Tabemono 5: Japanised Chinese food @ Shinjuku

There are different types of eating places in Japan. Many of the cheaper places that sell noodles and rice are run by Chinese. Tonight was one such shop. Very little English was spoken here and we communicated in Mandarin instead. After pressing a few buttons on the machine, dinner was served.

This was basically fried pork on rice with a lot of shallots on the top. That was my vegetable portion for the day.

The gyoza were probably frozen gyoza that were fried. The skin was hard in different places and they were oily.

It was only after the meal that I felt the effects of too much MSG in the food. It took three cups of tea to rid myself of the effects of the MSG.
