The restaurant open @11:30 but about 30 people waited before open, even I went there on Monday though. I tried shallow fried dumpling & boiled ones. Both were good, especially with beer!! They have local brewed beer & Sapporo beer. Should try!!! 11:30オープン前から、すでに30名くらいが、月曜日なのに並んでました。さすがに有名店ですね。 焼きと水餃子をビールとで勿論言うことなし。地ビールも置いてます。
