1. Yakiniku LABO.

This restaurant in the center of Sapporo's commercial Susukino district is conveniently located just three minutes on foot from Hosui Susukino Station.

At this restaurant, which is run as a casual yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) restaurant, the owner hand-picks quality meats such as brand-name beef from Hokkaido and dry-aged meats to serve them at reasonable prices in an informal setting. The most popular item is the [Uma Sagari] hanging tender, maintaining its position as the number one item on the menu above other famous items, such as [Hamidesouna Loin] and [Dry-Aged Lean Thigh].

14. Ram

Ram is a restaurant that has delighted Hokkaido locals for over 20 years with lamb procured from Iceland. Icelandic lamb is not as readily available as lamb from New Zealand, but it is significantly softer and has hardly any odor. Perhaps because they are fed with moss in the extreme north, Icelandic sheep are unable to put too much weight on, so their meat is low in fat content and cholesterol yet high in vitamins and iron. Naturally, Genghis Khan made with Icelandic lamb offers a completely different experience from your typical Genghis Khan. Yet, it retains the umami of Genghis Khan that goes well with vegetables and rice and will stimulate your appetite.

And for only 3,680 JPY you can have an all-you-can-eat and drink course of meat, vegetables, rice, and miso soup.

Genghis Khan Kita Ebisu is a Genghis Khan restaurant just a minute away from the nearest station.

17. Nozawa

At Nozawa, the shoulder meat of a less-than-one-year-old lamb is grilled in a special, original pot. Genghis Khan dishes can generally be divided into those with meat that has been marinated in a sauce and those with meat that is dipped in the sauce after grilling - and the Genghis Khan served here is the latter. The only meat that's served here is raw lamb, and its exquisite lean meat is thick and cut beautifully. While many Genghis Khan sauces are fruity with clearly defined either sweet or acidic flavors, the sauce at this restaurant is shoyu-based, which gives it a flavor of Japanese dashi (broth) that lacks any sweetness. The sauce itself has an almost indistinctive taste, but when the mild-flavored lamb meat is dipped in it, it clearly enhances the taste of the meat. Although raw lamb is the only meat on the standard menu, a steak of Yezo sika (Yezo deer) that the owner hunts himself may be available if you are lucky.

They also have ji-zake (Japanese local alcohol), so you can enjoy a fantastic time with Genghis Khan and great alcoholic beverages.
