I always had a curiosity about this little neighborhood Chinese restaurant because it consistently had a steady flow of customers... only 2 shops down there is another Chinese spot thats usually empty.
Decided to try this weeks "Service Teishoku" that consisted of 5 different dishes for 800yen.
Counter seating facing the Chef.
Comfy counter seats.
Japan's baseball season has begun... game playing in the top monitor.
Help your self water.
The chef was a bit hunched over and I had a feeling that part of the attraction here was in support of this guy. There was a warmness to this shop...
And so little did I know how far 800yen can take you in a tiny neighborhood Chinese restaurant that is Kouka... my 3 sides first came...
Followed by the main dish... Chinese cabbage with Chicken in a tasty creamy spicy sauce.
Order wasn't complete yet...
And another dish arrived...
This was honestly waaaay to much for me at midnight... phew. But overall it was a great late night dinner. Just felt like home cooking. I'll definitely be back to try out another weekly special.
Just 3 shops down from Ramen Jiro
