Chinese Cuisine & Restaurants

SHIKINJO (revisited)

shichi-1

Shizuoka City is lucky to count one real Chinese Restaurant whose owner and staff are all from Beijing!
The Missus and I visit regularly. The main chef has changed, meaning that some seafood dishes have been added!
Here is what we enjoyed last Sunday (sorry for the late posting!)

shichi-2
Half-raw potato salad, a great appetizer with the first drink (beer in that case).

shichi-3
Deep-fried seafood Spring rolls.

shichi-4 shichi-5
Time for the dim sung: steamed gyooza/dumplings. Above are pork dumplings.

shichi-6 shichi-7
Carrot dumplings.

shichi-8
A favourite: deep-fried pork balls. And a must as the Missus have given up of reproducing at home!

shichi-9
Sauteed grens with minced pork meat and rice vermicelli for the Vitamin C!

shichi-10
Shikinjo has great old Chinese rice wines that I never fail to taste (at room temperature)! That’s when the Missus switch to Chinese Great Wall white wine!

shichi-111
As we still had some space left in our stomachs, fried (sauteed) seafood gyooza and

shichi-12
boiled seafood dumplings!

No more space left for dessert!
Pity as they have some great home-made almond curd!

SHIKINJO

On Thursday, march 22nd, My better (worse?) half and I decided to pay a long overdue visit to our favourite Chinese Restaurant in Shizuoka City, Shikinjo.

The exterior would not hint of the quality of the food to tell the truth, but they are full to very full every day if that is a sufficient explanation! The interior is clean if old, and there is enough space to move around. The welcome is warm from beginning to end!
The owner and his whole family are from Beijing and specialize in “Gyoza” (Chinese dumplings).

They offer them fried, boiled or steamed with 3 or 4 different fillings. They also at least 3 more kinds of dumplings (I have problems with names, sorry!)
You will not find “Ramen” there, thanks Bacchus and Odin!
On the other hand their deep-fried minced pork balls,

Sauteed pork and greens,

and the home-made “piitan”

would warrant the visit!
As for groups they offer vey good value with set courses for 2,000 yen (10 dishes), 3,000 yen (16 dishes), 4,000 yen (16 dishes) and 6,000 yen (18 dishes) per person. They also have a 2,00 yen drinking course per person for 2 and a half hours.
They also have 8 different Chinese rice wines up to 58% alcohol, Chinese beer and a surprisingly refreshing Chinese white wine!

One thought on “Chinese Cuisine & Restaurants”

  1. Wow, get out! 2,000 yen for 10 dishes? My goodness, that sounds too good to be true!

    Five to six dishes in a chinese restaurant in NYC would about 7000 yen! But I guess it’ll be worth it if you go in a group.

    A dish of dumpling is about 450 yen! And here I thought everything in Japan is overpriced! Wow, I must visit! And I’m even more impressed that the owners/chef are from Shanghai. That’s real authentic chinese right there.
