Grilled Chicken Rice Bowl Is Topped with Bibai Grilled Chicken -Tatsumi in Bibai-
April 30th, 2014
Tatsumi (たつみ) is a popular Yakitori restaurant in Bibai city located between Sapporo city and Asahikawa city and was founded in 1968. The restaurant is known for serving Bibai Yakitori (美唄焼き鳥 * grilled chicken on skewer) in Hokkaido. The Bibai Yakitori is grilled chicken giblets on skewer (モツ串). It is the idea (もったいない * Mottainai) that they use one chicken untill last. Because Bibai people who came to Hokkaido in the Meiji period were provided with a pair of chickens by Japanese nation, they bred those to survive themselves. As for the chicken, I can imagine a valuable thing as a few property.
Bibai Yakitori is found on Amazon.
Bibai grilled chicken on skewer (美唄焼き鳥), Chicken rice bowl (鶏飯), Buckwheat noodles topped with the roasted chicken giblets (もつそば) and Grilled chicken rice bowl (やきとり丼) are served at lunchtime. The restraunt is not so large and there are some tables. Many visitors seem to visit the restraunt and the Bibai grilled chicken on skewer to go. I sat at the table and ordered the grilled chicken rice bowl. The price was JPY 700.
Approximately 10 minutes later, the grilled chicken rice bowl was served. The rice was topped with grilled chicken, a fried egg and seasoned sliced onions with salty sweet sauce. The grilled chicken rice bowl, soup, hiya yakko (cold tofu) and pickles are a set. Those were served at only lunchtime. When I ate the egg and the grilled chicken together, it was very mild. Tofu was tasty, too.
