- Ramen Santouka
This day afternoon in Asahikawa, I ate famous ramen which called Santouka, and it was the original store! Santouka’s founder Hitoshi Hatanaka, one day after watched performance, stopped at a ramen shop for a quick meal with his family.
Unsatisfied with the taste of the shop’s ramen, Hatanaka declared that the next time he would be the one making ramen for his family.
At the beginning, there were only one flavor on the menu — Salt Ramen and only had 9 seats.
The original store is near the JR station, only take about 5 minutes by walk.
Even until now the store become bigger, it still be too small to accommodate many guests.
Now Santouka has more than one flavor on its menu. I ordered miso ramen and it tastes dense, but a little bit salty. Maybe I should try the specialty slat ramen next time!
