Soy Sauce Broth Ramen with Tasty Garlicky -Tsuruya in Asahikawa-

April 1st, 2015

Tsuruya (つるや) is a famous ramen restaurant near Asahikawa-Yojo Station and was founded in 1972. They won the 2nd Asahikawa Ramen Grand Prize (第2回北海道経済旭川ラーメン大賞) held by Hokkaido economy and are a very popular ramen restaurant. By the way, their miso broth ramen (味噌ラーメン) seemed to win the award at that time. Therefore many visitors order miso broth ramen with vegetables (野菜味噌ラーメン). When I visited here around 11:00, there were approximately 5 groups of preceding visitors, several people ordered the miso vegetables ramen.

The ramen restraunt had an atmosphere such as an old style ramen restraunt. There are some tables, so family customers seem to enjoy. Because I visited here for the first time, I ordered soy sauce broth ramen (醬油ラーメン) which was the most basic of the Asahikawa ramen. The price was JPY 720.

Approximately 10 minutes later, the soy sauce broth ramen was served. Ingredients were roasted pork fillets, bamboo shoots and green onions. The garlicky soup was very tasty, and it had a light taste with Umami. I did not feel that it was too salty even if I had soup. The noodles were made by Kato Ramen and went well with the soup. When I finished eating for approximately 15 minutes and left the ramen restaurant, the ramen restaurant was almost full. They seemed to be local people, this ramen restaurant was loved by local people.
