[Rancho Elpaso in Obihiro] Frankfurter of Mud Pig and Non-Sticky Fried Rice

September 26th, 2014

Rancho Elpaso

Rancho Elpaso (ランチョ・エルパソ) is a popular restaurant founded in 1976 in Obihiro city, and is near Midorigaoka Park. Manos copr. (株式会社 マノス * Elpaso corp.) runs it, and Mr. Hideaki Hirabayashi (平林 英明) is a company president. The Rancho Elpaso is well-known for serving mud pig that grows up without worries in a large ranch, Tokachi district. The pig grows up in Elpaso Ranch, and they process pork into sausages and other products in the ranch and their factory. They use own-process completion, and serve reliable and safe food. At the restaurant, they also serve in-house production of Obihiro Beer. There is a shop as well as the restaurant at the building, too, and mud pig productions are sold. A slogan of the restaurant is "The climate creates food (風土がfoodを造る)". That is a pun in Japanese. They keep taking good care of the climate, so I think that the Rancho Elpaso is a popular restaurant with history.

The appearance and the interior decoration are Mexican style. The building is large, and a autographed card of Mrs. Hiroshi Arakawa (荒川弘) drew Silver Spoon (銀の匙), a famous comic, is displayed. Setting of the comic is the Tokachi district, and the building also has an atmosphere of the Tokachi district. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals. A concert is sometimes held at a hall, too.

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. Mr. Hiroyasu Shimizu, an olympic gold medalist, come from the Obihiro, and there is much competition population of the skating. Article is here

About 10 minutes later, the Fried Rice Special was served with a cup of soup and a dish of salad. Fried rice without a sticky texture and a mud pig frankfurt sausage were on a dish. I ate the rice, and seasoning was just right. It was tasty! I also enjoyed nice snap with frankfurter texture. I put the rice into my mouth, and finished eating. Thanks for the tasty meal!
