[Kirara in Nanporo] Cabbage Kimchi Ramen with Sweetness and Spiciness
June 16th, 2015
Naporo Ramen Kiarara (南幌らーめん きらら) is a popular ramen restraunt at a residential area, Nanporo town located in the eastern part of Sapporo city. Mr. Toshiki Miura (三浦 敏樹), a ramen restraunt owner, has established it since 2003. He is also an administrative scrivener, so the Kiarara is a slightly strange ramen restraunt. But they have skills, so they got the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition and 2017 Special Edition. Cabbage Kimchi Ramen (キャベツキムチらーめん) using cabbage produced in Nanporo has a good reputation.
The ramen restraunt on the 1st floor of a 2 story private house is not so large, and has an atomosphere such as a typical local restaurant. The interior decoration uses woods, so a warmth of the woods is felt. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers 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. Article is here
Cabbage Kimchi Ramen
I visited here around 14:00 on a weekday. No one enjoyed a meal at that time. I sat at a table seat, and ordered the Cabbage Kimchi Ramen. The price was JPY 850. The ramen was rich taste, so customers could ask to adjust to light taste beforehand. But I did not adjust it because I had never eat the Cabbage Kimchi Ramen.
Abou 10 minutes later, the ramen was carried with a serving cart. Roasted pork fillets, bamboo shoots, a Japanese marinated soft boiled egg, wakame seaweed, kimchi, sesame seeds and green onions were on noodles. I ate a sip of soup immediately. I did not feel that the soup was such rich taste than its looks. The soup based on miso broth used no chemical seasoning, and was spicy, but I could savor it. It was tasty!
The chewy noodles were curled noodles made by Sagamiya Noodles-Making Factory (さがみ屋製麺), and wente well with the spicy soup. The kimichi using pickled cabbage produced in the Nanporo had the sweetness, and the taste was so good. The crunchy texture of the cabbage was also good. My mouth was comfortable. In the latter half, I was sweaty under the influence of the spicy soup. But that was delicious! Thanks for the tasty ramen!
