10 Spots for Hokkaido's Seafood, Wagyu, and Hot Pot in Susukino, Sapporo

Susukino, Sapporo - a destination for many tourists from both Japan and abroad. This area is filled with restaurants, hotels, and shops, so there’s no better place to experience food made with local Hokkaido ingredients! Seafood dishes like sashimi and nabe (hot pot) are a given, but there is a wide array of restaurants serving other options as well, including steak, wild game, Chinese cuisine, obanzai (traditional homecooked dishes in Kyoto), and yakiniku (Japanese BBQ). Keep these spots in mind when sightseeing or dining in Sapporo with friends!

1. Kaisen Bal Nemuroya

1. Kaisen Bal Nemuroya
Kaisen Bal Nemuroya is decorated with old fashion vintage posters, making for a relaxing, casual atmosphere, and offers food made with must-try Hokkaido ingredients that are bursting with umami (Japanese savory taste). The [5-Variety Sashimi Assortment of the Day] is a splendid dish made with seafood caught in local waters that same morning, and this dish features such fantastic options as shellfish still in the shell and artfully arranged fish. [Lamb Carpaccio] is another option here. The mutton in this dish has a wonderful fattiness and pleasantly chewy texture. It comes with a house dressing and specially-made wasabi sauce - a real hit! The [Yasuda Roll], a dish named after the restaurant owner, is yet another popular choice, featuring maguro (tuna), salmon, and ikura (salmon roe) wrapped in salty rice. These delectable dishes all go well with sake and shochu (types of Japanese alcohol), cocktails, and wine.
