Denenkyo is a Chinese restaurant located in a residential district of Tokyo, Yoga.
The restaurant's meal concept is mom's cooking from Beijin.
Chinese food is already very well-known in Japan, but the restaurant is aiming to introduce real local home food of China.
In the menu list, we can find many familier menu and ingredients for Chinese and Japanese; gyoza(Chinese dumpling), oyaki (salty round shape cake), kakuni(diced pork stew), mapo-tofu...
What we had are surely slightly different from what we usually know as Chinese food. Cooking way is simple but I believe that selected ingredients, authentic spices and the professional chef from the hometown country make the difference.
Definetely I prefer these dishes to ones available in typical Chinese restaurants.
Mapo-tofu is the best match with rice!
