[Torimatsu in Kushiro] Traditional Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chicken with Crispy Outside and Tender Inside

Torimatsu

Torimatsu (鳥松) is a famous Hokkaido style deep-fried chicken (ザンギ) restraunt founded in 1960 in Sakae-machi, Kushiro city, and is near Karaoke Utaya (カラオケ歌屋). The restraunt run by Mr. Satoru Takakura (高倉悟), the 2nd owner, is well-known as the originator of the Hokkaido style deep-fried chicken called a local speciality of the Hokkaido. But I do not know whether correct or not because some restraunts declare the originator. But it is a fact that a lot of people visit the long-established Hokkaido style deep-fried chicken restraunt.

Appearance of Building

The restraunt is small, and only U-shaped table is provided. Visitors must seat one by one from the innermost counter seat. I guess that it is full if about 8 people sit at counter seats, so I suppose that family customers and large number of people can hardly enjoy meals. The restraunt has a good atmosphere such as a typical Japanese old bar. It is Shibui! 3 members manage the restraunt at the counter.

    Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens

    I visited here around 17:00, just opening hour, on a weekday. However, I visited here again 15 minutes later because an owner said "Opening time is delayed today". After entering the restraunt, I sat at the innermost counter seat. The first visitor was me on that day. I read menus hanging on a wall, and ordered a dish of Hokkaido style deep-fried chicken with bones (ザンギ), a dish of Hokkaido style deep-fried chicken without bones (骨なしザンギ), a dish of deep-fried chicken wing (手羽先) and an alcohol-free beer. The price were JPY 580, JPY 690, JPY 690 and JPY 420.

    Owner Fries Chickens Before My Eyes

    A kitchen was in front of customers' eyes, and the customers could see that the owner fried a lots of chickens. It was a rhythmic movement. A customer was just me, but a telephone ringed when I wondered why he fried so much chickens. The call was an order (to-go) of the Hokkaido style deep-fried chicken. They got a succession of phone calls, so it looked quite tough. A waitress served fresh Hokkaido style deep-fried chicken with bare hands on a plate. When I asked whether your hands were not hot, she replied "I get used to hot". Getting into the habit was amazing.

    After waiting for about 10 minutes, the Hokkaido style deep-fried chicken without bones was served. First I would eat it without dipping sauce. The Hokkaido style deep-fried chicken without bones had crispy outside and tender inside. It was tasty! The waitress said "Customers always eat it with dipping sauce", so second I did, and it was tasty, too!

    While eating, some visitors took the seats next to me. The visitors next to me were Mr. Yoshidai and his co-worker. They told me "The Hokkaido style deep-fried chicken without bones is tasty with dipping sauce mixed black pepper". Actually, it was tasty with spicy hot when I ate it. It was nice. The Hokkaido style deep-fried chicken with bones and the deep-fried chicken wing were served shortly afterward. The both had bones, and it took time to pull out bones, but the labor made me feel tasty.

They told me "A dish of chicken and sauteed vegetables is tasty, too", and it was surely tasty when they gave me a share. I was happy that I was able to talk to them. Meanwhile the restraunt was filled to capacity around 18:00. It was really popular restraunt.
