Cantonese Cuisine Kaiho｜Chinese restaurant with a huge following among movie actors…in Uzumasa, Kyoto
Even though actors are above the clouds, they are still human beings and have to eat somewhere, even during a long day-long shoot. The restaurant introduced here is “Cantonese Cuisine Kaiho,” which has gained tremendous support from actors and crew members. This restaurant was also established in 1971, so it can be said to be a long-established Chinese restaurant that has been in business for nearly 50 years now.
The average price of one dish on the menu at Kaiho is 5 to 600 yen, which is so inexpensive that it brings tears to the eyes of diners nowadays. The portions are small, but at these prices, even ADs with little money can feel at ease. It seems that this is one of the reasons why Kaikan has been a longtime favorite of people in the movie industry.
One of the popular menu items at Kaiho is this wonton noodle dish for 600 yen….
Despite its appearance, it is a traditional Chinese noodle dish. The chicken broth is thin and elegant, and the noodles are straight and thin. For those who were born in the Showa period (1926-1989), the taste is nostalgic.
The wontons are also small and bite-sized. The wontons are small and bite-sized. It is a dish that makes you feel a little bit happy, as if you have splurged a little bit on something a little bit more modest.
If I were to say a drawback, I would say that men may find it a bit lacking. The refined seasoning makes it easy to feel a bit lonely.
So, we ordered additional gyoza for 2 people, 300 yen x 2….
As expected, each one here is also small in size. An adult male can easily eat two servings of gyoza after ramen.
The crispy, browned skin is filled with pork, Chinese cabbage, and green onions. There is no garlic or chives, which are usually included in regular gyoza. This may be the reason why the gyoza lacks impact compared to the gyoza at regular restaurants. I guess it is a matter of taste.
If you are lucky, you may be able to meet the actor of your dreams! To go to Cantonese Cuisine Kaiho, a 1-minute walk from Keifuku Dentetsu Satsueijo-mae Station.
