Putting aside the fact that I have literally been coming to this restaurant since birth (yes, I used 'literally' correctly. I celebrated my baptismal here), Peacocks has been in business for so long that it seems like an icon of Chinese cuisine here on the island. Doubtful? Just check out their dishes below and allow me to convince you otherwise!

Traditional interior

At first glance, it may seem like just another typical Chinese restaurant; Round tables with plastic covering, traditional fancy China plates and teapots, and a lot (and I do mean A LOT!) of red colours. It must be for good luck or something. Not to mention that in my 35 years, I have not seen a single theme change. But honestly, why should they? As the saying goes – If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

The best shrimp fried rice

As for the food, 3 words: SHRIMP. FRIED. RICE! (Or is that 2 words?) I don't know what it is but honestly, I’ve had dreams about it. I took my friend there last week and he told me that now he has them too sometimes. I have yet to come to Peacock without ordering the shrimp fried rice. Of course, they have other dishes too such as the beef with broccoli in oyster sauce (also delicious), diced chicken with cashew nuts (my favourite), and the Gomoku yakisoba (crispy saucy noodles). It’s simply Hao Chi!

Diced chicken with cashew nuts

Price is a bit above average at about 1,000+ yen per person. Do your wallet a favour and go at lunch time. They offer lunch specials and there is free plain rice and egg drop soup with every order. For the location, basically its along route 58 around Ginowan. Just look for the red building and signboard with a peacock on it. And who knows, as often as I go, I just might see you there. Absolutely no freebies!
