Tasty Oyster Buckwheat Noodles Is Good for Body -Tamagawaan in Kushiro-
April 26th, 2015
Tamagawaan (玉川庵) is a famous buckwheat noodles restraunt in Tottori, Kushiro city and is known for making oyster buckwheat noodles (牡蠣そば) for the first time, and they garnered one star in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition. Originally, an owner run a buckwheat noodles restraunt in Akkeshi that is famous for the oyster culture and would buy the oyster field in a different field accidentally. For 3 years, he seemed to discover a method to cook the oyster that had a muddy odor tasty with the buckwheat noodles. They moved to Kushiro, and approximately 40 years passed. The Tamagawaan became long-established buckwheat noodles restraunt loved by local people.
A building reflects an image of a herring fishing house (鰊番屋) and looks appearing on a screen of the ghibli (ジブリ). The restraunt has an atomosphere such as a Japanese-style barbecue cooked in front of customers at the restaurant and many antique ornaments are displayed. There are many tables and family customers seem to enjoy.
A popular oyster buckwheat noodles are JPY 1400. The buckwheat noodles are topped with the fat oysters. Wakame seaweed and highly seasoned soup seem to be secrets to make the oyster buckwheat noodles tasty. Because the buckwheat noodles are chewy country buckwheat noodles, visitors must chew several times. The oysters itself are tasty, and the soup with the oyster extract is tasty, too!
The owner said "Because the oyster is good for our body and we made the tasty oyster buckwheat noodles, Michelin might evaluate us". Mr. Bernard Delmas, president of Japanese Michelin, came to eat, and he seemed to check their taste. But he ate the buckwheat noodles served on a flat bamboo serve, and he did not eat the oyster buckwheat noodles. The owner told me such an interesting story.
