[Shut Down: Jogura in Yoichi] Yoichi Maehama Shrimp Ramen Was Evaluated by MICHELIN GUIDE

Jogura

Ramen Jogura (ラーメン じょぐら) is a popular ramen restraunt in Yoichi town located in the root of Shakotan Peninsula. It takes about 5 minutes from Yoichi Station to here on foot. Mr. Tadashi Kashiwazaki (柏崎 正) has established it since 2000. The Jogura means "A warehouse" in Hokkaido dialect. But I have never known it, so I guess that it is Hamakotoba (浜言葉 * dialect that fishing village speak). The Jogura was given the MICHELIN PLATE by MICHELIN Hokkaido 2017 Special Edition. Yoichi Maehama Shrimp Ramen (余市前浜えびラーメン) served only from March to October is the most popular ramen. The owner is an ex-shrimp fishermen, and he serves ramen topped with grilled sweet shrimps. Unfortunately, they closed down in October, 2018. This article before closing is as follows.

    Shakotan Peninsula

    Shakotan Peninsula (積丹半島) is a peninsula located in the northwestern part of Otaru city, and has been designated as Niseko-Shakotan-Otaru Kaigan Quasi-National Park (ニセコ積丹小樽海岸国定公園) because of a precious complicated coastline with steep cliffs. The sea of the Shakotan is very beautiful, and looks clear blue, so everybody call Shakotan Blue (シャコタンブルー). A traffic used to be inconvenient in the old days, and tourists rarely visited here. People are easy to access the Shakotan Peninsula as well as Shiretoko Peninsula (知床半島) at present, but it is called an unexplored region because it would not develop very much. Read More

    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. Read More

    Yoichi Maehama Shrimp Ramen

    I visited here around 13:30 on a weekday. 3 groups of customers enjoyed their meals at that time. A waitress said "Please buy a meal ticket", so I bought the meal ticket of the Yoichi Maehama Shrimp Ramen via a ticket vendor near an entance. The price was JPY 880. In that case, she asked me "We serve a bowl of rice for free, do you want?", and I wanted it. I sat at a counter seat, and waited for the ramen.

    About 8 minutes later, the ramen was served. First of all, shiny red soup caught my eyes. The color looked very spicy by all appearances. Grilled sweet shrimp and green onions were on noodles.

    I ate a sip of the soup at once. It was not unexpectedly spicy at all. Pork broth was mixed with miso, red pepper, chili oil and shrimp broth, so it had light taste and rich taste (こっさり味), and was not too salty taste that I have never eaten. It was tasty!

    The chewy noodles were thick, and went well with the soup. I ate the grilled sweet shrimp without skinning the shells. The crispy texture was good. The soup also went well with the rice, and it was very good, too. Thanks for the tasty ramen!
