While I was in Japan, I found this casual Chinese restaurant in a shopping mall. I was hungry and it looked like new, I just walked in. The name was Fukutai Chubou (福泰厨房), and a company opens a lot of family branches with various name per different purpose.

I ordered a lunch set that came with Ramen (noodles), small fried rice, Zhacai, and almond pudding.

My parents told me that there was a good Kaiten Sushi restaurant providing fresh fish from Tsukiji in neighbor and that they went there almost every week. :O

At Kaiten sushi restaurant, you serve tea yourself, pouring from the tap in front of you at the table, and sushi plates are on the conveyor bent, so you can either take some from it or order a new one.

Each plate indicates the cost; this restaurant had three levels, 260-yen plate, 320-yen plate, and 400-yen plate. In addition, there are some special plates that are more expensive ones.

Hahaha. I ate too much…

These are plates that we all ate, and see what they were doing with a machine?
Each plate is attached to a chip at the backside the plate, and this machine automatically calculates how much we have to pay by holding it over plates. A Japanese technology?!

While I was in Japan, my parents took me to a restaurant where they really loved their food, especially, Gyoza (dumping). The restaurant name is Benitora Gyoza Bo (紅虎餃子房) located in Kashiwa city, Chiba. There are many locations in Tokyo and the suburbs as well.

We ordered their famous Tetsunabe (鉄鍋; iron pot) Bo (棒; bar) Gyoza and recommended fried rice with shrimp, seafood, and lettuce.
