[Restaurant Izumiya Head Office in Kushiro] Rich Taste Spakatsu Is Dish Combined Spaghetti with Breaded Pork Cutlets

July 6th, 2014


Restaurant Izumiya (レストラン泉屋) is a long-established restaurant founded in 1959 in Kushiro city. Mr. Shunichi Koizumi (小泉 俊一) is a founder. The head office is located in Suehiro-cho (末広町), a famous entertainment district in the Kushiro, and some branch restaurants open a business in the Kushiro. The Restaurant Izumiya is famous for cooking Spakatsu (スパカツ * Spaghetti and Pork Cutlets) that is well-known for the comfort food of the Kushiro. The Spakatsu is a dish of meat sauce spaghetti topped with pork cutlets. An iron plate pan used in substitution for the dish stands out. That is piping hot iron plate pan, and customers can savor a hot meal till the last. The Kushiro has less snow in Hokkaido, but I suppose that hot dishes is demanded by Kushiro people because wind is cold.

My visited place is the head office in the Suehiro-cho. It is near Kushiro River, and Nusamai Bridge (幣舞橋) crosses the river. The restaurant on the 2nd floor of the building is somewhat large, and has an atomosphere such as a good old local restraunt. All seats are table seats, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.

Spaghetti and Pork Cutlets

I visited the head office to eat the Spaghetti and Pork Cutlets around 16:00 on a weekday. Although it was not busy time, 2 groups of customers enjoyed their meals. I sat at a table seat, and ordered the Spaghetti and Pork Cutlets. The price was JPY 900. Except it, they also serve various pasta, some set meals, hamburg steaks and so on.

About 15 minutes later, the Spaghetti and Pork Cutlets was served. I ate breaded pork cutlets immediately. It was not oily than it looked, and the taste was not too rich oily, too. Meat sauce went well with the breaded pork cutlets, and it was tasty! The spaghetti with an adequate hardness was good, too. In addition, it is the amount of dish not to have to forget. This is a portion for one person. When I asked a waitress, she replied me "The menu has a large serving of spaghetti and breaded pork cutlets, and an extra large serving of those is on not officially menu". Hey, big eater! Let's try it! Thanks for the tasty meal!
