April 16th, 2015

Kukai (空海) is a famous pork rice bowl restraunt in Eniwa city located in the south part of Sapporo city and started a business in Eniwa in 2011. They garnered the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition, and became more popular.

I visited here around 11:00 on weekdays. The restraunt was not so large, but there were some tables, so family customers seem to enjoy. I sat a counter seat and read a menu. Because this restraunt was known for tasty buckwheat noodles, I ordered a pork rice bowl and the buckwheat noodles served on a flat bamboo sieve combo (空海セット * Kukai-set). The price was JPY 1050.

Approximately 15 minutes later, the Kukai-set was served. Meanwhile, visitors came one after another and the restraunt was almost full. This restraunt was very popular. As for the pork rice bowl, porks preserved in sweet sauce with charcoal-broiled mesh patterns sharpened my appetite. Its taste was not too salty and not too sweet. Rice went with well the sauce, it was tasty!

The buckwheat noodles were made from rare botan buckwheat (牡丹そば) produced in Urausu (浦臼) and they served hand-made buckwheat noodles. The buckwheat noodles were stiffer and had a specific texture with chewability. It was tasty, too!
