April 17th, 2014
Miyoshino (みよしの) is a fast food chain restaurant run in the center of Sapporo city, has branch stores in Tomakomai city, Eniwa city, Asahikawa city and Chitose city. Long-established company "Ten Foods Service corp. (株式会社テンフードサービス)" in the Sapporo has opened a business since 1920's- 1930's as a cheap restaurant in Tanukikoji (狸小路). The Miyoshino is famous for Chinese Dumpling Curry and Rice (ぎょうざカレー), and Sapporo people have fell in love with an unexpected conbination of the curry and rice and the chinese dumplings. Because they serve their meals for reasonable prices, this restaurant is popular with growing children with a healthy appetite, so it is said that the Chinese Dumpling Curry and Rice is a local speciality dish of the Sapporo. The Miyoshino used to be a restaurant specializing in chinese dumplings, and in my opinion, I thougt that the Moyoshino was a curry restaurant, so it is unexpected.
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Article is here
Chinese Dumpling Curry and Rice
I visited Nichigeki Branch Store in the middle of Susukino (すすきの) around 11:00, just opening hour, on a weekday. The restraunt is adjacent to Akahige Drugstore with an outstanding signboard. No customers were at the restraunt. It is not large, and has an atomosphere such as a typical fast food restraunt. All seats are counter seats. Table seats are not provided, so I guess that family customers can hardly to enjoy meals in a busy time. I sat at a counter seat, and ordered the Chinese Dumpling Curry and Rice topped with cheese. The price was JPY 480. This is reasonable price.
