Nanxiang Steamed Bun Restaurant, Roppongi Hills  南翔饅頭店 六本木ヒルズ

There is only one reason to come to this Chinese theme style restaurant in Roppongi Hills - that is for their pork soup dumplings. These are not dumplings inside a bowl of soup - these are dumplings where the soup is to be found inside! They are simply delicious and even better when you combine them with the shredded ginger that they are served with. Just watch out though as the juice inside is usually piping hot so don't burn your mouth! I wouldn't bother ordering anything else. On my last visit I ordered some Chinese vegetables for 1,250 yen and out came three sorry looking leaves and stalks with a bit of sauce whereas you usually get a whole pile in any other place worth its salt. Oh well, they're working us over, but I can overlook it as those dumplings are good!

南翔饅頭店 (六本木)

六本木ヒルズにあるこの中華料理店の目玉ともいえる料理が豚シュウマイのスープである。といってもスープの中にシュウマイが入っているわけではない。シュウマイの中にスープがたくさん押し詰められているのだ。とくに千切りにした生姜と一緒にいただくと味はさらに格別だ。ただ、中のスープは非常に熱いので食べるときには口を火傷しないように気をつけて欲しい。またこれ以外には特に注文しなくても十分に満足がゆくだろう。ちなみに私は1,250円で中華野菜を注文したが、茎が3本弱々しくお皿に盛り付けられており、他の中華レストランなら山森で出されるところだか・・・とにかく、このレストランの中マイスープは一度食べてみる価値が十分にある。
