[KAGURA in Memuro] Barbecue Using Meats and Vegetables Produced in Tokachi
Barbecue Kagura (焼肉火蔵) is a popular barbecue restraunt opened in 2008 in Memuro town located in the west side of Obihiro city, and is near Memuro Station. Miracle corp. (株式会社 未楽来) runs it. The Kagura is famous for serving Memuro Beef produced in the Memuro and vegetables produced in Tokachi, and got the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition and 2017 Special Edition. The building is a red brick warehouse that used to be used by a farm co-op, and the restraunt is large. All seats are table seats, so I guess that even family customers and a large number of customers enjoy meals.
By the way, Shin-arashiyama Sky Park Observation Tower (新嵐山スカイパーク展望台) is also in the Memuro, and is well-known as a good place to view Tokachi Plain (十勝平野).
Shin-arashiyama Sky Park Observation Tower
Shin-arashiyama Sky Park Observation Tower (新嵐山スカイパーク展望台) is a lookout point in Memuro town located in the western direction of Obihiro city. The observation tower is built around the mountaintop of Mt. Shin-arashiyama (新嵐山) of about 340 m elevation, and a typical scenery of Hokkaido can be seen. A park named Shin-arashiyama Sky Park is developed at the foot of the Mt. Shin-arashiyama, and a ski ground, a tennis court, a park golf course, Memuro Town Arashiyama Auto Campsite (芽室町嵐山オートキャンプ場), Kokuminshukusha Shin-arashiyama-so (国民宿舎 新嵐山荘) and Koropokru (コロポックル) are built, and the park has an atmosphere like a resort. A pavement road to the mountaintop is built, and visitors can go up the mountain by their cars. But the narrow road is one car width, so drive carefully! A public restroom and a parking lot are built near the observation tower. Admission free. The parking lot is free of charge. Read More
I visited here around 17:00, just dinner opening, on a weekday. As soon as I took a table seat, a waitress asked me what drink I ordered, so I ordered a non-alcoholic beer. Successively, I wanted to eat a lot, so I ordered a plate of assorted meats for three or four and a dish of radish salad with dried young sardine. The price was JPY 4150 in total. She told me later that the assorted meats had half‐size, so she recommended the half-size assorted meats and recommended meats.
About 10 minutes later, the assorted meats (rib and rump of Mirai Memuro beef, fatty pork, chicken and mutton) were served with name tags. The vegetables produced in the Tokachi were served, too, and a dish of steamed potato and a dish of cabbage were on the house this time. The assorted meats looked tasty, and the radish salad was large in quantity.
I put various meats and vegetables on a toasting net, and about a minute later, and meats begun to turn into brown color. I ate it immediately, and broth came out. It was tasty! I liked the texture of fresh chicken and cabbage in particular. Bites got more fun. I was satisfied with all vegetables and meats very much. Thanks for the tasty meal!
