[Seiryu in Teshikaga] Stir-Fried Noodles with Starchy Sauce
July 24th, 2015
Chinese Dish Seiryu (中国料理青龍) is a Chinese restaurant near Teshikaga Town Office in Teshikaga town located in the north part of Kushiro city, and is known for serving high-class Chinese cuisine. The restaurant was given the Bib Gourmand by MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2017 Special Edition. The appearance of the building surrounded with trees is white color, so it does not looks a Chinese restaurant, but local people often visit the popular restaurant. Mashu Onsen (摩周温泉) and Akan Mashu National Park with Lake Mashu and Lake Kussharo are relatively near here, so you might as well come the restaurant during your trip.
The restaurant is not so large, and all seats are table seats, so I guess that family customers also enjoy meals. I visited here to avoided crowds for lunch around 13:00 on weekdays. No customer was at the restraunt. Most of customers are local people, so I guess that the restaurant is crowded around 12:00. Red tables standed out, and I felt an atmosphere of a good old Chinese restaurant.
Mashu Onsen (摩周温泉) is a hot spring resort in Teshikaga town located in the northern part of Kushiro city. The hot spring resort is divided into 2 hot spring places, Teshikaga Onsen (弟子屈温泉) along Kushiro River and Tobetsu Onsen (鐺別温泉) along Tobetsu River, and some hot spring facilities and accommodations are built there. Those hot spring places that were named after world famous Lake Mashu have been collectively called the Mashu Onsen since 1981. Road Station "Mashu Onsen" (道の駅「摩周温泉」) is built, and a footbath is on the site, too. In addition, Nandaro Bridge (なんだろう橋) and Suigo Park (水郷公園) are close to the road station, too. Teshikaga Station was renamed Mashu Staion in 1990. Souvenir shops, restaurants, cafes, convenience stores, Izakaya and bars with a surcharge are built in the center of the Teshikaga, too. As for tourist attractions around here, the Lake Mashu and Lake Kussharo (屈斜路湖) are famous in particular. 900 Sogen Grassland (900草原), Mt. Iou (硫黄山), and Kimto Marsh (キンムトー) are relatively near here.

Akan Mashu National Park
Akan Mashu National Park (阿寒摩周国立公園) has Lake Kussharo (屈斜路湖), the largest caldera lake in Japan, Lake Mashu (摩周湖), the 6th largest caldera lake in the Japan, and Lake Akan (阿寒湖), the 7th largest caldera lake in the Japan, in the eastern part of Hokkaido, and the oldest national park in Hokkaido along with Daisestuzan National Park (大雪山国立公園) in the north part of Kushiro-Sitsugen National Park (釧路湿原国立公園), too. In the national park, there are unique mountains such as Mt. Oakandake (雄阿寒岳), Mt. Meakandake (雌阿寒岳), Mt. Akanfuji (阿寒富士), Mt. Mokoto (藻琴山), Mt. Iou (硫黄山), Mt. Mashudake (摩周岳) and Mt. Nishibetsudake (西別岳), and here is a tourist attraction on behalf of Hokkaido containing some hot spring places such as Akanko Onsen (阿寒湖温泉), Meakan Onsen (雌阿寒温泉) and Kawayu Onsen (川湯温泉). The Akan Mashu National Park is roughly divided into 4 areas, Akanko Area, Onneto Area, Mashuko Area, and Kussharoko Area. The area is 91,413 ha in total, it is very vast. It is a highlight that a scenery was borned by growing forests and lakes created by water collecting in the craters of volcanoes after the volcanoes erupting in the primitive period, and it is said that an original scenery of Hokkaido has been creadted by "Volcanos", "Forests" and "Lakes". By the way, 900 Sogen Grassland (900草原) and Tawadaira Observaton Deck (多和平展望台) that a typical secenry of Hokkaido can be enjoyed are relatively near the national park, too. Article is here
Stir-Fried Noodles with Starchy Sauce
When I sat at a table seat, owner's wife came, so I asked her about restaurant's recommendation, and she replied "Stir-Fried Noodles with Starchy Sauce (五目焼きそば) is sold well". Therefore I ordered it. The price was JPY 700. A cup of hot tea and a cup of cold water were served at this restaurant. Cusomers can choose whatever the customers would like. That is an interesting idea.
After waiting for about 10 minutes, and it was served. Ingredients were sliced squids, sliced bamboo shoots and sliced pork. She said "Please sprinkle vinegar over the Stir-Fried Noodles with Starchy Sauce as you like". Firstly, I ate it without the vinegar. It was light taste, and was tasty! After having eaten for a while, I sprinkled the vinegar over it. Then its taste turned into very mild. This was tasty, too.
