Originated Pork Rice Bowl Named Chappu-Don -Takadaya in Takikawa-

May 18th, 2016

Takadaya (高田屋) is a long-established Japanese style restaurant in Sakae-machi, Takikawa city located between Sapporo city and Asahikawa city and was founded in 1953. This restraunt is near Takikawa Station and has loved by local people. I visited here to eat a pork rice bowl named Chappu-Don (チャップ丼), Takikawa local specialty dish, around 15:00 on weekdays. There was not other customer at the restraunt. It had an atmosphere such as a good old restraunt. The restraunt had counter seats and some tables, so family customers can enjoy eating.

I sat the table and ordered the pork rice bowl named Chappu-Don. The price was JPY 750. About 10 minutes later, the pork rice bowl was served. The pork rice bowl use pork chop without bone, and an owner named the Chappu-Don. Sliced pork is thinner than an ordenary pork bowl, and taste of sauce will easy soaking into pork. Originally, the owner devised the Chappu-Don in his high school days, a lunch is a prototype model. There is dried laver hidden secretly between rice and pork, and it will be a vestige.

By the way, this pork rice bowl has used specific pathogen free pork produced in Hokkaido, and salty-sweet sauce has made with secret recipe unique to this restaurant, with specific instructions such as 'replenish the sauce continuously'. The sauce had a strong sweetness, but it went well with rice and pork. It was tasty!

    Hi Baum san,
    Welcome to the Hokkaido!
    I am glad about your returning to the Takikawa.
    My living place is Sapporo, and I can hardly visit the Takadaya, so I hope that you savor Takadaya’s dishes.
    Please enjoy yourself to the full!

    G’day good! hokkaido!
    I am very happy to see that your blog on Takadaya is still on-line. I am returning to Takikawa on Wednesday 29th May for another period of flying the Towplane at Skypark and if there are no other arrangements being made for me on my first evening back in Takikawa, I will be going to Takadaya around 7.15pm that evening.

    And as per previous years I will be going there every Tuesday evening! It really would have to be one of, if not the best, restaurants of its type in Takikawa! And I have been taken to quite a few different places in the 20 or so years I have been coming to Takikawa. The quality of the meals and the prices are simply fantastic. For me as an Australian, to spend less than $20 Australian dollars for a meal and a few beers and feel completely satisfied afterwards……No contest!!

    Hi, Lloyd san,
    Thank you for your reply.

    I hope that you and John san enjoy the Takadaya and the Sapporo beer, too!

    Thank you good! hokkaido! for your comment. I do not think that I could really be called a ‘famous’ Pilot though. That link you supplied mentions that I had worked particularly hard that year!

    Both John-san and I really like eating at Takadaya, although we are rarely in Takikawa at the same time. I hope to be back there sometime in late May next year so maybe I will see you at Takadaya one night.

    I will buy the Sapporo beer!

    Hi, John san,
    Thank you for your comment.

    I am surprised at the Takadaya that is popular with the Australian pilots.
    Anyway, I am happy you enjoy the Japanese old restaurant.
    I also love the Hokke (grilled Atka mackerel) and the Sapporo Beer (Classic) as well as the Chappu-don.
    Enjoy tasty dishes when you come to the Hokkaido next year!

    I am another Australian pilot who enjoys Takadaya. Next year I must taste Chappu-don!

    I usually enjoy their excellent Shiga Yaki or Hokke, along with a tasty Sapporo beer!

    Hi, Lloyd san,
    Thank you for your comment.
    The Takadaya has tasty dishes caontaing the Chashu men.
    I love the Pork Rice Bowl (Chappu-don) as well as the Ramen, too.

    I found your article.

    I knew you are a famous pilot, and I am so happy you love the Japanese old restaurant.
    Enjoy your Hokkaido life in 2019, too!

    I am an Australian, who comes to Japan for three months of every year to fly a Glider Towplane at Skypark in Takikawa and I go to eat at Takadaya at least two times every week whilst I am in Takikawa.

    The food there is fantastic! My favourite dish is Chashu men.

    Cannot wait to get back there again in 2019!!
