“Chinese cuisine Zuicho” in Dojima Hotel

Enjoy a lunch of authentic Szechuan cuisine bursting with high-quality flavor available at a reasonable price at this hotel!

For today’s lunch, I went to “Chinese cuisine Zuicho” in the first basement floor of the Dojima Hotel.
I finally made it back to one of my favorite restaurants for a lunch of authentic Szechuan and Cantonese cuisine!
“Special Mapo Tofu” (1,300 Yen)
Just a glance at this mapo tofu presented elegantly in a generously sized earthenware pot lets you know it is delicious!


First, on its own.


Wow, it’s amazingly good!!
The exotic numbing sensation of the Szechuan peppercorns is balanced superbly with the strong, savory taste of the meat. I feel like Chinese royalty just tasting this!



The lunch set comes with rice, Szechuan pickled vegetable, and soup.


On the rice…


Wow, this is so delicious!!
It goes excellently with the rice (^ ^


“Very Spicy Beef Hot Pot” (1600 Yen)
I shared this dish with a friend who was dining with me.
Just one look at this earthenware bowl with a mound of red peppers lets you know it’s spicy!


I open up a spot between the red peppers and try some of the soup.


Mmmm, it’s outstanding!!
It really is quite spicy, but with a savory body that comes from its numerous ingredients. This dish is so good it’s addictive from the very first taste!


I pick out the soup from under the peppers.


Wow, it’s so delicious!!
The tender beef is juicy and pairs excellently with the savory soup broth!
The flavor is tantalizing, filled with the flavors from ingredients like bamboo shoots, bok choy, and glass noodles.


For desert, I indulged myself with their almond jelly. Overall, a very filling and satisfying dining experience!







This special lunch set is only available on weekdays. Their menu has a number of lunch courses available.


Located in the basement of the Dojima Hotel, this restaurant offers a luxurious and relaxing space to dine!
I highly recommend this restaurant for when you want to experience authentic Szechuan cuisine at a high-class hotel!
