Sapporo soup curry: it pleases us

Sapporo’s famous soup curry did not disappoint us at Nishitondendori Soup Curry Honpo. Halfway between a soup and a stew and served with rice, it’s a kind of dish that could only have been perfected in a snowy, cold climate.

Pictured here is the Kakuni Soup Curry, with an addition of coconut milk to the pork broth based soup curry, and a large rice topped with “carbonara” (a poached egg and diced grilled pancetta) and a cheese-stuffed hamburger ball (described on the menu as “chizu in hambaagaa raisu on”). Oh, and spice level 6 out of 10. (If you select 10 spice level, you have to get permission from the shop to proceed.)

You order from the menu in 5 steps. Step 1: select the type of meat — hamburger, pork belly (kakuni), chicken leg, etc. Step 2: select the type of soup base — chicken, pork, coconut, etc. Step 3: pick the spice level. Step 4: pick the amount of rice. Final step: select and add ons — rice toppings, hamburger ball, veggies, etc.

It is hard to say which there were more of: calories or deliciousness.
