Kawamura

Kawamura (河むら) is a popular ramen restaurant based in Kushiro city. It has been established since 1989. Mr. Junya Kawamura (河村 潤也) is a ramen restaurant owner at present. The Kawamura was given the MICHELIN PLATE by MICHELIN Hokkaido 2017 Special Edition. They used to have branch restaurants, but only the head office in Suehiro-cho called the lragest entertainment district in the Kushiro opens a buisiness now. The founder trained his cooking skill for about 15 years at Ginsui (銀水), a long-established ramen restaurant called one of roots of Kushiro Ramen, so the Kawamura is famous for serving the traditional Kushiro ramen.

The ramen restraunt with an atmosphere such as a typical ramen restraunt is not so large. But counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.

Ramen of Hokkaido

Ramen is a noodle soup dish topped with ingredients. It is said that Chinese noodles is the root of the ramen, and there are various theories, for example, Mr. Mistukuni Tokugawa (徳川光圀 * Mitokomon (水戸黄門)) ate the ramen in 1697 for the first time in Japan or the first ramen was that Keitaimen noodles (経帯麺) served in 1488 was written in Biryueken Diary (蔭涼軒日録). Noodle soup dishes were spread out in Japan because Nanking noodles (南京そば) was served in various China Towns, Japan. In Hakodate with a China Town, Yowaken (養和軒) served the Nanking noodles in 1884. In Sapporo, it is a root of Sapporo Ramen that a noodle soup dish was cooked by Mr. Wang Wen Zai (王 文彩), a chief chef of Takeya Shokudo (竹家食堂), in 1922. Houran (芳蘭), a branch of the Takeya Shokudo, opened a business in 1933 in Asahikawa. Asahikawa Ramen, Sapporo Ramen and Hakodate Ramen called the 3 Major Ramen in Hokkaido were born. But current ramen do not succeed to the taste of those ramen. Read More

Soy Sauce Broth Ramen

I visited here around 20:00 on a weekday, but it was about full. They looked getting on in business. I guess that the ramen restraunt is crowded with cutomers in the night because of the entertainment distric. I asked a waiter about ramen restaurant's recommendation, he replied me "Soy Sauce Broth Ramen (醤油ラーメン)". The price was JPY 650.

About 10 minutes later, the Soy Sauce Broth Ramen was served. Green onions, a roasted pork fillet and bamboo shoots were on noodles. Noodles were made by Muto Making-noodles Factory (むとう製麺). The Kawamura pledged to keep a tradition of the Kushiro Ramen. It featured the light taste soup that a chicken and an onion were added to the soup broth of fish tupe and thin curled noodles. In addition, the ramen had no oily feeling because cooking oil was not used very much. The Kushiro Ramen was totally different from Asahikawa Ramen with much cooking oil. But it was the good old taste that I ate it in the Kushiro in old days. Thanks for the tasty ramen!
