Dinner at the top rated Chinese/Sichuan Cuisine restaurant in Nagoya. Of course the menu follows the traditional Kaiseki sequence but it is infused with Chinese dishes and flavors.
Some excellent dishes like the Fugu no karaage, the kani spring roll, the uni shirkao pasta. However the fireworks came at the very end. A spicy , creamy soup became the base for a shabu-shabu. The leftover soup then was used for the homemade ramen noodles. Delicious. The dinner was rounded off with a choice of fried rice or the ultimate Chinese comfort food, the mapo tofu. When done probably it is just great, the combination of chili, Sancho pepper and the umami of the ground pork is hard to beat.
Of course we ordered both.
