Hakodate Ramen Evaluated by Michelin Guide -Seiryuken in Hakodate-
September 5th, 2014
Seiryuken (星龍軒) is a restaurant near Hakodate station in Hakodate city and was founded in 1951. Seiryuken was known as a long-established ramen restaurant of Hakodate ramen and got the Bib Gourmand in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition. I expected that many visitors lined up before opening hour and arrived at the ramen restaurant 10 minutes ago. There was only one couple at that time. However, 14 groups of visitors lined up at opening the ramen restraunt. That reminded me of many people who begun to line up at opening time in Hokkaido.
The restraunt had an atomosphere such as a typical Japanese good old restraunt and was not so large. There are some tables, so family customers seem to enjoy. But lines have to be expected. I sat at a counter seat and ordered the salt ramen (塩ラーメン) at once. The price was JPY 580. Approximately 5 minutes later, the salt ramen with high reputation was served.
Ingredients were roasted pork fillets, bamboo shoots, green onions and honewort. As I heard from my friend, soup with Umami was light taste. It was not too salty and was my impression that the umami was just like wrapping the salt. The soup with transparence looked beautiful. Noodles were made by Deguchi making-noodles factory. After having drunk up the soup, I left the restaurant. Then 14 groups of visitors lined up at an entrance. It was really popular restaurant.
