Hong Hu Jiao Zi Fang/Futako Tamagawa


We stopped into Hong Hu Jiao Zi Fang Chinese Restaurant after shopping a bit at Garden Island in Futako Tamagawa. This chain from Kiwa Group has a number of locations throughout Japan, several in Tokyo. The walls of the Futako Tamagawa have Chinese motifs on them. The Peking black vinegar sauce pork was one of the most incredible dishes of this type that we have ever had. The pork was cooked until you could cut it with a fork, moist with no gristle. The vegetable ramen was quite tasty, frequently some places throw a bunch of veggies into a simple chicken stock and call it vegetable ramen, however this tasted a level up from that and the noodles were ample, this is a dish for two people to share. We also ordered the sanratan (hot + sour soup) and that was made with white vinegar when most places make it with dark vinegar I think. Not too crowded at 3 PM on a Friday afternoon. They have an excellent menu with pictures and both English and Japanese descriptions and everything is very reasonably priced. The service was quick and friendly. Definitely a good way to start or end a day of shopping near Futako Tamagawa station.
