Ebisoba Ichigen at Hokkaido Ramen Dojo
If you come to the international terminal in New Chitose airport, you need to move to the domestic terminal which has the shopping zone and restaurants area. Reaching 3rd floor of the domestic terminal, you could find “Hokkaido Ramen Dojo” many popular ramen shops are gathering. “Ebisoba Ichigen” is just standing very close to the entrance of it.
By the way, the characteristic of ramen by “Ebisoba Ichigen” is the noodle soup made of prawn just as the shop name implies. (Ebi in Japanese means prawn). You can select a favorite taste from three kinds, Ebi shoyu, Ebi miso and Ebi shio, and also choose the thickness of each soup such as Sonomama, a standard prawn soup, Hodohodo, a prawn + pork based Tonkotsu soup and Ajiwai which is much thicker taste of Hodohodo. The shop has the menu in English, Chinese and Korean, so it is easy to order any ramen for people who don’t understand Japanese too.
Ramen offered by “Ebisoba Ichigen” may not like traditional Hokkaido Ramen, but once you try it, may be addicted it like me! Unfortunately, the chance we can eat it is only on the occasion we stay in Japan because “Ebisoba Ichigen” has no overseas branches, however it offers packed ramen which enable us to get at the supermarkets in Sapporo. If you buy it, can also try the authentic Ebisoba Ichigen Ramn at your own country. I actually get some when I go back to Sapporo and bring them back to China where I currently live in. The process to cook this packed ramen is different from ordinary instant noodle as noodle and soup need to be boiled separately, and noodle type used is fresh type rather than dry type like normal instant noodle. It takes more time consumed to prepare a bawl of ramen than normal instant noodle, but the taste is much close to the one we try at the actual ramen shop.
I also recommend the packed ramen as a souvenir for friends who especially like Japanese food.
