Rare Salt Ramen is Tasty with Light Taste -Asahi Shokudo in Kamikawa-
February 18th, 2015
Asahi Shokudo (あさひ食堂) is a popular ramen restaurant in Kamikawa town located in the eastern part of Asahikawa city. I heard from my friend that ramen was tasty, and I visited here. There were 3 groups of preceding visitors when I visited here around 11:30 on weekdays. Then, visitors entered ramen restaurant one after another. As I expected, this ramen restraunt was popular and had an atmosphere such as a typical Japanese restraunt. There were some tables and family customers seem to enjoy. By the way, Kamikawa town advocate that they serve most tasty ramen in Japan because their soup and noodles are used meltwater of Daisetsuzan and they are proud of their ramen.
Their recommendations are specially made miso ramen (特みそ) or rare salt ramen (幻の塩ラーメン). Because the rare salt ramen was limited 20 dishes a day, I decided to order it. The price was JPY 950. The rare salt ramen was used natural salt of Lake Sarama. That was very unusual. Ingredients were a roasted bird fillet, pine nuts, fine strips of green onions, sesame and fine strips of red peppers.
Approximately 10 minutes later, the rare salt ramen was served. The pine nuts, the fine strips of green onions, the sesame and a ramen bowl were served separately. An owner said "At first, please put the pine nut, the fine strips of green onions, the sesame on the ramen as you like after having a sip of the soup". They would be confident of the soup. I had a sip of the soup at once. This mouthful was shocking to me. Light taste with Umami spread over in my mouth.
I put the pine nuts, the fine strips of green onions and the sesame on the noodles afterwards. Then I ate it all up. Because it was light taste soup, I felt the monotonous taste in the latter half, but first mouthful was a surprising taste. People who love light taste will like this.
