May 15th, 2014
Men-no-Hinauta (麺のひな詩) is a popular ramen restraunt in Chuo ward, Sapporo city, and is near Sapporo Factory. Mr. Osamu Shoji (庄司 修) established it in 2009. The ramen restraunt is famous for serving Shrimp Ramen (えびラーメン). He challenged new ramen such as Dipping Noodles or Tail Soup Ramen positively. The name of ramen restraunt turned into its name called Ebidoro (えびどろ) on weekend, and served only Ebidoro Ramen (えびどろラーメン). But the owner changed with new owner in 2015, and the concept of ramen was changed, too. Creamy Chicken Broth Ramen (鶏白湯ラーメン) is popular at present. An article before changing owner is as follows.

Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come.

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
Shrimp Miso Broth Ramen
I visited here around 11:00 on a weekday. The ramen restraunt with an atmosphere such as a Japanese restraunt bar was not so large, and only L-shaped counter seats were provided. I sat a counter seat, and asked a waitress about recommendation of the Shrimp Ramen. She replied me "Shrimp Miso Broth Ramen (えび味噌)". I ordered it. The price was JPY 750.
About 7 minutes later, the ramen was served. Roasted pork fillets, green onions, shrimps and radish sprouts were on noodles. Beautiful colors looked good, too. I had a sip of the soup. Salt and shrimp soup stock produced the rich taste soup. It was tasty! The noodles went well with the soup. Thanks for the tasty ramen!
