[Dorian in Nemuro] Tasty Escalope Depend on Tasty Demi-glace Sauce
Meal and Cafe Dorian (食事と喫茶 どりあん) is Dorian (どりあん) is a popular coffee shop founded in 1969 in Nemuro city, and is near Nemuro Park (根室公園) and Aeon Nemuro Branch. The coffee shop is well-known for serving Escalope (エスカロップ) called the comfort food of the Nemuro. The escalope is a dish that demi-glace sauce is poured over deep-fried sliced pork cutlets on butter rice. Mr. Kinya Komura (古村欣也) trained his cooking skills in Tokyo and Kanagawa left for a chef of Restaurant Mont Blanc (レストラン「モンブラン」) in the Nemuro, and devised the dish localized from Escaloppini, an Italian food, for fishermen to be able to eat the meal with nutritious quickly. Mr. Katsutoshi Umeda (梅田勝利) was independent from the Restaurant Mont Blanc, and opened New Mont Blanc (ニューモンブラン). Mr. Bungo Kotaki (小滝文吾), the founder of the Dorian, trained his cooking skills at the New Mont Blanc was independent. The Dorian has served the Escalope and Oriental Rice (オリエンタルライス) inherited the original taste. A lot of tourists as well as local people come.
The deep green appearance of the building stands out, and is like an atomosphere such as a western-style cafe. The interior decoration also has an atomosphere of a good old coffee shop. The coffee shop with counter seats and table seats is not so large, but a lot of the table seats are provided, so I guess that family customers also enjoy meals. Stately chairs and tables are comfortable, and a fireplace is also provided. By the way, Express Aurora-go (オーロラ号), an express bus, runs between Sapporo and the Nemuro, and Limited Express Nemuro-go (特急ねむろ号), an express bus, runs between the Kushiro and the Nemuro. Unfortunately, the express bus does not run between New Chitose Airport and the Nemuro. Besides, Rent-a-car can be rented around Nemuro Station.
Nemuro (根室) that about 26,000 people live in is the 26th largest fishery city in Hokkaido, and one of regional hub cities of the East Hokkaido area, and is the easternmost port town in Japan. The Nemuro has 4 ports, Nemuro Port (根室港), Hanasaki Port (花咲港), Ochiishi Fishing Port (落石漁港) and Habomai Fishing Port (歯舞漁港), and it is famous for catching Hanasaki Crab (花咲ガニ) and Saury, and a catch of the saury is the largest in the Japan. As for a climate, the Nemuro faces the Sea of Okhotsk and the Pcific Ocean, so a wind blows hard. Average annual temperature is 6 degrees, and it is chilly in a summer, and it does not snow hard in a winter. Various things such as Cape Nosappu (納沙布岬) is the easternmost in the Japan, so visitors know the joy of the easternmost things in the Japan. It is a good point to see the earliest sunrise in the Japan, too. In addition, It is said that the Nemuro is famous for coming the last Cherry Blossom Front, and is one of latest cherry blossoming places in the Japan. Read More
I visited here around 14:00 on a weekday. Only some customers sat at counter seats, and the coffee shop was not crowded. I sat at a table seat, and read a menu. The Oriental Rice was also tasty, but I wanted to eat the Escalope, so ordered it. The price was JPY 870.
Afer waiting for about 10 minutes, the Escalope was served. The pork cutlet was put on the butter rice, and vegetables such as Broccoli and Tomato were put on a dish. Apparently, it was like a pork cutlet rice bowl. But I wondered if it looked some western dish since the dish was the bowl and the demiglace sauce was poured over the pork cutlet after all.
I ate a bite of the Escalope. The taste was not oily than looks, and it was unexpectedly light taste. Sliced bamboo shoots in the butter rice had very nice texture. The demiglace sauce seems to be stewed for 1 week, and has been added to the sauce since inauguration, so I wondered if it might become rich taste. It was Tasty! By the way, it seems that most of restaurants serve about the same Escalope, But demiglace sauces of each restaurants are different.
