Soy Sauce Ramen That Owner Particular About -New Home Run in Asahikawa-
July 7th, 2016
New Home Run (ニューホームラン) is a ramen resuraun in Toyooka, Asahikawa city and has a history of about 40 years. The second owner that is 77 years old runs the ramen restraunt. The ramen restraunt has a good old atmosphere, and I would often visit here if I was a student. In fact, some Asahikawa Ryukoku Senior High School (旭川龍谷高校) students come.
A former owner used ready-made soup before the owner succeeded this ramen restraunt, but she has been particular about the homemade soup after she succeeded this ramen restraunt. There is no customer when I visited here around 14:30. I was lucky, and she always cared about me, and I had a conversation with her after I ordered soy sauce ramen (しょうゆラーメン). The price was JPY 550 and was very reasonable price. It is known as a popular ramen restraunt, and this and that is all coming 3 generations in a family. About 30 years has passed since she succeeded this ramen restraunt and this ramen will call a ramen brand.
Higeta soy sauce seems to hold the key to tasty soy sauce ramen, too. She said it was hard to work with her age, but it should be ok that she is an old woman full of drive. She cooked ramen quickly while having such a talk. I was interested in hot water mixed with something like soup for boiling the noodles. Perhaps this is hidden flavor of seasoning.
As for the soy sauce ramen, the soup had a thick taste and a good old taste, and it was just right for Asahikawa Ramen. In the north of Asahikawa, burnt lard oil seems to be the secret of ramen to making it so delicious. The soup might be like the soup of Hachiya (蜂屋) by the burnt lard oil.
While I ate the ramen, the owner asked me repeatedly whether I ate rice. I told her that my stomach was too full, but in fact, it was recommended to sop the rice in the soup and eat. Though I had her recommendation, I did something really awful to her. I told her that I went for a long drive when I went back, and she gave me a energy drink to shake off my sleepiness. She is very nice. This is one of her charms and would be a popular secret. When I visit here next, I certainly order the rice!
