[Baba Hormone in Asahikawa] Atmosphere and Broiled Salty Pig Innards Can Be Savored

March 30th, 2015

Baba Hormone

Baba Hormone (馬場ホルモン) is a popular broiled pig innard bar (ホルモン焼き店) at a building named Himekoji (姫小路) with some Japanese‐style bars, 7jo-dori, Asahikawa, and is near Asahikawa City Office. Mr. Ichiro Baba (馬場 一郎) established the bar in 1952. The Baba Hormone is well-known for serving broiled salty pig innards (塩ホルモン), a local speciality of the Asahikawa for the first time. In the Asahikawa, pig farming has been prosperous since a long time, and it is easy to get fresh pig innard. I think the reason that the bar is popular also is a reasonable price.

The appearance has an atmosphere such as the Showa period, and is very shibui. The interior decoration is similar to its atmosphere, too. A clay charcoal stove only is put on a table, and there is not too many thing. The Japanese‐style bar is filled with smoke, and plays a part in creating the atmosphere. In addtion, there are some tables, so I guess that even family customers may enjoy their meals.

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

Broiled Pig Innards

When I sat at a counter seat, I was only asked about drinks. A menu was not provided. A clay charcoal stove was put in my front, and pig innards and onions were served on a plate in a few minutes. The pig innards were seasoned with salt and secret spice seasoning. I grilled those on the clay charcoal stove, and ate these.

It was very simple, but this was very tasty. The pig innards were fresh, but seasoning was perfect. Finally I paid money, but I knew the dish and the drink charge for the first time. What! The prices were JPY 950 in total. I was surprised at this price. As for this quantity and drink, JPY 950 was reasonable. I was able to understand that the reason was the popular bar. Thanks for the tasty pig innards! * According to quantity of eating and drinking, the paid money changes.
