by Ryu_C@RakuRakuJP

Features of Sapporo Ramen

If you like to try different kinds of ramen, in addition to eating Afuri Afuri Ramen in Shinjuku District of Tokyo and Dashengxuan in Ikebukuro District, there is actually another place where ramen is worth trying, and that is in Sapporo. Hand-Pulled Noodle.

Why are ramen in Sapporo highly recommended?

That's because the ramen that you can eat in Sapporo is not something you can easily find in Tokyo, especially the thick buttery aroma paired with a unique miso soup base, which is similar to the tonkotsu that is common in Tokyo. Totally different taste. And because Sapporo is located in a relatively cold place in Hokkaido, especially in an environment where the temperature is below zero for a long time in winter, eating a bowl of ramen with heavy oil will not only prevent you from getting fat easily, but also provide enough energy for your trip. You can set off to different attractions!

So if you are traveling to Hokkaido for the first time, in addition to trying Sapporo's three major crab dishes, seafood bowls, and Genghis Khan roasted pork, you can also arrange a 2-day lunch to experience different Sapporo ramen, so that you You can compare the characteristics of different Sapporo ramen in depth, as well as the biggest difference with Tokyo ramen and Fukuoka ramen.

Recommended time to enjoy ramen in Sapporo

Although there is no so-called "best time to enjoy Sapporo ramen" under normal circumstances, but also because there are really many delicious foods worth experiencing in Sapporo, and many of them are only open at night, so they are moreIt is recommended to visit different ramen shops during lunch, such as 11:00-15:00. In this way, precious dinner time can be reserved for some high-end restaurants that only open at night, such as the three big crab feasts, etc.

Another consideration is that many ramen shops are used to closing after selling out their ingredients, so as long as you visit the ramen shop when it opens every day, you can guarantee that you will not make a trip in vain , Wasted precious travel time.

Two places that gather a large number of Sapporo ramen

Ramen shops in Sapporo generally gather in two main locations, namely the Hokkaido ramen dojo "Hokkaido ラーメン Dojo" at New Chitose Airport, and the Sapporo Ramen Republic "Sapporo ら~めん Republic", two ramen areas in the form of food centers. Centered around Odori Station and Susukino Station, each ramen shop is a "ramen battle zone" that operates independently.

In other words, no matter which area of Sapporo you are in, you can try several different ramen shops and different flavors of ramen in one go. Among the many ramen shops, the ones worth trying are Yizian, Yigen, Nianya Saimi, Sumire, and Baolong. In addition to being a famous ramen shop that takes time every time, it is also because each ramen shop represents one of the flavors of Sapporo ramen, allowing you to experience the different essences of Sapporo ramen!

New Chitose Airport Hokkaido Ramen Dojo

In Hokkaido Ramen Dojo next to New Chitose Airport, there are a total of more than ten different styles of ramen shops, such as the very popular shrimp soup base ramen "Ichigen Ramen", Asahikawa Ramen Meiguangxuan "Asahikawa ラーメン Meiguangxuan", and Or the high-concentration miso-based Disciple Curramen "Disciple Curramen" and so on.

Also because the ramen shops at the Hokkaido Ramen Dojo at the New Chitose Airport have to deal with the massive crowds, their business hours are generally a bit longer than those in Sapporo, and many of them open at 09:00 until 21 :00. So don't worry about the ramen being sold out because you visit too late.

Although there are more than ten ramen shops in the Hokkaido ramen dojo, it seems that there will be many choices, and you probably don't need to spend a long time queuing to eat. But in fact, the popularity of each ramen shop is different. It is possible that one shop is full of customers, but the other one is still trying to sell. The difference is most obvious during lunch time.

Especially before the opening of "Ichigen Ramen" around 11:00, you will often see that other ramen shops do not have many customers, but there are more than 50 people waiting in line at the entrance of "Ichigen Ramen" instead of walking Had ramen at other ramen shops in the past. Of course, it is because the shrimp soup ramen of "Ichigen Ramen" is not easy to find in other places, so everyone will be willing to spend time queuing.

Of course, there will be some comments saying that the quality level of one or two ramen shops is very average, but to be fair, the taste variation among Sapporo ramen is actually very large, and no one will eat all the ramen shops. Only give an evaluation. So when choosing a ramen shop, you can decide which one is the most worth trying according to your own taste and the queue situation at that time.

JR Sapporo Station Sapporo Ramen Republic

The Sapporo Ramen Republic, which is located on the 10/F of the ESTA shopping mall at JR Sapporo Station, is another "ramen battle zone" where many ramen shops gather.

Although there are about 8-10 ramen shops in the "Sapporoら~めん Republic" on the ESTA side, some brands will also have branches in the "Hokkaido Ramen Dojo" at New Chitose Airport, such as SORA Ramen "らーめんそら", Meiguangxuan ramen "Asahikawa ラーメン Meiguangxuan", Shirakaba Villa ramen "麺场Shirakaba Sansou" and so on.

If you always want to taste different styles of ramen, you need to plan more when planning your itinerary. Decide which ramen shop you want to eat at "Sapporo Ramen Republic" and then eat a ramen shop at New Chitose Airport ,, so you don’t have to worry about eating the same ramen style repeatedly.

Odori and Susukino station ramen battle zone

I believe that most people will arrange a few days to go shopping in the shopping streets near Odori Station and Susukino Station when they come to Sapporo, and try different food in Sapporo. Odori Station and Susukino Station are the same places where different ramen shops gather, so you can spend about an hour at different ramen shops to try different ramen at the same time while shopping, take a break along the way, and then set off.

There are really a lot of ramen shops near Odori Station and Susukino Station. Just open the map and you can find more than a dozen ramen shops of different styles. It seems that you can’t eat all you want. I don’t know which one is the best. It's worth trying.

