Homestyle Chinese Cuisine ‘jeeten’ | 吉田風中国家庭料理店

Located in a tranquil posh residential area at the outskirts of Shibuya, Yoyogi-Uehara, you will find this humble atmosphered Homestyle Chinese Cuisine ‘jeeten’, owned and operated by a the chef Yoshida himself. With a counter bar seating and just few tables, at first glance may appear to be a cafe style restaurant but the Chinese cuisine is unbelievably exquisite. Secretly admired by the locals, Yoshida special style of Chinese cooking is not the traditional oily Chinese but light, healthy, with lot of vegetables.

The menu offers both a 3 different type of course menu but also a la carte is offered for individual dishes. We ordered the A menu, our eyes always bigger than our stomach but to also to enjoy the seasonal recommendations by the Chef.

閑静な高級住宅地が残る「代々木上原」。昨晩は「吉田風中国家庭料理店」のjeetenで友人夫妻と夕食会。野菜中心の文字通り中華家庭料理。野菜と取り入れたメニューが多く、なぜか胃にもたれないあっさりとした料理法はシェフの秘伝の技。うま味調味料と中華出しは取らずに水と「腕、技」で旨味を出していらしい。カフェスタイルのインテリアですが落ち着いた雰囲気、家庭料理に刺激をいただいた一晩でした。お店で料理本を購入し、、日々のお料理に活用していこうかと思います。

Here is what the course looked like….

昨晩、注文したのではシェフのおすすめのAコースメニュー。

Appetizer, Jelly fish with cucumbers.

くらげの冷菜 

Bean Sprout Roll – Pencil layered rows of bean sprouts wrapped with (I believe) fried tofu skin with a slightly sweet hoisin sauce.

もやしの揚げ物は食感がとても不思議。もやしを綺麗に並べ、薄いお揚げで包んだ一品。

Shrimp Rice Rolls – Steamed Rice Paper enwraps a tasty shrimp filling.

海老腸粉はもっちりとした食感。中身は海老の練り物でソースとよく絡み、美味です。

三種の盛り合わせと鴨燻製。ビールやお酒が進む一品です。

Dailily, Yellow Chives and Scallops.

金針菜と黄ニラの炒め物。貝柱の旨味が野菜を包み込む一品です。

Shrimp with seasonal vegetables with Sweet Sake Sauce

海老と季節野菜の甘酒炒め。野菜の綺麗な彩りと甘酒のほのかな甘さが野菜とうまくマッチングしています。甘いどうもろこしやパプリカ、ゆりねなど食感がまちまちの野菜がうれしい。

White Asparagus with tender beef

白アスパラスと柔らかい牛肉の胡椒炒め

Finale offers either sizzling rice or szechuan noodles or chimaki (sticky rice wrapped in bamboo leaves).

最後の締めはおこげか担々麺かちまきを選べます。どの品も選びたいので数人で行ったときは別々に頼むことをおすすめします。

I chose one of my favorite yakuzen dessert, the turtle pudding. The Turtle pudding (I believe) is of Hong Kong origin and the turtle juice, full of collagen to beautify your skin.

わたしの大好きな「香港・薬膳デザート」の一つ。コラーゲンたっぷりの薬膳亀ゼリーは、、むふふ、、美味ですよ。
