One of 3 Major Conveyor Belt Sushi Chain Stores in Hokkaido -Nemuro Hanamaru Head Office in Nemuro-
June 5th, 2017
Nemuro Hanamaru Head Office (根室花まる本店) is a popular conveyor belt sushi chain store (回転寿司チェーン店) in Nemuro city and was founded in 1982. This conveyor belt sushi chain restraunt is one of the 3 major conveyor belt sushi chain restraunts in Hokkaido. They have STELLAR PLACE branch in Sapporo, Ginza branch in Tokyo and Marunouchi branch in Tokyo. After all I was in the Nemuro, I wanted to eat the sushi at the head office and visited here at 11:00 on weekdays. There were 3 groups of customers at the restraunt at this early hour. They were local people and tourists. I think the tourists wanted to eat the sushi at the head office, too.
I sat at a counter seat and read menus. I wanted to eat sushi items caught around Nemuro, so I ordered a dish of Sea Peach Caught around Nemuro (根室産赤ほや), a dish of Raw Octopus Caught around Ochiishi (落石産活きだこ) and a dish of Raw Gosogarei Flatfish (Caught around Nemuro) Served with Kelp (根室産ごそがれいの昆布〆). I was interstead in Raw Scallop Caught around Notsuke (野付産の生ホタテ), King Crab Roe (たらば蟹外子), Abdomen of Crab (かにのふんどし) and Raw Squid with Grating Horseradish (真いか山わさび) and ordered those. The prices were the Sea Peach (JPY 320), the King Crab Roe (JPY 320), the Raw Octopus (JPY 230), the Gosogarei Flatfish Served with Kelp (JPY 230), Raw Scallop (JPY 420), the Abdomen of Crab (JPY 270) and the Raw Squid with Grating Horseradish (JPY 230).
After a short while, the Sea Peach Caught around Nemuro was served. The appearance was very unordinary. Red sushi item remind me of salomn, but its shape was not the salmon. I ate it at once. The taste was just sea squirt and was a little bitter. I guess that goes well with sake. Then the King Crab Roe and Raw Scallop were served. Black roe was cool, and I got hooked on the pop texture. As for the Raw Scallop, it was very large! That was chewy and was tasty.
After eating the King Crab Roe and Raw Scallop, the Raw Gosogarei Flatfish Served with Kelp and Raw Octopus were served. Both the sushi item were very chewy. I thought very fresh. At last I ate the Abdomen of Crab and the Raw Squid with Grating Horseradish. Those were tasy, too. The horseradish irritated my nose very much. The Nemuro Hanamru is famous for large sushi items, and I think so, too. It is just a confidential of the popularity.
