[Daikokuya in Asahikawa] Tender and Tasty Mongolian Barbecue

Daikokuya

Genghis Khan Daikokuya Head Office (成吉思汗大黒屋本店) is a popular mongolian barbecue (ジンギスカン * Genghis Khan) restaurant founded in 2002 in the downtown area of Asahikawa city, and is one of the most popular mongolian barbecue with a long line in Hokkaido. Tender lamb and an atmosphere of a restraunt filled with smoke have a good reputation. Unfortunately, the head office has closed since October 2016 because of aging of the building. Only 5jo Brach Store opens a business now. An article before closing is as follows.

Appearance of Building

I visited the head office around 18:00 on a weekday. Then a line had been already formed. 4 groups of preceding visitors lined up in front of the building. Indeed, it was popular. About 20 minutes later, my turn had come at last. While waiting, the line became longer. However, a waiter suggested a large number of visitors that the large number of people were accepted at the branch store near the head office because the head office was not large. Serving dishes were the same at the branch and the head office.

My Numbered Ticket

The restraunt is very old, and is filled with smoke and an atomosphere such as a typical barbecue restraunt. Some counter seats and some table seats are provided, so maybe family customers also enjoy meals. But a line must be expected.

    ASAHIKAWA

    Asahikawa (旭川) that about 340,000 people live is the 2nd largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and has flourished as the center of the North Hokkaido area. Woodworks have been prosperous since the old days, and furniture is famous. Because water is clear, a liquor such as sake of Otokoyama (男山) and Godo Shusei (合同酒精) are famous, too. Popular tourist attractions such as Asahiyama Zoo (旭山動物園) and Biei (美瑛) are around the Asahikawa, so a lot of tourists use tourist bases in the North Hokkaido. As for a climate, the Asahikawa is located in Kamikawa Basin, the largest basin in the Hokkaido, so it is hot that temperature rises to 30 degrees C in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to -25 degrees C in a winter, and it snow very hard, too. So a winter festival using the snow is famous. Read More

    Mongolian Barbecue of Hokkaido

    Genghis Khan (ジンギスカン * Mongolian barbecue) is one of the most famous local dishes of Hokkaido, and is a dish to grill sheep meats and vegetables, and is called the comfort food of Hokkaido people. Except the Hokkaido, the Genghis Khan is also a familiar local dish in a part of Iwate Prefecture or Nagano Prefecture. The reason why the Hokkaido is closely related to the mongolian barbecue is that 5 national sheep breeding ranches were built in Takikawa (滝川), Tsukisamu (月寒), Tomobe (友部) in Ibaraki Prefecture, Hojo (北条) in Ehime Prefecture and Kumamoto (熊本) after Japanese goverment declared a production increase of wool in Meiji period. In those days, Japanese had no custom of eating meat, and did not like the taste since the sheep meats had unique taste. But the Genghis Khan is one of devised dishes for using the sheep meats as well as the wool without being wasted. Indeed, the sheep meats are different from beef and pork, and have the unique taste, so it has people divided between those that like it and those that hate it. On the contrary, the unique taste may captivate the Hokkaido people's taste buds. Read More

    A waitress shown my seat, so I sat a counter seat. First she asked me what I order a drink, so I ordered a non-alcoholic beer. The price was JPY 450. Then the waitress asked me what I order dishes and types of meat. They served only 3 types of meat, Lamb (生ラム成吉思汗), Herb Lamb (ハーブ生ラム) and Chunk of Lamb Rib Chop (厚切りラック), and I ordered all types of the Lamb. The prices were JPY 700, JPY 800 and JPY 900. By the way, vegetables produced in the Hokkaido were on the house. Thank you!

    Their Mongolian Barbecue was Tsukisamu style without soaking in sauce. In the Asahikawa, Takikawa style Mongolian Barbecue contained Mastuo Genghis Khan (松尾ジンギスカン) were served at a lot of restaurants, so I did not expect this. Afer waiting for about 5 minutes, ingredients were served. First a waitress grilled my lambs and vegetables on a Mongolian barbecue pan. Heat was strong, so those were easy to be grilled.

    I dipped the Lamb into sauce, and ate it immediately. It was very tender, and was tasty! The sauce was also tasty! Then I ate the grilled Herb Lamb without dipping into the sauce. This was tender, too. Salt taste was good. Vegetables refreshed my mouth in the intervals of eating the lambs.
