Finding great Chinese food in Kurashiki or Okayama has always been a great challenge which I am proud to undertake whenever I have a bit of time. I came upon Nyan Nyan a few years ago and decided to write about it since it’s a great place for lunch and the food stands out more then the drab grey building.
Nyan Nyan is located not too far from Aeon Mall is a busy Chinese restaurant and I recommend that you head there early if you don’t want to wait.
Look for this sign and if you come by car, there is a second parking next to the restaurant.
The lunch menu is quite a good deal and we opted for the 2100 yen menu.
This first small appetizer was brought to our table by mistake but I was happy to learn that most ingredients were grown of fished in Okayama. The renkon (lotus root) were from Tsurajima where I live. Locally sourced ingredients are always a big plus. The appetizer was given to us.
The appetizer that came with our menu: daikon, shrimps, chicken salad, pork, simple yet delicious.
Seafood dish. The scallops were delicious.
The food at Nyan Nyan is top quality and I really enjoyed the flavors. I am normally a big fan of cheap Chinese eateries where you would be afraid to bring a date, but Nyan Nyan is the perfect place for a classy lunch.
I have never tried their à la carte menu, but they have a very vast selection, be warn, it’s not a cheap place. If you tried anything on their menu, let me know how it was.
