“Rittoku Gougasha” in Fukushima

A superb Mapo tofu lunch brought to you by a chef who used to work in a leading restaurant!

For lunch today, I went to “Rittoku Gougasha”, a Chinese restaurant in Fukushima. The chef, who worked in a popular Chinese restaurant, went independent and set up Rittoku Gougasha, which has been getting a lot of attention.

Mabo tofu lunch (900 JPY)
The set combines the main dish of Mapo tofu, xiǎo cài pickles, rice, and soup!


It fills a big plate and is a hearty serving!


To start off, I try just the Mabo tofu.


Woooooo, it tastes grrrrrrreat!!

Both the spiciness of the chili peppers and the tongue-numbing spiciness of the sansho peppers pack a punch,
and your mouth is gradually filled with the umami and sweetness of the miso-flavored meat, together with the complex spicy flavors!


Of course, I’m going to scoop it onto my rice and eat them together!


Woooooo, it tastes grrrrrrreat!!
The way that the dish complements the rice is just out of this world, and I just can’t stop eating more and more rice!



This is the deep-fried, seasoned chicken dish, which also features on the lunch menu and was enjoyed by a friend who visited Rittoku Gougasha with me today. I tried one of my friend’s pieces of chicken.


Woooooo, it tastes grrrrrrreat!!
The batter is fragrant and crispy, and the chicken has a unique flavor to it. It’s insanely yummy!



Located in a really convenient spot right near Fukushima Station, the restaurant has counter seating for ten.
The dinner menu also looks really appealing, and without a doubt, I’d bet that every dish tastes great, so I’m also thinking to drop by one night!
