I actually did not know this until I visited Sapporo recently, but Sapporo is well known for their large variety of soup curries. Soup curry is, as its name suggests, a soup based curry that usually includes large ingredients. I would like to introduce to you the 5 soup curry restaurants that you should check out if you are in Sapporo.
Soup Curry Treasure offers three different types of soup bases: original, bouillabaisse and sesame & soy. This restaurant also has lassi which is a sweet, yogurt-based drink that is usually ordered alongside curry to tone down the spice. Make sure to go early because this restaurant constantly has a line in front of it!
The soup curry at Curry Di.SAVoY features a lot of vegetables and fruit and is made from stewing beef bones and chicken broth. The soup ends up as something that does not have any excessive oil and is extremely healthy.
Picante serves five types of soups including the daily special and you can enjoy the different soup curries that are made from a select combination of spices. This restaurant is popular with women because of the healthy types of curry.
The special thing about Curry Shop S is how they use traditional Japanese soup stock. All of the vegetables in the curry are freshly made in Hokkaido. With the counter seats facing walls, Curry Shop S is great for customers who are eating alone.
The name Ouchi comes from the Japanese word “home” and you can enjoy the curry at Ouchi in a comfortable environment just like at “home”. There are two types of soups available at Ouchi and each one has a specific combination of spices that go well with each soup. They also have dishes on the menu other than soup curry, along with many desserts and other lunch menus.
I hope you found at least one of the soup curry restaurants in this list that suits your taste. You should definitely try one of these restaurants if you are in the Sapporo area!
