[Tsuruya in Asahikawa] Soy Sauce Broth Ramen with Tasty Garlicky Flavor

April 1st, 2015

Tsuruya

Ramen Senmon Tsuruya (ラーメン専門 つるや) is a long-established ramen restaurant founded in 1972 in Asahikawa city, and is near Asahikawa-Yojo Station. Tsuruya Hosoki Corp. runs the ramen restaurant, and Mr. Shinichi Koya (古屋 真一) is a company president. 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. So they are a very popular ramen restaurant. By the way, their Miso Broth Ramen (味噌ラーメン) won the award at that time. Therefore a lot of visitors order the Miso Broth Ramen with Vegetables (野菜味噌ラーメン) when I visited here.

The building has an atmosphere such as the Showa period. The ramen restaurant is not so large, but counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.

ASAHIKAWA

Asahikawa (旭川) that about 340,000 people live is the 2nd largest commercial city in Hokkaido, and has flourished as the center of the North Hokkaido area. Woodworks have been prosperous since the old days, and furniture is famous. Because water is clear, a liquor such as sake of Otokoyama (男山) and Godo Shusei (合同酒精) are famous, too. Popular tourist attractions such as Asahiyama Zoo (旭山動物園) and Biei (美瑛) are around the Asahikawa, so a lot of tourists use tourist bases in the North Hokkaido. As for a climate, the Asahikawa is located in Kamikawa Basin, the largest basin in the Hokkaido, so it is hot that temperature rises to 30 degrees C in a summer, and it is cold that temperature falls to -25 degrees C in a winter, and it snow very hard, too. So a winter festival using the snow is famous. Article is here

Soy Sauce Broth Ramen

I visited here around 11:00 on a weekday. 5 groups of preceding customers enjoyed their meals at the ramen restaurant. Because I visited here for the first time, I ordered Soy Sauce Broth Ramen (正油ラーメン) that was the most basic of Asahikawa Ramen. The price was JPY 720.

About 10 minutes later, the Soy Sauce Broth Ramen was served. A roasted pork fillet, bamboo shoots and green onions were on the noodles. I had a sip of soup immediately. The garlicky flavor soup using double soup mixed pork bone soup stock with fishery product soup stock 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. A thick slice of the roasted pork fillet had a good reputation, and I supposed that its thickness was about 1 cm.

When I finished eating for about 15 minutes and left the ramen restaurant, the ramen restaurant was almost full. I guessed that they were local people, and this ramen restaurant was loved by local people. A lot of customers ordered the Miso Broth Ramen, so it was also popular, after all. Thanks for the tasty meal!
