[Grand Glacier in Abashiri] Abashiri Chanpon with Rich Umami

Abashiri Central Hotel

Abashiri Central Hotel is a hotel founded in 1972 in Abashiri city, and is located between Abashiri Station and Roadside Station Ryuhyo Kaido Abashiri (道の駅 流氷街道網走). Grand Glacier (グラン グラシェ), a restaurant, has opened a business at the hotel, and serve Abashiri Chanpon (網走ちゃんぽん) and Abashiri Zanki Rice Bowl (網走ザンギ丼), local specialities in the Abashiri, and Lunch Buffet is also popular. The restaurant is large, and all seats are table seats, so I guess that even family customers also enjoy meals.

    ABASHIRI

    Abashiri (網走) that about 40,000 people live is the 20th largest tourist city in Hokkaido, and is one of regional hub cities of the Northeastern Hokkaido area. It is also a fisheries city facing the Sea of Okhotsk, and Crab, Idiot Fish, Whale and Salmon are famous as a local specialty. As for a climate, it is chilly that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to nearly -5 degrees in a winter, and it does not snow hard, too. It may be said that the Abashiri is relativelly warm climate in the Hokkaido. The Abashiri is well-known for drift ice reaching to the coast, and is famous as a winter tourist spot, too, and is roughly divided into 2 areas, a old city area (a neighborhood of Abashiri River mouth) and a new suburbs area. The new suburbs area is more developed than the old city area, and has more restaurants than the old city area. Read More

    Abashiri Chanpon

    In the Abashiri facing the Sea of Okhotsk, the Abashiri Chanpon is selected as a local specialty, and can be eaten at some restaurants, and the Grand Glacier is one of those. So I visited here to eat the Abashiri Chanpon. A waitress shown my table seat, and I sat at that, and ordered the Abashiri Chanpon that I craved. The price was JPY 831.

    Ingredients Are Vegetables and Sea Foods
    Abashiri Chanpon -Grand Glacier-

    Abashiri people cooperated with Obama Chanpon (小浜ちゃんぽん) in Nagasaki, the home of the Chanpon, and it was born. Features of the Obama Chanpon are light soup, a lot of vegetables and seafood, and straight noodles. The Abashiri Chanpon is cooked from ingredients produced in Abashiri instead of the Obama Chanpon. They have some rules and regulations to name a dish as the Abashiri Chanpon. Their soup bases on the soup broth of the Obama Chanpon, and ingredients use seafood caught in the Sea of Okhotsk and food produced in the Abashiri, and the noodles use noodles made by Takenaka Making-Noodles Factory only for the Abashiri Chanpon. Restaurants compete with each other, and different Abashiri Chanpon are born. You might as well eat those at different restaurants.

    About 10 minutes later, the Abashiri Chanpon was served. The soup has Umami. I took a sip of the soup. It was light taste and full of the umami, and it was tasty! It had a lot of ingredients, and was filling. One of highlights is a ramen bowl. In fact, Prisoners of Abashiri Prison make the ramen bowl, and the ramen bowl seems to be hand-made one by one. They are particular about Abashiri production in various ways. Thanks for the tasty meal!
