[Ichikura Head Office in Asahikawa] Dried Chum Salmon Ramen Filled with Taste of Hokkaido

May 25th, 2015

Ichikura

Ganso Asahikawa Ramen Ichikura (元祖旭川らーめん 一蔵) is a popular ramen restraunt run by Kuramoto corp. (株式会社 蔵元) based in Asahikawa city. Mr. Hideyuki Maeda (前田 秀幸), a chairman, established it in 1990. They were given the Bib Gourmand by MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition. The Ichikura is famous for serving ramen made stock from dried chum salmon produced in Hokkaido, and I guess that it is very rare. The head office along 3 Jo-dori street is relatively near Asahikawa Station, and branch restraunts open a business in Fukagawa and Sapporo.

The head office in an entertainment district is large, and the interior decoration is new. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers and a large number of customers enjoy meals. Their busy time is not lunchtime but nighttime. Here is called "Sanrokugai (サンロク街) * 36 street", the largest entertainment district in the Asahikawa, so drunk people come to eat post-drink ramen.

ASAHIKAWA

Asahikawa (旭川) that about 340,000 people live is the 2nd largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and has flourished as the center of the North Hokkaido area. Woodworks have been prosperous since the old days, and furniture is famous. Because water is clear, a liquor such as sake of Otokoyama (男山) and Godo Shusei (合同酒精) are famous, too. Popular tourist attractions such as Asahiyama Zoo (旭山動物園) and Biei (美瑛) are around the Asahikawa, so a lot of tourists use tourist bases in the North Hokkaido. As for a climate, the Asahikawa is located in Kamikawa Basin, the largest basin in the Hokkaido, so it is hot that temperature rises to 30 degrees C in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to -25 degrees C in a winter, and it snow very hard, too. So a winter festival using the snow is famous. Article is here

Dried Chum Salmon Ramen with Soy Sauce Flavor

I visited here around 12:30 on a weekday. A lot of school trip students came at that time. The Ichikura was popular as I expected. I sat a window seat, and ordered the Dried Chum Salmon Ramen with Soy Sauce Flavor (鮭節醤油ラーメン). The price was JPY 900. By the way, I hear that the Ichikura Head Office serves halal food for Muslim. I think that ramen for the Muslim is unusual. In addition, Ichikura Ramen (一蔵ラーメン) covered with green onions is also popular.

Abot 10 minutes later, the Dried Chum Salmon Ramen with Soy Sauce Flavor was served. Roasted Pork Fillets, bamboo shoots, a boiled egg, green onions were on noodles. The appearance looked ordinary ramen, but I had a sip of ramen soup, and it clearly tasted the salmon. I felt that the light soup was like buckwheat noodles sopu. It was tasty!
