Jun-Sumi Type Miso Ramen Aim for Perfect Step by Step -Mikan in Otaru-
March 1st, 2017
Mikan (みかん) is a popular ramen restraunt near Nantaru market (南樽市場) in Shintomi-cho, Otaru city. An owner trained cooking at famous ramen restraunt Sumire (すみれ) and went into business on his own account in 2005. Mikan was named after Mikansei (未完成 * the uncompleted way of ramen) because he has not mastered the way of ramen perfectly and is improving it step by step. Mikan means a Mandarin orange in Japanese, and I thought so, But it is not even close to the truth.
I visited here around 14:30 on weekdays. The ramen restraunt had the warmth of a tree. I came to avoid lunchtime at this kind of time, so tables were an empty seat and I took the seat. A menu was on the wall, and I read it and ordered a popular Miso ramen. The price was JPY 750. There was a Japanese kettle for drinking water on the table. It caught my eye.
About 7 minutes later, the Miso ramen was served. While waiting for the ramen, the ramen restraunt had one visitor after another, so all the tables were almost fulled. It is very popular ramen restraunt after all. I had a ship of ramen soup, and it tasted rich oil and ginger. The taste was just Junren-Sumire type. Noodles were made by Kobayashi Making Noodles Facotry (小林製麺) and were chewy. Roasted pork fillets had 2 types, a sliced roasted pork fillet and cube roasted pork fillets, and a chewy texture was like ham. It was very tasty! Some customers ordered the miso ramen with a large serving of the roasted pork fillet.
