Chinese Cuisine: Dinner at Shikinjyo (July 2011)!

Service: Very friendly
Equipment: Very clean. Traditional
Prices: reasonable
Strong Points: Beijing gastronomy. Dumplings. Old Chinese rice wines

Is had been quite some time since I visited Shinkinjyo, a Chinese restaurant whose owner and all staff come from Beijing.
They serve authentic Chinese gastronomy and endeavor to introduce new dishes from time to time. All ingredients are fresh and their dumplings are simply first class, without any pretention or ostentation.

They have regular dishes that will never disappear fortunately and we always order them while trying the new offerings.
This dinner of ours might need a second visit very soon as there are just too many of them!

Homely atmosphere!

The salad always offered graciously on the house is certainly welcome!

One of Shikinjyo’s specialties: half-cooked potato salad! Great with any drink!

Sauteed liver and vegetables is a recent addition! Very heathy!

The specialty that everyone asks for: deep-fried minced pork balls!
Served with a special salt mixture!

I never fail to taste one of their old Chinese rice wines!

This one is over 8 years old!

Dumplings of all kinds, fried, steamed or boiled are their true specialty!
Fried leeks and pork gyoza. Full of juices as you break them!

Deep-fried cheese and vegetables Imperial rolls!

Steamed seafood dumplings! Again so juicy inside!

Deep-fried white flesh fish in sweet and sour sauce!

Alright this is all a bit short!
Shall we consider this only as part 1? LOL
Fried pork and leek gyoza!
