Lee’s Taiwan Kitchen (李さんの台湾名物屋台) is a fast food place that we found in a food court in Minami-Osawa in Hachioji, Tokyo. From the name, it appears it’s Taiwanese style food.
We ordered two kinds of karaage (fried chicken), the spicy karaage and the sweeter negi karaage (with onions). We also had ebi dango (shrimp dumplings). I liked both of the karaage, though the ebi dango was a bit plain tasting. However, I enjoyed it. I think my favourite was the spicy karaage.
This shop was on the 5th floor of Paole, in the Meatrea food court in front of Minami-Osawa station in Hachioji.
At Akibadai Culture and Athletics Centre in Fujisawa, there is a restaurant called SELP. This restaurant is pretty cheap, and it looks more like a cafeteria. Every day, there’s a special meal, although I didn’t have that this time. The restaurant is most likely frequented by people who use the gym, as well as workers at neighbouring businesses and factories. I’m neither. I’m a local resident. This restaurant is on the second floor of the building, located in the southern gymnasium, next to where they do martial arts and above the fitness centre.
The inside of the restaurant is actually quite interesting. Although it’s not a particularly attractive restaurant, it does have quite the ceiling.
So, how was the food? I ordered the karaage teishoku (唐揚げ定食) for only 500 yen. It consisted of karaage (Japanese style fried chicken), rice, miso soup, chicken and onion with a sesame sauce, salad, and pickles. I really liked the karaage. It’s very juicy. The sesame sauce with the chicken and onions was quite good, too. I liked the miso soup, but I’m not a fan of seaweed, so I only had the soup and onions. My wife ate the seaweed.
I’ll definitely go back there again. It’s cheap, and they provide a decent amount of food. I’d like to try some of their special meals of the day.
