[Kadoya in Kushiro] Grilled Whelks and Ramen

July 7th, 2014


Grilled Whelk Kadoya (つぶ焼き かど屋) is a restraunt specializing in grilled whelk (つぶ焼き専門店) in Sakae-machi, Kushiro city, and has been founded since 1967. Sakae-machi as well as Suehiro-cho is a famous entertainment district. As its name suggests, its building is in a corner of a street. The Kado means "A corner" in English, and ya means "A building" in English. Only 2 dishes are shown on a menu, and those prices are JPY 850 and JPY 600. Except those, Sake, Beer and so on are served. The restraunt has an atomosphere such as a typical good old Japanese‐style barbecue restraunt. Some counter seats and some table seats are provided. But I guess that family customers do not enjoy themselves because dishes for childred are nothing.

Grilled Whelk and Ramen

I visited here around 18:00, just opening hour, and I was the first customer at that day. I sat at a counter seat, and ordered the grilled whelk and the ramen. About 5 minutes later, grilled whelks dished up on a wooden plate like a chopping board was served. During about half a century, they have been grilling whelks, so I think that exclusive wooden plates are prepared to put whelks well. A staff told me "Because the whelk is very hot, you held it down with a paper napkin, and pull it out with a toothpick. Finally you should drink rest of whelk juice in a shell". The whelks were tasty, so I was going to get hooked on this taste.

The ramen was served after the Grilled Whelks. Black soup stood up. I guessed that the ramen soup might use grilled whelk sauce, and it had a strong salt taste. The dish looked like a typical Kushiro ramen with using seafood broth and thin noodles. I recommended a rich taste evangelist to this ramen.
