[Closed Business: Ryouka in Shizunai] Mild Blended Miso Broth Ramen
May 10th, 2014
Ramen Ryouka (ラーメン涼華) is a popular ramen restaurant in Shizunai, Shinhidaka town located between Tomakomai city and Cape Erimo, and is near Shizunai Government Branch. The Ryouka is famous for placing in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition. Their building with a stylish atmosphere looks new, and is not so large. Counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers may enjoy meals. Unfortunately, they closed down. This article before closing is as follows.
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
Blended Miso Broth Ramen
I visited here around 11:00, just opening hour, on a weekday. I sat at a counter seat, and read a menu. I ordered Blended Miso Broth Ramen (合わせ味噌), the most popular ramen. The price was JPY 730. While I was waiting for the ramen, 2 groups of customers entered the ramen restraunt. Since visitors came in at such hour, the Ryoka is popular after all.
About 10 minutes later, the ramen was served. A roasted pork fillet, fried bean sprouts, green onions and bamboo shoots were on noodles. I had a sip of soup immediately. Although cooking fat floated on the surface of the soup, I felt creamy taste on my tongue. I guess that light taste lovers favorite this soup. It was tasty! The noodles were egg noodles made by Nishiyama Making-noodles Factory (西山製麺), and went well with the soup. Because local people visited here one after another, I supposed that it must be the taste loved by local people. Thanks for the tasty ramen!
