Chinese restaurant “Shintomicho Yuasa” is located in a quiet place close to the station, but away from the bustle of downtown. Chef Daisuke Yuasa studied at famous Chinese restaurants, such as Sendagi “Tengaiten”, Mita “Mitamachi Momonoki” and “Tsukushiro Ginza”, and opened “Shintomicho Yuasa” in February 2019.
There is no exact concept in the “Shintomicho Yuasa” cuisine. Based on the Szechuan cooking techniques that they have developed, they make dishes with carefully-selected seasonal ingredients and are not restricted to any genre. Seafood and vegetables are mainly used to create a sense of the season. For example, in the cold season, an appetizer with sour soup on cod shirako chawanmushi or a combination of Japanese smelt and baby spear squid is served. The popular menu is shark fin cuisine, which can be said to be the star of Chinese cuisine. They use 7 kinds of special shark fins that are made by a request from Kato Koshi, who is the representative of Tateyama city “Shinwa Kinshi Factory” in Chiba prefecture, that is particular about sun-drying. It will captivate repeat customers.
