When my acquaintance who is foodie heard about our visiting Nagoya, he recommended Manchinken that is Chinese foods restaurant next to Nagoya station.
Manchinken is located within 5 minutes walk from Nakamura Kuyakusho station.
Its signboard like full moon is attracting and outstanding.
No.1 Tamagotoji ramen
There were lots of people waiting there when we got to there ! Many people around this area come here and have alcoholic drinks after work 🙂
There’s a paper in front of the entrance for waiting. We wrote and wait for a while.
This restaurant is quite large, so though there were lots of people, we could be seated within 15 minutes.
There’s upstairs and we can party there. But it is very popular and it is hard to reserve.
There were several chefs in the kitchen area.
Our acquaintance said that this shop’s tamagotoji ramen (玉子とじラーメン, 700 yen) is good.
Tamagotoji is a way of cooking. Beaten egg is poured before shutting off the fire. The eggs are cooked by remaining fire.
Normal tamagotoji ramen was mild. The soup had chicken broth and extract of pork bone.
And tamagotoji tantanmen noodles (玉子とじ担担麺, 850 yen) is more spicy than expected. I like it.
The curly noodles dressed with eggs and soup was delicious.
I wanted to drink the soup up 🙂
Smaller size of gyoza (餃子, 400 yen) was good, too 🙂
Sichuan-style mapo eggplant and rice (なす飯, 680 yen). Though the menu says “Sichuan-style”. Speaking of Sichuan-style, we think everything is spicy like mapo tofu. But it was mild. By the way, we were two.
They serve various Chinese foods, so we have to go there again 🙂
