[Closed Down: Ajifuku in Obihiro] A Large Portion of Chinese Chirashi

[Closed Down] Ajifuku

Ajifuku (味福) is a Chinese restaurant founded in 1980 in Obihiro city, and faces Seina Odori Street (西南大通). Sushi Masa (寿司正) runs the Chinese restaurant. The Ajifuku is well-known for serving Chinese Chirashi (中華ちらし), and seems to be associated in some way with Ajifuku (あじ福) called the originator of Chinese Chirashi (中華ちらし). * The defference between Ajifuku (味福) and Ajifuku (あじ福) is Japanese words. Except the Chinese Chirashi, Pork Rice Bowl (豚丼) and Gyoza (餃子) are also popular. Unfortunately, the Ajifuku was closed down in August, 2014. An article before closing is as follows.

OBIHIRO

Obihiro (帯広) that about 170,000 people live is the 6th largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and is one of regional hub cities of the Eastern Hokkaido area. It has flourished as the center of the Tokachi district. The Obihiro is also a stockyard for agricultural products in whole Tokachi district, and Potato, Beet, Wheat and Chinese Yam are famous as a local product. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 30 degrees in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to nearly -20 degrees in a winter. It has a large temperature gap, but it has less snow relatively in the Hokkaido. Therefore skating is popular in the winter.

The restaurant has a good atmosphere of Showa period, and they have counter seats and table seats. When I visited here at 19:00 o'clock, 6 customers sat at the table seats. The tabel seats were popular. I sat at a counter seat, and ordered the Chinese Chirashi. The price was JPY 630.

 Chinese Chirashi -Ajifuku in Obihiro-

The Chinese Chirashi is a rice bowl dish eaten by Obihiro people from old days. Fried pork, fried vegetables and scrambled egg are put on the rice. Because ingredients were scattered on the rice, so it seemed to be named. * The Chirashi means "Scatter" in Japanese. Originally, the Chinese Chirashi was one of staff meals in Kappo Shochiku (割烹松竹), and some restaurant in the Obihiro have served the Chinese Chirashi, and it is said that the Chinese Chirashi is the comfort food of the Obihiro.

After waiting for about 40 minutes, the Chinese Chirashi was served. Firstly, I was surprised at the large portion of the dish. Rice was steamed rice of 2 go (660 g). In case of a large portion of the rice, it increase 1.5 times more. It looked like Chukadon (rice bowl with chop-suey-like mixture on the rice), and I guess that its differences between the Chukadon and Chinese Chirashi have little thickness and little salty-sweet taste. Since the dish is really much quantity, please be careful.
