Curry Zion

Curry Zion (カリーザイオン) is a popular soup curry restraunt founded in 2004 in Hanazono-cho, Rumoi city located in the northwestern part of Asahikawa city. Mr. Motoharu Tanaka (田中 元治) is a restraunt owner. The restaurant was given the Bib Gourmand by MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2017 Special Edition. I heard that the Curry Zion is the only soup curry restraunt given the Bib Gourmand in Hokkaido. That is amazing! The appearance and the interior decoration was renewed in 2019. An article before renewing is the following.

Their restraunt's name is named after "Iron Lion Zion", a famous song, of Mr. Bob Marley, a famous reggae singer, and red color and green color are used as key colors of the restraunt in Rastafarian color, red color, yellow color and green color. The interior decoration has an atomosphere of a variety store. Handemade goods and accessories are also sold. The restraunt is not so large, but counter seats, table seats and raised tatami-floored seating area are provided, so I guess that family customers also enjoy their meals.

It is located in the northwestern part of Asahikawa city, and seafood processing is flourished. Market share of Herring Roe (カズノコ) grows to 50% of the total domestic production. In the old days, a lot of the herrings used to be caught around here. But a herring fishing industry is unfortunately not flourishing at present.

Soup Curry

Soup curry (スープカレー) is a dish to eat rice into soup using various spices with vegetables and meats. Only curry and rice was once a curry dish in Japan, but the soup curry has become popular for these 20 years. Ajanta (アジャンタ) and Magic Spice (マジックスパイス) in Sapporo sparked the soup curry boom, and it is said that the origin of the soup curry is medicinal cooking curry (薬膳カリィ) cooked by Mr. Muneo Tatsujiri (辰尻 宗男), ex-restraunt owner of the Ajanta, and a new genre of a curry dish has been established. After that, Mr. Taizan Shimomura (下村 泰山), a restraunt owner of the Magic Spice, named the curry dish as the soup curry, and it has widely spread. Article is here

I visited here around 13:30 on a weekday. 3 groups of customers savored their meals at the restraunt. I sat a seat on the raised tatami-floored seating area, and read a nice handwritten menu on a wall. Unknown plants like Voynich Manuscript were good. I found an unusual menu, Soup Curry with Fried Chinese Chives and Pork (ニラ豚スープカレー). Sliced pork, sliced Chinese chives and sesame seeds like foodstuffs for Chinese food were used, and sharpened my appetite. I ordered it with 2nd spicy (medium spicy) in 5 grade spicy and a large portion of rice. The price was JPY 980, and the rice of extra charge was JPY 100.

Menu Has Good taste

About 15 minutes later, the soup curry was served. The soup and ingredients looked a large portion, and the rice was steamed rice. I ate only the soup and the ingredients immediately. It was light taste with spicy, and had a just right amount of salt. A flavor of the sesame was tasty, too! The crunchy texture of the frid Chinese chives and the sliced tender pork were very good. The rice sopped in my soup was tasty, too. The soup was a large portion, so I supposed that customers may get tired of the taste, but I never had enough. I know that a lot of visitors come to be attracted by good taste. Thanks for the meal!
