Shinjuku Sanchome : Ethnic foods at studio KUKUL kan

Notice : This restaurant has been closed for years (12nd, October, 2015)


I went to eat at “studio KUKUL-kan” at Shinjuku a week ago.
I had eaten ethnic foods few times, so I hadn’t eaten almost all dishes that the restaurant served.
Every time dishes came, I was surprised, and thought how to eat 😛

エスニック料理のお店に誘われて行ってきました。ほとんど食べたことのない料理ばかりで楽しかったです(^^)

This is the entrance of the building. I hesitated to enter the building. It didn’ seem that there are any restaurant in it.

The steers are steep and being crooked, so I went upstairs with watching my step.
This restaurant is so narrow that can accept about 7 person, maybe.
The restaurant’s owner said that 9 persons came in the restaurant a few days before.
I can’t believe it. How ?

Bak kut teh (バクテー)
I heard that it is a Malaysian cuisine.It was good with a lot of gingers and spices in it.

まず出てきたのはマレーシア料理のバクテー。

Entrails were cut a little on the big side in it.
I tried to lift up the meat by spoon :).

骨からつるんとはがれるお肉。スープもおいしい。

Assorted sashimi (刺し盛り)
Upper – young yellowtail. Bottom- from left young yellowtail tossed with mayonnaise, cuttlefish, horse mackerel namerou(with sambal).
At first I didn’t recognize what it was. Because in addition to subdued lighting, I had a bias that ethnic food restaurant never serves raw fishes.
But these were sashimi.

エスニック料理は生魚を使わないって聞くけど、こちらでは生のお刺身を出してます。

We ate sashimi with sambal.

お刺身はこの自家製サンバルと一緒にいただきます。

This restaurant serves “Sambal Cuisine”
Speaking of “Sambal”, only I knew was waterly curry of India, but this restaurant says “Sambal” is seasoning that is eaten in Southeast Asia.
It is not so spicy but salty strongly.

Lamb gyoza (ラム餃子)
My friend also gyoza with sambal on it. 🙂
Its skins had springly texture.

ミステリーサークルみたいなのが!!!

I didn’t know what to do about it 🙁

At first mixing it, and then eating. It was sweet. Peanuts butter and sesami in it, maybe.
Many kinds of texture were in my mouth.

Nuts, lettuce, deep fried tofu (atsuage),bean sprouts, and deep fried shirataki without coat.

これはガドガドというインドネシアの料理で全体をよく混ぜて食べるもの。ピーナッツベースでおいしい。

Yakisoba (焼きそば). Yakisoba usually have a lot of oils and thick taste, But it tasted light.
My friend next to me put a lot of corianders on it, so I did, too.

Curry with horse mackerel (アジカレー)
Much deep fried horse mackerels with no coat were in the curry.
In addition to horse mackerel, it had green onions and so forth in it. It had much ingredients 🙂
