Grilled Xiaolongbao (小龍包) with rich meat juices
Most popular dish among them is grilled Xiaolongbao “小龍包” (380 yen/ 4 pieces). Various kinds of wheat flour are mixed to make it sticky mouthfeel. Their original recipe gives delicious taste of meat. You can enjoy rich meat juice after crispy mouthfeel of its skin.
Xiaolongbao (小龍包) is a type of steamed bun or baozi from the Jiangnan region of China (especially Shanghai and Wuxi). It is traditionally steamed in small bamboo baskets, hence the name (xiaolong is literally small steaming basket). Xiaolongbao are often referred to as soup dumplings or simply dumplings in English, but are not regarded as dumplings inChina.
Xiaolongbao are known as siohlon-meudoe in Shanghainese (simplified Chinese: 小笼馒头; traditional Chinese: 小籠饅頭; pinyin: xiǎolóng mántóu). Mantou describes both filled and unfilled buns in northern China, but only describes unfilled buns in southern China.
“Youtiao” (油条) & “yáng ròu chuan” (羊肉串)
Youtiao, also known as the Chinese cruller, Chinese oil stick, Chinese doughnut, and fried breadstick, is a long golden-brown deep-fried strip of dough eaten in Chinese and (by a variety of other names) in other East and Southeast Asian cuisines. Conventionally, youtiao are lightly salted and made so they can be torn lengthwise in two. Youtiao are normally eaten at breakfast as an accompaniment for rice congee or soy milk.
Another recommendation of “Heisei-fukujunn” is “yáng ròu chuan” (羊肉串). Broiled mutton meat on a skewer is not so tasty but rather savory and crispy. One bite of this dish makes you being like in eating at a street stall inBeijing. Skewered mutton is broiled after putting a lot of Chinese spice “zī rán” and is only 100 yen a piece.
It is a local dish from “Yanbian” （延辺） district in the North-east of China. Yanbian （延辺） is a Korean Autonomous Prefecture in southeastern province of Jilin,People’s Republic of China, just north of the border with North Korea. Yanbian is bordered to the north by Heilongjiang, on the west by Baishan City and Jilin City, on the south by North Hamgyong Province of North Korea, and on the east by Primorsky Krai of Russia. Yanbian is designated as an autonomous prefecture due to the large number of ethnic Koreans living in the region.
While you are waiting dishes, you may realize that standard language among store staff is totally Chinese.
And most guests around you are also Chinese people.
You feel something you were at a street stall in Hong Kong or some place inChina.
