There are many Chinese restaurants in Kyoto but few are authentic.
You do have to look deep into the back streets to find them!
Shichifukuya (the h\House of the Seven Lucks) is one of them, and although it was our second visit we did have some trouble finding it in the dark of the night!
It was apparently a Japanese restaurant years before the present owners moved in 8 years ago, and they did change little of it. It is old but clean. But after all the food is the most important!
Apparently they have a lot of regulars with their own bottles!
Apart of a good list of old Chinese spirits they provide all kinds of drinks, including Japanese sake!
Home-made Chinese pickles!
Pitan eggs/Century egg and vegetable salad!
For a better view of the Century eggs!
Spicy shrimp omelet!
For a better view!
Very original egg fried rice with beaten egg whites!
No need for dessert!
