[Kikuyo Shokudo Head Office in Hakodate] Seafood Rice Bowl with Tasty Salmon Roe, Sea Urchin, Scallop Are Good Combination
June 19th, 2014
Ajidokoro Kikuyo Shokudo (味処 きくよ食堂) is a long-established restraunt founded in 1956 in Hakodate Morning Market, Hakodate city, and is near Hakodate Station. Originally the restraunt used to be the restraunt used by morning market peddlers, but it became popular by tasty dishes. A lot of tourists visit the restraunt. They have the head office, a branch office, Bay Area Branch and New Chitose Airport Branch at present.
My visited place is the head office. The appearance of the restraunt has an atmosphere of the Showa period, and the restraunt is slim like a traditional house in Kyoto. All seats are table seats, so I guess that even family customers may enjoy meals.

Hakodate (函館) that about 260,000 people live is the 3rd largest port city in Hokkaido, and is a regional hub city of the Southern Hokkaido area. The Hakodate became incorporated with Toi town (戸井), Esan town (恵山), Todohokke village (椴法華) and Minami-kayabe town (南茅部) in 2004, and most of Kameda Peninsula (亀田半島) has changed to the Hakodate. It is one of most popular tourist cities in the Hokkaido, and about 5 million people visit here. The downtown of the Hakodate from Mt. Hakodate toward former Goryokaku fort is developed on a large sandbar between the seas, and a unique seashore landscape is very popular. Although a lot of tourists think the center town of the Hakodate is around Hakodate Station and the Mt. Hakodate, it is around Hakodate Streetcar Goryokaku Koen-mae Stop (函館市電五稜郭公園前駅). The Hakodate is also well-known as a city with a lot of slopes, and there are 19 slopes with its name such as Hachiman-zaka slope (八幡坂), Daisan-zaka slope (大三坂) and Motoi-zaka slope (基坂), so around the Mt. Hakodate has a lot of slope lands, and the Hakodate has a lot of narrow roads. As for a climate, the Hakodate is wamer than other cities in the Hokkaido because it is located of the Southern Hokkaido, and it does not snow hard. Article is here
Tomoe-don Rice Bowl
I sat at a table seat, and ordered Tomoe-don Rice Bowl (巴丼) that this restraunt was said to be the originator. The price was JPY 1680. This dish was a rice bowl topped with 3 kinds of seafood "Salmon Roe, Sea Urchin and Scallop".
About 10 minutes later, the Tomoe-don Rice Bowl was served with a bowl of funori glue miso soup and a dish of pickles. Yellow color, red color and white color were divided into 3 parts, and the state meaned "Mitsudomoe * triangular fight" in Japanese, so I supposed that the rice bowl was named after the Mitsudomoe. * Mistu means "3" in Japanese, and another reading of Domoe is Tomoe. The appearance looked tasty, too.
Because the sea urchins and the salmon roe used specially made sauce, I poured soy sauce with grated wasabi into only the scallop, and ate it. All of the seafood were tasty, and I felt that the sea urchin was very tasty whether this sauce was tasty in particular, and had eaten only sea urchin at the very beginning. In addition, the funori glue miso soup went well with seafood rice bowl after all. Thanks for the tasty meal!
