[Nanbantei in Kushiro] I AM Surprised at Hokkaido-style Deep-fried Chicken Tower. Nice Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens with Sauce and Set Meal

Nanbantei

Seiyodo Nanbantei (西洋堂 南蛮酊) is a popular restraunt near Toya Station in Kushiro town next to Kushiro city, and is almost adjacent to Kushiro-Shitsugen Wetland National Park (釧路湿原国立公園). The restraunt run by Mr. Kunio Fujino (藤野邦雄) was founded in 1980. The Kushiro is well-known as a birthplace for Zangi (ザンギ * Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chicken), a local specialty of Hokkaido, and the Nanbantei is famous for serving Zantare (ザンタレ * Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chicken with Sauce). Lawson (ローソン), a famous convenience store in Japan, used to sell Karaage-kun Hokkaido Zantare Flavor (から揚げ君 北海道ザンタレ味) supervised by the Nanbantei, so I see that the Zantare is very popular. Except it, they also serve deep-fried foods, various rice bowls, curry and rice, fried rice and various spaghetti.

The restraunt is divided into the 1st floor and the 2nd floor, and all seats are table seats. The interior decoration is like an ordinary Japanese private house. Visitors can sit at table seats without taking off their shoes on the 1st floor, and the visitors sit at table seats on the 2nd floor after they must take off their shoes on the 1st floor. The room is a little large, so I guess that family customers also enjoy meals.

By the way, a direct bus does not run between Sapporo or New Chitose Airport and the Kushiro. But highway buses "Star Light Kushiro-go (スターライト釧路号)" and "Kuhsiro Limited Express New Star-go (釧路特急ニュースター号)" run between the Sapporo and the Kushiro, and Sunrise Asahikawa-Kushiro-go (サンライズ旭川・釧路号), an express bus, runs between the Kushiro and Asahikawa, and Sweets Liner-go (スイーツライナー号) runs between Obihiro and Tancho Kushiro Airport, and Senpoku-go (釧北号), an express bus, runs between the Kitami and the Kushiro, and Akan Airport Liner (阿寒エアポートライナー) runs between Lake Akan and the Tancho Kushiro Airport. Besides, Rent-a-car can be rented around Kushiro Station and Kushiro Airport.

Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens with Sauce and Set Meal

I visited here around 14:00 on a weekday. I took off my shoes, and went up to the 2nd floor, and 2 customers were at the restraunt even at late lunchtime. I sat a table seat, and ordered the Zantare. The price was JPY 950. The Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens were served only deep-fried chicken without rice and soup, so I also ordered a set meal (a bowl of rice, a bowl of miso soup, a side dish and a dish of pickled vegetables). The price was JPY 350. The total amount was JPY 1300. The Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens with Sauce are large in quantity (About 800g), so Zantare Half (ザンタレハーフ * Half quantity of Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens with Sauce) is served, too, and the price is JPY 600. The Zantare Half and the set meal are most popular.

After waiting for about 10 minutes, Zangi with Sauce and Set Meal were served. The Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chicken Tower of about 15 cm elevation cought my eyes. That was amazing! That would look great on Instagram! I ate it without delay. Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It was tasty! The Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chicken without dipping the sauce can be enjoyed around the top, and the Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chicken with sweet and sour sauce can be enjoyed around the bottom.

As expected getting bored only of the Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens, the visitors should eat alternately the Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens and the rice, and add a change with the side dish and the pickled vegetables. I was a big eater, but 4 Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens were left. A waitress told me "If the Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens are left, in case of bringing the rest of Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens on a dish to a cash register, a waitress pack the left Hokkaido Style Deep-fried Chickens for takeout". It is a pleasure to not leave the food. By the way, I ate too much, and did not eat a dinner at that day.
