Kouran 皇蘭 本店
Kouran is at the end of the street in Kobe Chinatown and there was a line up! People weaved through all the restaurants to line up so we're thinking it must be good? We didn't plan Kouran on our itinerary but we felt inclined to join the crowd.
Kouran is known for their beef buns, gyozas, siu mai and people wait in line to grab xiao long bao to go! You can certainly dine in and they also serve ramen. They did a great job at pan frying the xiao long bao so it's super crispy at the bottom. Later on we found out their beef buns are made with 100% certified Kobe beef! So if you want a taste of Kobe Beef for a reasonable price, this might be a great place to check out. If you want some good eats, try to wait until you hit this specialty shop at the end of Kobe Chinatown!
