Chinese Cuisine

With such an impressive Chinatown, it would be a shame not to try Chinese cuisine in Yokohama!
There are many different delicious restaurants in this district, with many types of cuisine to try.
Here are some of the must-try dishes in Yokohama's Chinatown.


There are numerous restaurants in Yokohama's Chinatown specialized in dim sum. What is great about restaurants serving dim sum is that you get to try many types of tasty bite-sized food, such as meat-filled dumplings, shrimp wafers, sesame fried balls, etc.

The restaurants listed in the link below go from cheap to high-end so there's plenty to choose from.

Steamed Buns

Steamed buns in Yokohama are very popular and can be easily found at any street corner. They can be conveniently bought to go so you can eat them while walking around and discovering this lovely part of town.


Shumai can also be served for dim sum, however, they can also be bought to go from street vendors. The shrimp ones are particularly popular and delicious.


Sanma Ramen

Sanma ramen could also fall in the Chinese cuisine category, it is a type of Chinese ramen. This soup has a light taste and is made with soy sauce, salt and vegetables. It is served with mid-size, straight noodles

Ramen Museum

Now, you're in luck because there is not one, but TWO ramen museums in Yokohama!
The first one is more of an agglomeration of food stalls which specializes in ramen dishes from all over Japan. So you get to taste Japan's most famous regional specialties without having to travel through the country.
Cup Noodles Museum in Yokohama is an interactive museum where you get to know about the famous cup ramen's history, you also get to make your own chicken ramen and enjoy all kinds of noodles at the Noodles Bazaar. It's a fun activity for young and old alike.

Shabu Shabu

Shabu Shabu is also famous in Yokohama, probably because it abounds with awesome and high-quality shabu shabu restaurants. Shabu shabu is a fun activity because you get to make it yourself and enjoy it slowly with friends or family, but mostly because it's damn delicious!


Napolitan pasta is a hugely popular dish in Japan and is usually quite cheap. Napolitan pasta was apparently invented in Japan after the arrival of American troops. It was first made by Shigetada Irie, the general chef of the New Grand Hotel in Yokohama. He was inspired by the military troop's food rations, and made the now staple dish with spaghetti and ketchup. Although it is no longer made with ketchup, it is still widely eaten throughout Japan. Now, it is commonly eaten with tomato sauce and sausage.

Hayashi Rice

Last but not least is Hayashi rice, which is hashed beef served in a thick demi-glace sauce served over rice. This dish, like Neapolitan pasta, is a Japanese take on a Western dish.

I love travelling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
