Chinese Chicken Hamburger Represents South Hokkaido -Lucky Pierrot in Hakodate-
June 19th, 2014
Lucky Pierrot (ラッキーピエロ) is a popular fast food restaurant in Hakodate city and was founded in 1987. An illustration of a big clown is famous. As for this strange name, a president had been liked circuses since childhood, and he wanted to make so exciting restaurant. Speaking of the circus, a pierrot (clown) was indispensable for it. * The clown is generally called pierrot in Japan. Because he felt a sad impression to the pierrot, "lucky" was added before the pierrot. It is an origin of this interesting name.
There are 16 restaurants around Hakodate in Southern Hokkaido and are various menus such as a popular Chinese chicken burger (チャイニーズチキンバーガー), hong kong style chow mein (あんかけ焼きそば) and etc. At each restaurants, both dishes and prices are different. I visited here to eat the chinese chicken burger with selling 300,000 a year this time. I visited 2 branches, but both parking lots were full. I visited Hitomi branch and at last I was able to enter the restraunt. I knew that it was very popular restaurants by local people after all.
I ordered Dantotsu 1banninki set (ダントツ人気ナンバー1セット * the most popular combo) at once. The Chinese chicken burger, a box of lucky potato, a cup of oolong tea are made a set. They did not cook a meal in advance, provided the newnewly fresh meal. The price is JPY 650. The restraunt was based on green color and had an atomosphere such as a typical fast food restraunt. There were many tables and family customers seem to enjoy.
Approximately 10 minutes later, the most popular combo was served. As for the Chinese chicken burger, a sweet-sour fried chicken resembled Subuta (sweet-sour pork). The lucky potato was taste such as a gratin with pouring white sauce and cheese. It was very rich taste, and young people would love the taste. If I was a little younger, I would want to eat more.
