It is now more important than ever to carefully choose where to eat. Many restaurants are taking extra steps to prevent the spread of coronavirus. How does the new normal in Japan look like for restaurants?

5 Restaurants in Hokkaido with Extra Hygiene Measures to Fight Coronavirus
Teppan Steak Restaurant YANAGI has three themes; “Local production for local consumption,” “Developing new ideas from the past,” and “Treasuring every encounter.” They carefully select local ingredients, such as Kobu Kuro (premium black wagyu beef), Aged Potato “540,” and other vegetables and eggs from farms and producers that the owner-chef selected. While maximizing the ingredients to their full potential, the chef adds his own creative touch using the latest techniques of sous-vide and fermentation. The delicious food may be paired with a broad line-up of drinks, particularly wine. Customers are all seated at the counter, treated with hospitality while being entertained by the live teppanyaki grilling. Guests may casually enjoy the food and wine in a warm and inviting atmosphere.

2. ONIUSU Sapporo Susukino Main Branch

2. ONIUSU Sapporo Susukino Main Branch
5 Restaurants in Hokkaido with Extra Hygiene Measures to Fight Coronavirus
ONISU's interior has been modeled after Hokkaido snows. This restaurant features private rooms that can be used for ladies' get-togethers, dates, entertaining guests, and many other occasions. The restaurant serves rare Icelandic lamb shabu-shabu (sliced meat parboiled with vegetables) that is cut thinner than anywhere else in Japan ("oniusu" = "fiendishly thin"). The lamb meat is cut so finely that all it takes is a few dips in the hot soup for it to be completely cooked, and it melts the second you put it in your mouth, allowing you to basically drink it down. Guests can also elevate their meals with the restaurant's special tare (sauce) as well as eight kinds of salt and spices. Never have you tasted anything quite like the Melty Almost-Liquid Lamb Shabu-Shabu!

Located a 10-minute walk from Higashi-Sapporo Station, Sankatei is a stylish Korean and yakiniku restaurant to enjoy high-quality meat. Compared to a typical yakiniku restaurant’s interior design, Sankatei displays flowers and grasses leaving a refreshing impression. Within this atmosphere, the meat is served at its best time.

One of the must-eats of Uminoshiki is a Savory Egg Custard of Crab Tomalley, overflowing with luxurious seasonal seafood such as urchin and thornyhead rockfish. The fragrance and rareness of this dish is emphasized with very sweet Sapporo’s yellow onions and the distinctive umami-filled flavors of Nemuro crab’s miso-paste.

5. Jikiden! Haru Shouten Susukino Main branch

5. Jikiden! Haru Shouten Susukino Main branch
5 Restaurants in Hokkaido with Extra Hygiene Measures to Fight Coronavirus
Haru Shouten serves a range of Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki (savory pancakes), including Miyoshi Karamenyaki, a local dish from Hiroshima's Miyoshi City that won the 5th Hiroshima Teppan Grand Prix. Other teppanyaki dishes, including oysters and fried rice, are also on the menu. The staff here were trained by the Tamu Shoten at Miyoshi so that guests can enjoy the authentic flavors of the area. The Miyoshi Karamenyaki, with its spicy sauce topping, chewy chili noodles, and juicy cabbage is irresistibly delicious. Both the sauce and noodles are sourced from Miyoshi City. An unusual feature of this dish is that, unlike regular okonomiyaki, no flour-based batter is used. The clean and relaxed atmosphere of this restaurant is perfect for get-togethers. Takeout is also available.
