REI-KA-SEN

If you ever get hit by a hunger pang while strolling through Shinjuku’s Takashimaya department store and can’t decide what to eat, Rei-ka-sen, a ‘chinese’ restaurant perched on the 13th floor may be an option.

The interior of the restaurant is clear and bright with a nice view towards the terrace. They are best known for their shark fin noodles ( I know…I know…I really don’t eat shark fin that much). Anyway, they have a choice of shark fin noodle soup, shark fin rice porridge or shark fin i fu mie at a very reasonable price of about 2000 yen.

Other options are the lunch menus which offer a wonderful array of chinese dishes for a reasonable  1260 to 3360 yen. My friend tried one of the lunch menus and this is what she had :

A fresh green salad

We also decided to try some other dishes like their tan-tan ramen (ramen with sesame broth) and prawn with mayonnaise.

We also tried the almond jelly and mango pudding dessert. Now this you can skip, it wasn’t that good.

Just a reminder, the food in this restaurant is not authentic chinese so don’t go expecting that. Still, it was a pretty good, reasonably priced meal.
