Hachiya (蜂屋)| Ramen Restautant | Asahikawa

Hokkaido has several places which are famous for ramen noodles! Asahikawa is one of them. Typical Asahikawa ramen means ramen with fish-and-pork based broth.
Today I'll show you  "Hachiya (蜂屋)",  one of the most popular ramen shops in the city.

I recommend its main restaurant, but the other day I visited its branch in a restaurant alley called "furariito (ふらりーと)" in the downtown of Asahikawa.

See!! Several kinds of restaurants are along the alley, including ramen, yakitori (grilled chicken), udon noodels, loach restaurants and so on. Looks very nice, doesn't it?

Let's enter "Hachiya (蜂屋)"!!

Asahikawa ramen remainds us of shoyu (soy sauce-flavored) ramen!
In this restaurant, we can select the hardness of noodles and thickness of the soup in any favor!

This is shoyu ramen! They use dried horse mackerel and pork bones for their broth. One of my favorite points for this ramen is black lard.
This is how to make it. Lard are heated with shaved dried horse mackerel until it becomes black. This lard has distinctive roasted flavor, and is a kind of addictive taste!

Look at the big and thin char siu! Yummy x 2!!

The noodles are straight type like this↓

If you want to try black lard a lot, please say that to the staff. It looks very black like this↓, but actually very delicious and recommendable!
I always order syoyu ramen with more black lard and harder noodles.

If you are hungry, how about a ramen set? It has rice and gyoza dumplings! Yummy x 2!!!

I love "Hachiya (蜂屋)" very much!!!
