This place is very near and dear to my heart. Kinka is a Chinese restaurant located in Usami near the ocean. It is a small shop with counter seats and an open area for larger groups. It’s a real local place.
Owned and maintained by my students parents they are especially welcoming. English lacking but still it is a solid place to eat in this small town. Usami is known for it’s surfing scene so you’re able to grab a bite here after riding the waves.
They have an extensive menu. Everything from ramen, cha-han, gyoza, cabbage, pig feet and a variety of small dishes and fresh ingredients made this place one of my favorite places to eat when I lived in Usami. The restaurant maintained well. It is clean and there is air conditioning. Yay!
Locals usually clamor here for a drink or two and the specialty food I was say is this Gyoza. They made delicious gyoza here. Whenever I had guests stay in Usami I always took them here. And considering how small the town is you would be surprised when you see a huge crowd of people partying in the back of the room.
And finally the owners are great and it is definitely a homely place. So if you’re ever in Usami in need of some Japanese Styled Chinese food check out Kinka. Experience the small town diner vibe.
If this Ocean Pufferfish is good, and Old Eggs are bad this gets a Wonton Ramen Plus 1/ Ocean Pufferfish!
