Asahikawa-Ramen

Copyright: GURUTABI, 梅光軒 本店

„Asahikawa-Ramen“ gilt als eine der drei Hauptvarianten von Ramen auf Hokkaido. Die Suppe wird aus Meeresfrüchtebrühe (aus Seetang und Anchovis) und Fleischbrühe (aus Schweineknochen und Huhn) hergestellt und mit Sojasauce abgeschmeckt. Der würzige Geschmack der Suppe passt gut zu den gewellten Nudeln. Damit die Ramen im kalten Klima von Hokkaido nicht zu schnell abkühlen, wird Schmalz auf die Suppe gegeben, sodass sich eine Fettschicht bildet. In den letzten Jahren wurden zahlreiche weitere salzige und mit Miso-Paste gewürzte Variationen kreiert, sodass es heute ein breites Angebot an Asahikawa-Ramen-Varianten gibt.
