Tokachi Butadon Ippin (十勝豚丼 いっぴん) is a pork rice bowl chain restaurant based in Obihiro city. Sorachi corp. (株式会社ソラチ) that sells sauce for Jingisukan or barbecued meat has run a pork rice bowl restaurant as a new business since 2001. The head office is in the Obihiro, and some branches open a business in Sapporo and Taiwan.
My visited place is Kita 11jo Branch in Higashi ward, Sapporo near DCM Homac, Sports Depo and Golf 5. The building is not large. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Read More
Pork Rice Bowl of Hokkaido
Pork Rice Bowl (豚丼) is a rice bowl dish dished up grilled pork with sauce on rice. It is said that Mr. Hideshi Abe (阿部 秀司), the founder of Pancho (ぱんちょう) in Obihiro, made the Pork Rice Bowl for the first time. So it has been famous in the eastern part of Hokkaido, but the dish is well-known in the whole of Japan now. The feature is that grilled pork overflows from a lid of a bowl. About 200 restaurants sell the Pork Rice Bowl even around the Obihiro, Tokachi. Each restaurants are particular about sauce and types of pork. Standard sauce of pork rice bowl in the Obihiro is salty-sweet sauce, but some restaurants such as "Tsuruhashi (鶴橋)" serve a pork rice bowl with bitter sauce, so each restaurants compete on the original taste. As for types of the pork, a lots of restaurants use various pork such as pork loins, pork ribs, superfine pork loins and superfine pork ribs. Read More
Pork Rice Bowl
I visited here around 14:00 on a weekday, but I could sit a table seat without lining up. It smelled tasty in air inside and outside. The good smell sharpened my appetite. I ordered a pork rice bowl. The price was JPY 714.
About 10 minutes later, the pork rice bowl was served with a dish of pickles. The pork protruded from a bowl. A piece of pork loin marinated in the sauce was grilled with hands, and they marinated it in the sauce again, and grilled it. Tasty sauce flavor soaked into the pork loin. Salty-sweet taste was just right, and I enjoyed it. I was glad to be able to eat a genuine pork rice bowl of the Obihiro in the Sapporo. Thanks for the tasty meal!
