Today we had a little snow in Nasu. Trees are decolated in white with snow, which is really beautiful. My dogs are having fun in the garden as opposed to their usual lazy attitude in warm house rooms.
Maybe because it's really cold, we decided to have hot food ! It's chinese at Rin
, as always.
We can't miss Mapo Tofu dish when we need hot one. Rin's hot dish is really fantastic and this mapo tofu is much better than what I had in China. Of course, for local Chinese prople, their best one is the Mapo Tofu at their place. But I really love this Mapo Tofu, although I tried same dish many times in Tokyo or Yokohama, or in other countries, I would choose this one for my best.
My wife ordered Tan Tan men, or hot chinese noodle as photos. To be honest, this one is hotter than Mapo Tofu, more correctly speaking, this Tan Tan men makes our tongue shiver and taste sense get fainted.
Both Mapo tofu and Tan Tan men are really hot and we often think no more this hot ones, but after one week or sometimes, we again need that hot food to come back to Rin.
As today's appetizer, we had Gyoza or dumpling. Again this is amazingly good. It's not the standard type of Japanese gyoza, but I have to admit that this is one of the best gyozas I've had in my life.
For lunch today, we had the best choice.
