[Lucky Pierrot in Hakodate] Chinese Chicken Hamburger Called Comfort Food of Hakodate
June 19th, 2014
Lucky Pierrot (ラッキーピエロ) is a popular fast food chain restaurant established by Mr. Ichiro Wang (王 一郎) in Hakodate city since 1987. The restaurant is well-known as one of the most popular hamburger shops in the Hakodate, and an illustration of a big clown is famous. The head ofiice is in Nanae, and some brach restaurants open a business in the Hakodate, Mori, Hokuto and Esashi. He had been liked circuses since his childhood, and this strange restaurant's name was named after his thoughts that he wanted to make so exciting restaurant. Speaking of a 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 the origin of this interesting name.
They have a lot of dishes on menu, and serve 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), Curry and Rice, Omelette and Rice and so on. Dishes and prices are different depending on each branch restaurants. I visited the Lucky Pierrot to eat the Chinese Chicken Burger that is selling 300,000 a year this time. I visited 2 branch restaurants, but both parking lots were full, so I visited Hitomi Branch (人見店). Finally, I was able to enter the Lucky Pierrot. I knew that it was very loved by local people after all. The building of the Hitomi Branch is based on green color, and has an atomosphere such as a typical fast food restraunt. All seats are table seats, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.

Hakodate (函館) that about 260,000 people live is the 3rd largest port city in Hokkaido, and is a regional hub city of the Southern Hokkaido area. The Hakodate became incorporated with Toi town (戸井), Esan town (恵山), Todohokke village (椴法華) and Minami-kayabe town (南茅部) in 2004, and most of Kameda Peninsula (亀田半島) has changed to the Hakodate. It is one of most popular tourist cities in the Hokkaido, and about 5 million people visit here. The downtown of the Hakodate from Mt. Hakodate toward former Goryokaku fort is developed on a large sandbar between the seas, and a unique seashore landscape is very popular. Although a lot of tourists think the center town of the Hakodate is around Hakodate Station and the Mt. Hakodate, it is around Hakodate Streetcar Goryokaku Koen-mae Stop (函館市電五稜郭公園前駅). The Hakodate is also well-known as a city with a lot of slopes, and there are 19 slopes with its name such as Hachiman-zaka slope (八幡坂), Daisan-zaka slope (大三坂) and Motoi-zaka slope (基坂), so around the Mt. Hakodate has a lot of slope lands, and the Hakodate has a lot of narrow roads. As for a climate, the Hakodate is wamer than other cities in the Hokkaido because it is located of the Southern Hokkaido, and it does not snow hard. Article is here
Most Popular Combo
I ordered Dantotsu Ninki-Number1 Set (ダントツ人気ナンバー1セット * The most popular combo) immediately. A Chinese chicken burger, a box of lucky potato, a cup of oolong tea are made a set. The price was JPY 650. I could not help eating the Lucky Pierrot's humburger called "The comfort food of the Hakodate". They do not cook a meal in advance, and serve newnewly fresh meal.
About 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 I supposed that young people would love the taste. If I was a little younger, I would want to eat more. I got full. Thanks for the tasty meal!
