[Jomon in Tomakomai] Light Taste Wakashio Ramen

Jomon

Ramen Jomon (らーめん縄文) is a popular ramen restaurant facing National Route 36 in Shinkai-cho, Tomakomai city, and is near Aeon Mall Tomakomai. Jomon corp. runs it, and Mr. Dai Takakuwa (高桑 大), a company president, has established it since 2001. Students of Komazawa University Tomakomai High School (駒大苫小牧), the only Japanese High School Baseball Tournament (甲子園) champion in Hokkaido, visit here, too. An one-storied building at a part of commercial districts is large, and the interior decoration has an atomosphere such as a stylish ramen restraunt. Counter seats, table seats and a small separate Japanese style room are provided, so I guess that even family customers may enjoy meals. But the ramen restraunt is often crowded with customers.

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).

Wakashio Ramen

The Jomon is famous for rich taste ramen. But I heard from my friend that they also served light taste ramen, so I visited here around 17:00 on a weekday. A waitress shown my counter seat. There were not so a lot of customers at that time. I asked the waitress about ramen restaurant's recommendation, she replied me "Wakashio Ramen (和香潮ラーメン)". It was written as light taste ramen on a menu, I ordered it without hesitating. The price was JPY 780.

About 20 minutes later, the ramen was served. A roasted pork fillet, bamboo shoots, a boiled egg, a dried laver, green laver and green onions were on noodles. I ate a sip of soup immediately. It was tasty! Soup stock was made stock from more than 30 types of ingredients (chicken body, chicken hands and feet, pettitoes, fishery products, vegetables and fruits), and soup using it was seasoned with salt. The soup was light taste, but it had a rich flavor.
