town横浜駅蒲田鵜ノ木中国food栗蒸し羊羹餃子焼きそば

横浜~蒲田~鵜ノ木へ

一生懸命に品出ししている女性スタッフの方へ。尋ねてみました。
これ美味しいですか?松葉屋さんのですね。甘さ抑えて良いですよ。お一人で一本召し上がれる方も。
ご旅行へ行って皆さんお知りになるみたいです。よく出ます。ほう、ほう。
入荷は火木土とのこと。今日は土曜日。先々週、錦糸町の白樺さん、先週、新橋の文銭堂さんをいただいたばかり。
この季節はやはり栗が気になります。レジに並ぼう。ここは全国からの銘菓がそろっており、女性でにぎわっておりました。後ろの方も2本カゴに。間違いない。

京浜東北線へ蒲田へ移動します。餃子が気になり、歓迎さんへ。以前、ニイハオさんが美味しくて初の歓迎さんへ。
11時35分で満席。5分待って円卓へ。気分があがります。餃子と玉子炒飯。1分で出てくる。

そうか羽がついているからこんなに早いのか。思わずかぶりつく。肉汁溢れる。もう少し中身感が欲しい。皮はたっぷり耳たぶくらいあるので餡とバランスが欲しかった。1つ食べているうちに炒飯。もしかして作り置きかな。
できたらその都度、作ってほしい。炒飯はあのふわっとお皿から盛り上がっているのが好きなのです。

でもお客さんどんどん来るし。待たせたくないとすれば作っておくしかないか。人気店の作法。選ぶ側として悩みます。麺が食べたくて鵜ノ木の早川さんへ。焼きそばは売り切れでした。餡掛け焼きそばのお弁当を駅のベンチで。

塩味効いて、カラダに沁みます。ごちそうさまでした。さて多摩川へ戻ろうか。ありがとうございました。

“From Yokohama to Kamata, then to Unoki. I headed to Yokohama West Exit in search of a book called ‘Suikoden.’ I peeked at the traditional Japanese sweets corner at Takashimaya.

There, I found an appealing chestnut-steamed yokan wrapped in bamboo skin.

I asked one of the hardworking female staff diligently arranging the products. ‘Is this delicious? This is from Matsubaya, right? It’s nicely balanced in sweetness. Suitable even for someone dining alone.’ People seem to discover these while traveling. They are quite popular. Oh, I see. They restock on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. Today is Saturday. Two weeks ago, I got some from Shirakaba in Kinshicho, and last week, from Bunsendo in Shinbashi. During this season, chestnuts are always intriguing. I’ll head to the cashier. The store is bustling with women, showcasing famous sweets from all over Japan. Even the people at the back have two baskets. Definitely a good choice.

I’ll move to Kamata via the Keihin-Tohoku Line. I’m curious about dumplings, so I go to Kangei. Ni Hao was delicious before, and now it’s my first visit to Kangei. At 11:35, it’s fully occupied. I wait for 5 minutes and get a table at a round one. It uplifts my mood. Dumplings and egg fried rice. They arrive within a minute.

Ah, it’s because they have wings that they’re served so quickly. I can’t help but take a big bite. Juicy with meat filling. I wished for a bit more filling. The dumpling skin is as thick as an earlobe, so I wanted a better balance with the filling. While I’m having one, the fried rice arrives. Perhaps it’s pre-made. If possible, I’d prefer it made fresh each time. I love the fluffy way the fried rice is served on the plate.

But the customers keep coming in. If they want to avoid keeping customers waiting, they have to pre-make it. The etiquette of a popular place. As a customer, it’s a dilemma. Craving noodles, I head to Hayakawa in Unoki. The yakisoba was sold out. I have the boxed set of ankake yakisoba on the station bench.

It has a strong salty taste, seeping into my body. Thank you for the meal. Now, should I return to Tama River? Thank you very much.”
