Mabo Tofu “Chinese Restaurant Souryukyo”

My first mabo tofu in ages was, as expected, way too Yummy!

For today’s lunch, I went to the Chinese restaurant “Chugoku Shokufu Soryukyo” in front of JR Temma Station.
I went there because I hadn’t eaten this shop’s mabo dofu in a while, and I couldn’t bear it anymore(^^)

“Mabo Tofu Set” (800 yen)
Mabo Tofu ordered “extra-spicy”, Yuba Gyoza, Shrimp Shumai, Soup, Salad, and Rice with a second helping for free. It’s a hefty meal!


This bowl is actually very deep, and the amount is enormous!


Take a spoonful and…


Mmm, tastes so GOOD!!
The combination of the sauce’s intense umami and straightforward spiciness of the chilli pepper is a taste explosion!
It had been a while, but this taste is so addicting anytime I eat this(^^)


Of course, I’ll eat it with white rice and…


Mmm, tastes so GOOD!!
I can eat rice like this forever(^^)

Egg soup…


The soup tastes exquisite and has refined umami!

The salad has a lot of cabbage and very hearty!

There’s even a drink at the end, and it’s all just 800 yen, a great price!
All the other lunch menus are tempting too!

The shopkeeper, Jin told me that, “The 4th floor is made into a banquet room too!” and showed it to me!
When the restaurant just opened, it only had the 1st and 2nd floors of the building, but eventually the 3rd floor was also added, and finally the 5th floor was turned into the restaurant as well!
Even so, all the tables are packed with reservations every day!
What an amazing shop…(^^)


I went in the shop at around 1 pm, but as expected the 1st and 2nd floors were both packed, so I had to wait a while and I finally got a seat sharing a table!
The popularity is really amazing!
The location is great, being in front of Temma Station, the shop looks nice and has a wide variety of delicious and low-priced dishes; The shopkeeper Jin has a wonderful personality, and the shop has all the elements of a trendy restaurant. All that must make up this popularity!
Next time I will come with a large group to have a party at a big table(^^)
