Spicy mapo tofu, boiled dumplings and shark fin soup

I was craving spicy mapo tofu the other day and went to Sichuan foods restaurant far from the station in the heavy rain.
There’s so many Chinese foods restaurants in Japan, but still there aren’t much restaurants that serve spicy mapo tofu containing plenty of Sichuan pepper.

Chiba have only two restauratns, I think. This Kawanami and Manzan near Makuhari-Hongo station.
My favorite hamburger restaurant named “Aloha Diner Dukes” is on the first floor of the building. It was regular holiday.

Apperance, Kawanami (Funabashi)

Because of heavy rainfall and strong wind, there was only one group in the restaurant. Though they have usually much guests.

Needless to say, we ordered mapo tofu (麻婆豆腐, 830 yen) and rice. And also cold tea.
Awesome meal !

Its skin had springy texture. Much sesami was contained in the sauce but it was rather spicy 🙂

Also shark fin and crab soup (フカヒレとカニのスープ, 2165 yen)

It is rather inexpensive restaurant, but only shark foods are far more expensive. We realized the high value of shark fin 😛
But this shark fin soup had much pieces of shark fin and it was really tasty.
