Sapporo Signature Dish

Sapporo Signature Dish

While many people have heard of Japanese Curry, Japanese Soup Curry is a popular Sapporo version of the rice and sauce dish. First created in a Sapporo cafe during the 70's, Soup Curry is a delicious dish perfect for the cold days in Hokkaido. Packed with nutritious ingredients and mouthwatering spices, this curry dish is an adaptation of curry inspired by Chinese & Korean medical soup and curry spices from India, Thailand, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka. Becoming a signature dish of Sapporo, soup curry is filled with fresh ingredients local to Hokkaido. Fans of Japanese cuisine are sure to notice the flavors from other countries that helped inspire this popular winter time Japanese meal.

Typically, soup curry includes: curry soup-base, chicken leg, deep fried veggies like potatoes, carrots, eggplant, bell peppers, kabocha (Japanese Pumpkin), corn, peas, and a hard boiled egg. This hearty meal is the perfect way to warm up during the chilly Hokkaido winters. While curry is usually enjoyed over a bed of rice or with pasta, soup curry serves the rice on a separate plate to be dipped into the curry. As unusual as it may seem, soup curry has grown to become a Sapporo specialty and can be found at many restaurants on the northern island.

One of the most popular places to enjoy soup curry is along the waters of Otaru Canal. As one of the earliest ports open for trade in Japan, Otaru is filled with restaurants offering soup curry with ingredients local to Hokkaido and spices from the countries that inspired the Japanese dish. With the gaslights illuminating the streets, soup curry caps off the perfect Japan winter holiday in Hokkaido's beautiful port district.
