[Closed Business: Namishibuki Kitami Branch in Kitami] Milky Taste of Salt Broth Ramen with Green Onion Surprised Me

Namishibuki

Namishibuki (波飛沫) is a popular ramen restraunt founded in 2008, and the head office is in Utoro, Shari town. The Namishibuki means "Sea spray" in Japanese. Mr. Hiroaki Kitabayashi (北林 弘明) is a ramen restraunt owner. He trained his cooking skill at Santoka (山頭火), a famous Asahikawa ramen restraunt, and became independent. It is said that the Namishibuki take from the taste of the Santoka's Ramen. They have also a branch ramen restraunt founded in 2011 in Kitami, and Mr. Hikaru Kaida (開田 光) is a shop manager. Both of the head office and the Kitami branch got the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition, so that is amazing! My visited ramen restraunt was the Kitami branch. Unfortunately, the Kitami branch was closed down in June, 2018. This article before closing is as follows. Mr. Hikaru Kaida becomes independent, and open a ramen restraunt named "Menya Hikaru (麺屋 ひかる)" at present.

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.

Salt Broth Ramen with Green Onions

I visited the Kitami branch around 13:00 on Sunday. The ramen restraunt with an atmosphere of a typical ramen restraunt was almost full, and was not large. It is said that a line is formed at lunchtime. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals. A waitress shown my seat, and I sat a counter seat, and ordered a bowl of Salt Broth Ramen with Green Onion (塩ネギラーメン). The price was JPY 880.

The noodles were made by Kobayashi Making-noodles Factory (小林製麺) and, went with well the soup. It was unusual for having both roasted pork fillet and braised pork belly. I was satisfied. Thanks for the tasty ramen!
