Syouzui/祥瑞 was open in Shizuoka City in busy Ryougae-cho on the 29th of April this year and I finally managed to visit it last night with the Missus!

You can’t miss it!

Customers can purchase take-outs on the first floor while diners will go upstairs!

You can either sit at a central counter…

or at tables in front of the bay window or against the walls.

You will be tempted by the Shanghai Crab Menu!

A very clean place with modern sauce pots and…

modern white tableware!

You can choose one of the two good-value set courses…

or the Shanghai Crab menu, or from the carte. We ordered from the latter!

A friend of ours had recommended their sXiaolongbao/ショロンポウ/large dim sung containing soup.

They were served with fresh shredded ginger!

Mild wasabi Xiaolongbao.

Crab brain Xiaolongbao.

Pork sXiaolongbao.

Next we had vegetables wantan soup!

Crab and shrimp shumai! Particularly delicious!

Very mild maboudoufu/Mapo doufu/麻婆豆腐!

The fried rice was very mild too!

Instead of dessert we had another round of dim sung: Shrimps Xiaolongbao!

The cuisine is of a good level although a bit too mild for some, but the Xiaolongbao and the shumai deserve a visit any time day or night!
