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 ;

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.

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。

英語での紹介が終わったお店の2巡目は、やさしい日本語を復活させます。今日は飲み放題の人達がいて、「食べ物は要らないけど、もっと飲む」とかいって、次々飲み物だけ注文していました。赤字にならないことを祈ります。先日は「中国人来吗?」をなんとか理解していただいたので、今日は「请问,您是什么地方来的? 北方人还是南方人吗?」とまあ、ここまで聞いて見たかったのですが、とても忙しそうだったので、聞きそびれました。

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.

帰り際、お母さんからたくさんクッキーをいただきました。ありがとうございます。

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.
