Creative Chinese Enishi in Shinsaibashi

We went to meet the greatest Mapo Tofu EVER!

We had dinner at “Sosaku Chuka Enishi” in Shinsaibashi.
This store, which presumably has been in business here for over 10 years, has always been on my list of places to try, but didn’t have a chance until now!
Many attractive items are on both the regular and blackboard menus, and they all sound amazing!

Two brothers run this counter-seating only restaurant in the basement of a building.
The restaurant was full with guests with reservations. Please make reservations before you visit.
