<Check the video> How about Chinese food in Kyoto? 4 Lunch Selection at Exquisite Chinese Restaurants [2023]

Delicious fried rice, gyoza, Tenshin rice, sometimes you can change your mood and try some cold noodles, or go for something a little more luxurious like shark fin. Don't you think Chinese food has that charm that once you want to eat it, you can't stay still? There are many delicious Chinese restaurants in Kyoto. This time we will introduce four recommended lunch restaurants.

1.Is Tenshinhan a drink? Popular Chinese food in Kyoto [Marushin Hanten]/Higashiyama

The lights of Machi Chuka are always a relief. [Marushin Hanten] is a popular restaurant with long lines of people waiting until late at night. What you want to eat here is definitely the most popular Tenshinhan. As soon as you step into the store, you will be surrounded by a delicious aroma. Tenshinhan is said to be a drink because of its exquisite taste, with its fluffy eggs and melty bean paste. Unlike the sweet and sour sweet bean paste from Kanto, this shop has the Kansai style. Be sure to taste (and drink) the chicken and pork bone soup filling.

3.Attractive Tenshin rice with thick and sweet sauce [Misonobashi Sakai] / Kitaoji

[Misonohashi Sakai] has a reputation for cold noodles that are addictive once you try them. This time, we also have Tenshinhan, a popular menu next to cold noodles. The filling of Tenshinhan uses the same sauce as cold noodles, but it is popular because it offers a different flavor. The thick and rich sauce is made using a blend of soy sauce and seasonings, and is carefully prepared over several days by mixing only the sauce. When eaten together, the refreshing cold noodles and the rich, slightly sweet bean paste (Tenjin rice) bring out the flavors of each other even more.

4.Boiled dumplings full of juicy meat [Rakusenro]/Shijo

[Rakusenro] has been loved in Kyoto for over 20 years. Take-out lunch boxes are also very popular, but what you're looking for is a lunch set of juicy boiled gyoza dumplings. Gyoza is a familiar dish in Japan, but boiled gyoza are the most popular in Harbin. The set includes 3 standard side dishes such as dried tofu and vermicelli. Boiled dumplings have a smooth and smooth skin, and the inside is juicy with plenty of meat juice. Enjoy the umami-filled boiled gyoza at the shop, so you can eat as many as you like without the sauce.
