) and passed the “Japanese Language Teaching Competency Test” administered by the Japan Educational Exchanges and Services on October 22, 2017.

Last night I went to Haerbin Canting (hā ěr bīn cān tīng, 哈尔滨餐厅, Harupin Sancho, Halupin Sancho, Harubin Sanchou, Harbin Restaurant) for my dinner. The restaurant is located in Furumachi. Please google the following latitude and longitude.

37.924173,139.045419

It is Furumachi but one or two blocks north of the main street Masayakoji on which the buses run. This red thing welcomes you.

i081

I ordered BBQ pork on steamed rice, 750 yen. Sake was “Kikusui” ichi-go (means 180ml), 320 yen. In total, my dinner was just 1,070 yen. Don’t you think it’s reasonable? Steamed rice is hidden under the BBQed pork. Actually the pork was a little salty, which may not be good for your health but good for “an accompaniment” of Sake. I liked these “a lot of Onion”. Zaasai on the left is also a little salty, I prefer less salty side dishes. But anyway, I should not say any complaint because they are working hard all the night.

i083

When I paid and left, I asked the lady of the restaurant whether or not Harbin is the city that holds the ice festival in this time around. She said yes. I have never been to Harbin, let alone the ice festival. But I just thought I would like to visit and look at the objet d’art made of ice in Harbin someday. And I thought she should be missing her hometown.

i082

昨晩行った、食べ歩き3軒目は中華料理の「ハルピン」でした。夜9時頃行ったのですが、他のお客さんはいませんでした。お肉が食べたかったので、焼肉飯¥750にしてみました。タマネギたっぷりは悪くないです。お酒は毎回紹興酒だとコストがかかりますので、今回は菊水にしました。一合¥320は安いと思います。合計1070円。韓国料理より安いのは、確かです。お店の人に、氷祭りがあるのはハルピンですか?と聞いたら、そうだと言いました。きっと、故郷が懐かしいでしょうね。

Dinner in Chinese Restaurant “Toushouhanten” -2

Exact times and room numbers are shown in this web site, please check them out and come to my class. The classes are taken place in “CROSS PAL NIIGATA” in Ishizuecho, Niigata.

But learning in my class brings you warmth and comfortable experiences of Japanese language learning. The instructor has finished 420 hours Japanese teaching training course and has got a certification of Japanese teaching.

Anyway, tonight I went to Toushouhanten (腾翔饭店) for dinner. Black vinegar pork course was 780yen, and 180mm Sake was 520 yen. In total, it was just 1300 yen. The good news is that you don’t need to pay tip in Japan. This makes my life easier. The restaurant is located on the following latitude and longitude. Google them! and go eat their Chinese food!

今日は、1月の授業予定を書いたフライヤーをチヂミへ持って行って、貼ってもらおうと考えていたのですが、日曜日にもかかわらず、チヂミはいっぱいだったので、入るのはやめました。そこで、近くにありながら、まだ攻略していなかった萬福園に行ってみました。

外からのぞくと、そんなにお客さんが入っていないように見えましたが、中に入ってみたら、結構にぎやかでした。中国のお客さんが多くて、まるで中国にいるような気分になりました。例の黄色い宣伝ティッシュは、自分からお客さんにばらまきたい気分になりました。

注文したのはカメダシ紹興酒と青椒肉絲定食です。カメダシ紹興酒の甕出しは、メニューに半角カタカナでカメダシと書いてありました。だからどうなのかというと、どうでもいいんですが、お店の人はビンから注いでいました。わたくし的には、甕から出そうと、瓶からだそうと、どちらでもいいです。そういう細かい所はこだわらない人間でありたいと思います。たぶん、瓶に入る前は甕に入っていたのでしょう。

チンジャオロース定食の方ですが、冷や奴はカツブシが載っていて、普通です。スープは塩っぱくなくて、グッドです。高菜あるいは野沢菜の漬け物、これは相当グッドです。本体の青椒肉絲はちょっとお肉が少なめでしたが、なにせこの定食、たったの650円です。不平不満を言う方が間違っています。すごい。勤労の貴さといいますか、頭が下がります。紹興酒でほろ酔い加減になって、合計1,030円。お店の人の人柄も良さそうで、こちらの萬福園さんのお客さんが多いのも頷けます。でも個人的にはすぐ近くの騰翔飯店ががらがらなのがちょっとかわいそうな気がします。
