Branch of popular Chinese noodles restaurant named Mazulu in China was open in Jinbocho in Japan. I heard they have 100 years history.
They were featured so much by TV and website of not only Japan but also China from just after the opening.
I like Chinese beef noodles. I usually eat it when I visit Taiwan and China.
They are close to A7 entrance of Jinbocho subway station. It takes about 3-4 minutes. Their signboard is green and outstanding. So, I don’t think you miss out.
Large restaurant and foods served quickly
We got to there around 1:40 p.m. on Sunday, but there were already about 20 people waiting in line. But there are about 50 seats. And they serve beef noodles only. So, we could enter the restaurant 30 minutes later. I think they don’t wait so long like normal ramen shops.
Menu and how to order
There’s order counter at the entrance.
At first, we order and pay. And then sit down.
This is the menu.で、They have Lanzu Beef noodles (蘭州牛肉面 / 兰州牛肉面, 880 yen) only. Many Chinese people visit there, so they have Chinese menu, too.
There’re three types of noodles. Standard narrow noodles, wide noodles like Kishimen, and triangle noodles. They recommended narrow noodles to first visitors.
And they offer extra coriander (パクチーの大盛り, 120 yen) and extra beef (牛肉の大盛り, 200円).
They adjust the amount of coriander and chili oil.
They have Halal certification.
Light beef noodles
I ordered beef noodles with extra coriander.
extra coriander was served separately. And green tea was served with noodles.
I heard they make noodles after taking order. But they serve noodles very quickly because they keep making noodles.
The soup have beef bone broth. It’s light. And the red chili oil looks spicy. But actually it’s not too spicy.
Five-spice powder, coriander, star anise… ! The smell of Chinese continents ! 🙂
I remember I didn’t like the smell… but now I love it.
This is triangle noodles. Umm. It’s looks not triangle. It’s like mountain. Certainly, this noodles were dressed with coriander and oup well. The noodles had springy texture. Delicious. It’s not shapely but because of that, it looks handmade. Purpose? :p
A few minutes later, I put much coriander. The soup is light. and adding much coriander is good.
The ingredients were… coriander, thinly sliced beef, daikon radish. And dice beef was at the bottom of the soup. The dice beef was better than sliced beef.
When we finished eating, it was around 3 p.m. But there were still much people waiting in line.
