There is a store called Mambo Hotel in Saiin, Kyoto, which has a store name that is not similar to a Chinese restaurant. It's fashionable from the entrance, and the logo mark reminiscent of Chinese food Hamamura is drawn on the blackboard... While singing Chinese food, I feel that it can not be cleaned up by itself...
Mambo Hotel | Slow supper while drinking sake... A little stylish Chinese-based restaurant bar
The interior of the store is based on white, and there are seven counter seats on the front side of the elongated space in the back and three table seats in the back. All the cooking is done by one person, so especially when it's crowded, "It takes some time to serve the food."
A night menu that changes daily depending on the purchase... After all, a free shop that can not fit in ordinary Chinese food
Apparently, the night menu at Mambo Hotel seems to change depending on the stocking of the day. There are about 4 hand-written items on A40 paper, from snacks to single dishes to desserts. Some of these items are standard, and some menu items are updated daily.
Among these menus, the one that caught my eye the most was "Horohoro spare ribs and savory vegetable meat-bone tea (Bakute, price 1500 yen excluding tax)". Bakute is a spicy medicinal Zen soup that is mainly eaten in Singapore and Malaysia. There are still few shops offering bacte in Japan, and I never dreamed that it would be on the menu at a Chinese restaurant.
That's why the main item is almost immediately decided. After that, I don't need anything if there is white rice next to Bakute, but unfortunately there is no white rice in the menu, so I decided to order Gomaki Yaki Meshi (price tax 1 yen) instead.
By the way, Mambo Hotel,One drink systemTherefore, one drink order is required for each person. They offer a wide variety of sake such as beer, wine, whiskey, Shaoxing sake, and shochu. Is it like a restaurant bar based on Chinese food?Western restaurant InotschiLike, it seems to be suitable for having a late night meal while drinking alcohol.
Meat-and-bone tea (bacte) with a bit of spicy spare ribs and savory vegetables: A lot of vegetables, spicy but not spicy, the owner's original medicinal soup
Then, I will start with the meat-and-bone tea (Bacte), but it came out with a more gorgeous feeling than I imagined...
As you can see, it contains a large amount of ingredients. Often, when you ask for Bakute in Singapore, the ingredients are only one spare rib, but the Bakute with a lot of ingredients will make you feel better just by looking.
Anyway, the owner seems to have never eaten Bakutei until now. It seems that he knew the existence of Bacte in books etc., but he knew nothing more than that, and he also imagined that Bacte was made...
I was asked, "Is this the right taste?", but it tastes like medicinal soup. In other words, the style changes depending on the shop, and there is no correct answer to the taste. However, good taste is justice.
This bacte made with the aim of "not spicy"...I think that goal has been achieved brilliantly. 3 pieces of spare ribs are so soft that they will fall apart when grasped with chopsticks. Chinese cabbage, peat, celery, mizuna, carrot, eggplant, potato, leek, wolfberry and a wide variety of ingredients have a strong chewy texture and each has a strong presence.
Hopefully, I'd like to replace the soup... A local Bakteya store has a large stock of soup, and when the soup runs out, there is a place to add more for free. I couldn't hope for that in Japan, but the soup was so complete that it made me think so.
Really, with this and white rice, I don't need anything else. My husband, when you do Bakutei next time, why don't you give me white rice?
Gomaki Yakimeshi: The masterpiece of the shop owner, who was agitated by high heat for about 5 minutes.
And another item, Gomaki Yakimeshi, which I ordered for rice...
Among this fried rice and fried rice that I have eaten so far, the rice flapping condition is the top level. That's right, ordinary fried rice is quickly served with high heat for 2-3 minutes, but the owner here just fuels the rice...
In terms of experience, I wonder if it was fueled by high heat for about 5 minutes. It's fueled about twice as much as regular fried rice, so the oil coated with rice also flies away with heat, making it easier to eat than you might imagine.
In addition to eggs, the ingredients are char siu, lettuce, green onions, shrimp, and red beet. The seasoning has a slightly soy sauce flavor, but the grain of rice that is loosened on your tongue is so moving that you won't even notice it.
Add the above 2 items and oolong tea, and the price you care about is 3000 yen including tax. It's a little expensive, but I think it's worth the price.
I'm sure lunch will be... Access to Mambo Hanten is a 5-minute walk from Saiin Station, the nearest station on the Hankyu Kyoto Line (Keifu Electric Railway)
Such a mambo restaurant is open only on weekdays but also at lunchtime. If this is the case, I am sure that he will serve delicious food even in the daytime. If you come to Saiin during the daytime, I would definitely recommend trying lunch.
