My favourite Japan food. Soup curry comes with vegetables, rice, and various toppings and is a specialty in Sapporo Japan.
It's a challenge in itself and fun to visit all the soup curry establishments darted around the city.
This special Japan food is an Hokkaido dish but is beginning to get popular around Japan and so soup curry restaurants are starting to pop up in many cities around the country.
Still, Hokkaido is the best place to eat soup curry due to its rich source of fresh vegetables and ingredients. There are so many establishments in the city that its very
difficult to say which Sapporo restaurant is the best. Everyone has a different opinion and it seems that everyone living in Sapporo loves soup curry just as much as I do.
The reason why people enjoy eating soup curry is because every establishment has its own unique, home-made soup and theme therefore every restaurant is always
a new experience.
Ordering Soup Curry
The menu is usually so busy and crazy it all seems overwhelming at first so here are the basic steps to ease you in:
1. Choose your soup
2. Choose your dish
3. Choose your spice level
4. Choose your topping (opional)
5. Choose rice size
So of all the soup curry restaurants I have experienced so far(I usually try a new place a couple of times a month) here are my favourites, in no particular order, but this list will probably change next month..... or the next. This Japan food rocks!
Nishitondendori Soup Curry Honpo
best soup curry
shop in town? Possibly. A bit of a mouthful of a name. Nishitondendori is actually the name of the road where it’s located. Not very original but easily found, I guess.
The hamburger is awesome! It’s a huge handmade softball sized lump of meat. There is also the option of having cheese inside. Definitely get it with cheese inside.
Samurai Soup Curry is awesome and has four branches around Sapporo Japan. The soup here is rich and thick and you have three options to choose from: the regular soup, which is a mix of tomato and meaty stock, the tomato base soup, and the coconut base soup.
is defintitely in my top 5 favourite soup curry restaurants.
The Odori area has traditionally been underpopulated with soup curry (not curry soup) restaurants so if you feel like eating some spice,
is defintely my reccommendation. It has a very lively atmosphere and is opened planned, decorated in 70s and 80s music memorabilia and always seems to be frequented by young trendy Japanese people, especially girls.
The theme of
is an Indian/Buddhist/hippy feel and is very warm and friendly and always busy but the wait is never more than five minutes. The menu is great and they have a different soup depending on what day you go, so you have the choice of the soup of the day or the regular soup.
The soup curry here is delicious with some great herbs and good amounts of spice. The spice level ranges from 0-50 and if you want to go spicier (crazy people) it costs an extra 50yen. Even going for a low spice level such as 5 is spicier than at other establishments you have visited. I went for a level 7 and it was puuuurfect!
The great thing about Lavi Lavi is they have a 'Soup curry of the month' which I have not seen anywhere else, so far.
There are six branches around Sapporo including a
Lavi Lavi at Sapporo station.
in Kitanijuyojo is a nice little soup curry restaurant with lots of character and one my favourites. A great alternative if Voyage is too busy. There are also other branches darted around the city but I have only eaten at this one place.
Soup curry is a Japan food you must experience.
is a little soup curry shop in Odori was recommended to me by a friend and boy, I was not disappointed. It’s usually very difficult to find a good soup curry restaurant in the downtown areas of Sapporo Station and Odori.
, pronounced keesa is in my personal top three soup curry restaurants in Sapporo. In terms of soup curry quality, it is my favourite. Xysa is a sister shop of the notorious Voyage and Pecante, so it’s no surprise that the soup curry is so good.
