[Gentlemen in Niseko Kyowa] Tasty Spicy Miso Broth Ramen Is Addictive

Gentlemen

Menya Gentlemen (麺屋 じぇんとるめん) facing National Route 276 is a popular ramen restraunt founded in 2007 in Kyowa town, Niseko and is near Kunitomi Post Office. They got the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition. Their building is black and red outstanding appearance. I guess that it is in vogue because a lot of buildings in the Niseko have this decoration. The ramen restraunt is not so small, and is new. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.

Shakotan Peninsula

Shakotan Peninsula (積丹半島) is a peninsula located in the northwestern part of Otaru city, and has been designated as Niseko-Shakotan-Otaru Kaigan Quasi-National Park (ニセコ積丹小樽海岸国定公園) because of a precious complicated coastline with steep cliffs. The sea of the Shakotan is very beautiful, and looks clear blue, so everybody call Shakotan Blue (シャコタンブルー). A traffic used to be inconvenient in the old days, and tourists rarely visited here. People are easy to access the Shakotan Peninsula as well as Shiretoko Peninsula (知床半島) at present, but it is called an unexplored region because it would not develop very much. Read More

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.

Spicy Miso Broth Ramen

I visited here around 12:50 on a weekday. The ramen restraunt was almost full. Fortunately, customers began to just go home. Anyway, I purchased a meal ticket of Spicy Miso Broth Ramen (辛味噌ラーメン) via a ticket vendor. The price was JPY 800. The Miso Broth Ramen was popular. I sat at a counter seat, and handed the meal ticket to a waitress.

About 10 minutes later, the Spicy Miso Broth Ramen was served. Roasted pork fillets, green onions, bamboo shoots, a boiled egg, sauteed vegetables and a dried laver were on noodles. The noodles were egg noodle made by Nishiyama Making-Noodles Factory (西山製麺). The large roasted pork fillet caught my eyes.

I had a sip of soup immediately. Spicy taste gradually dawned on me. I felt that the salt was thick, but Umami was just like coating the salt, and I did not worry about salt. It was tasty! This taste was addictive. But I could not stop sweating. Thanks for the tasty ramen!
