Soy Sauce Ramen with Nostalgic Taste -Misuzu in Obihiro-
November 23rd, 2015
Misuzu (みすゞ) is a long-established ramen restraunt in Obihiro city. There is a building along Hirokoji street (広小路) and is the ramen restraunt named Misuzu on first floor and is a cafe named Misuzu on second floor, too. I suspect that a same person runs both or family runs both. Speaking of Misuzu, Japanese people remember Misuzu coffee, but I do not know whether those are connected with each other. By the way, a signboard says UCC coffee.
I visited here around 13:30 on weekdays. The restraunt was not so large, and there were 5 groups of visitors. This ramen restraunt seems to have always a long line at lunchtime. There were surely some chairs for waiting outside the ramen restraunt. The interior decoration seemed to have an atmosphere such as a cafe. I sat at a counter seat and read a menu. The most popular menu was soy sauce ramen (正油ラーメン), and I ordered it. The price was JPY 670. Other visitors order the soy sauce ramen, too. It will have always been popular ramen.
Approximately 5 minutes later, the soy sauce ramen was served. Ssoup was very black and I supposed whether it was too salty, but the soup was light taste than its looks. The appearance was like Asahikawa ramen, but the taste was like Kushiro ramen, it tasted the soup broth of small dried sardines or dried bonito shavings. This tasted nostalgic.
The noodles were made by Hokari Noodles Factory in Obihiro. I enjoyed the soy sauce ramen.
We can buy a Misuzu's ramen on Amazon.
