[Ippontei around Lake Toya] Black Soy Sauce Broth Ramen Called Toya Black

Ippontei

Ramen Ippontei (ラーメン一本亭) is a popular ramen restraunt founded in 2000 in Toyako Onsen Resort (洞爺湖温泉) located in the south side of Lake Toya (洞爺湖). Mr. Hideo Fujiwara (藤原 秀夫) is a ramen restraunt owner. They got the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition and 2017 Special Edition. The ramen restraunt facing Yosomiyama-dori Street (よそみ山通り) is a single-storied building, and has an atomosphere such as a sushi restaurant, and is not large. Counter seats and some small separate Japanese style rooms are provided, so I guess that even family customers may enjoy meals.

Ramen of Hokkaido

Ramen is a noodle soup dish topped with ingredients. It is said that Chinese noodles is the root of the ramen, and there are various theories, for example, Mr. Mistukuni Tokugawa (徳川光圀 * Mitokomon (水戸黄門)) ate the ramen in 1697 for the first time in Japan or the first ramen was that Keitaimen noodles (経帯麺) served in 1488 was written in Biryueken Diary (蔭涼軒日録). Noodle soup dishes were spread out in Japan because Nanking noodles (南京そば) was served in various China Towns, Japan. In Hakodate with a China Town, Yowaken (養和軒) served the Nanking noodles in 1884. In Sapporo, it is a root of Sapporo Ramen that a noodle soup dish was cooked by Mr. Wang Wen Zai (王 文彩), a chief chef of Takeya Shokudo (竹家食堂), in 1922. Houran (芳蘭), a branch of the Takeya Shokudo, opened a business in 1933 in Asahikawa. Asahikawa Ramen, Sapporo Ramen and Hakodate Ramen called the 3 Major Ramen in Hokkaido were born. But current ramen do not succeed to the taste of those ramen. Read More

Black Soy Sauce Broth Ramen

I visited here around 13:00 on a weekday. The Ippontei was popular with local people as well as tourists, and 4 groups of local people enjoyed their meals. I sat at a counter seat, and read a menu. I heard that Black Soy Sauce Broth Ramen (黒正油ラーメン) was popular, so I ordered it and Japanese Gyoza Dumplings (餃子). The price of the ramen was JPY 700, and the price of the Japanese Gyoza Dumplings was JPY 500, so the total prices were JPY 1200.

About 10 minutes later, the ramen and the Japanese Gyoza Dumplings were served successively. A roasted pork fillet, bamboo shoots, a Japanese dry baked wheat gluten and green onions were on noodles. Ingredients produced in Hokkaido were mainly used.

I ate a sip of soup immediately. It was tasty! Soup stock was made from more than 10 types of ingredients for over 20 hours. I supposed that the soup was too salty as much as the black appearance, but it was wrong. It had sweetness like soba noodles soup, and was just right seasoning. This black soup is called "Toya Black (洞爺ブラック)" by ramen lovers, and the nickname is cool!

The noodles were egg noodles made by Nishiyama Making-Noodle Factory (西山製麺), and went well with the soup. The large roasted pork fillet caught my eyes, too, and was also tasty.