However, among these ramen shops, there are actually a few that are worth spending time queuing up, that is, Yigen Ramen, Yizian, Baolong, Menya Caisue, and Ramen Sumireすみれ. Basically, as long as you can arrange one or two places in the middle of the itinerary, these ramen shops are guaranteed not to make you regret it!

ichigen ramen えびそば ichigen

The ramen of Ichigen Ramen is mainly based on thick shrimp soup, with three different flavors of salt, miso, and soy sauce, and then you can choose whether the thickness of the shrimp soup is light, medium, or strong. There are 9 different flavors in total. match. In addition, you can choose thin noodles and too noodles for the above, and basically you can choose your own shrimp soup ramen.

In addition, the rice balls and dumplings at Yihuan Ramen are very famous. It is recommended to order one more rice ball and one dumpling for each item when ordering, so that you can mix the rice balls with the shrimp soup after eating the ramen. , perfectly absorb the umami of the shrimp soup.

The most worth eating of Yigen Ramen is the shrimp miso ramen "そのままえびみそ" (click to enlarge the picture)

Of course, a delicious ramen shop also means that there is a possibility of queuing up, and because there are only 16 seats in the main shop of Ichigen Ramen, so whether it is on weekdays or holidays, you need to spend a little time during lunch and dinner time. Time to line up. Fortunately, the opening hours of Ichigen Ramen's main shop are longer than that of ordinary ramen shops, so even at 23:00 in the middle of the night, you can still eat their ramen.

One grain hermitage ラーメン Sapporo one grain hermitage

Ramen with special scrambled eggs on top of miso soup. I believe this kind of ramen will not be a common ramen combination, but you can find it in this "Ichikoan" ramen shop that has been listed as a Michelin-recommended restaurant.

Ichigoan’s ramen is not the traditional tonkotsu style, or the rich miso flavor of Sapporo, but the kind of ramen that is completely self-contained. Because the side dish of scrambled eggs alone does not appear in traditional ramen, plus different spices, garlic, green onions, etc., as well as a lot of pork meat, you can get a perfect bowl of ramen. In addition, as long as you add butter and corn, if you put the corn in the ramen before eating the ramen, the taste of the whole bowl of ramen will become stronger and richer.

Perhaps after eating this bowl of ramen, you will find out why you don’t seem to have eaten "weiyu", which is the so-called "hot spring jade"? That's because the Yuanqi miso ramen "元気のでるみそラーメン" DX in the ramen shop of "Ichigoan" will make you feel so satisfied, so you forget that you need to add hot spring jade.

If you want to taste ramen that can be served with scrambled eggs, you can probably only go to ラーメン Sapporo Ichigoan (click to enlarge the picture)

Since ラーメン Sapporo Ichikoan is a ramen restaurant recommended by Michelin, of course it means that it takes time to queue up to get it. However, the store also thoughtfully prepared a Live Camera outside the store for you who plan to eat ramen, so that you can know how many people are queuing at that time, and then arrange a suitable itinerary to eat their ramen.

However, it is also worth noting that there are very few seats at Yizian Ramen, about 20 seats. So if you really want to try their ramen, it is highly recommended to queue up more than 30 minutes in advance, so that the itinerary will be easier and smoother.

In terms of the combination of ramen and scrambled eggs, ラーメン Sapporo Ichikoan is probably the first (Video: ラーメン Sapporo Ichikoan)

Baolong ラーメン Baolong

Compared with "えびそば一幻" and "ラーメン Sapporo Ichigoan", Baolong is like a "grandpa level" time-honored ramen. To put it simply, the soup base is thick and simple, but it has an indescribable appeal. The stores on the side of the main store in Sapporo will have a sense of history. You can find the signatures of many celebrities in every corner of the main store, which is a major feature of Ramen Baolong.

However, Baolong's ramen is more Chinese-style. Whether it is soup or noodle quality, it will be slightly different from the experience of Yihuan and Yiliian. Relatively speaking, Baolong will be more suitable for some tourists who like traditional flavored ramen. In the main store, you can get the experience you want no matter whether it is the decoration or the ramen itself.

Another feature of Baolong Ramen Headquarters is that its location is just atNear the Sapporo Snow Festival Susukino venue, If you happen to need a break in the middle of visiting the Snow Festival, walk over to Baolong and eat a bowl of ramen before continuing to participate in the Sapporo Snow Festival, so you don’t have to be afraid of the colder weather!

Average number of seats: 29 seats

SUMIRE ramen Sapporo no miso ramen sumire

Like Baolong Ramen, SUMIRE Ramen is another ramen shop with many years of history in Sapporo, and it is a ramen shop with many people waiting in line every day. Basically, as long as you walk from Susukino Station to Odori Station at night, you will easily find a lot of people queuing along the long and narrow stairs of the building, and what they are waiting for is SUMIRE's ramen.

The characteristics of SUMIRE ramen are mainly based on thick soup base and simple ingredients, so there will not be different styles of ingredients on the ramen like "Yizian Ramen", but purely noodle quality and soup. Step into their ramen world.

However, one thing to note is that the Susukino branch of SUMIRE Ramen is only open at night, and there are relatively few seats. So if you want to experience their ramen during lunch time, you must go to their main store in Nakanoshima, and this store is open all year round and has a lot of seats, so you may not need to spend too much time queuing to get it.

Sales Information of SUMIRE Ramen

Business hours: 17:30 – 00:30
Average number of seats: 24 seats
Number of seats in the waiting room: No, you need to queue outside the door
Electronic payment: no
Address: 〒060-0063 2F, ピクシスビル 2F, South 3-jo Nishi 3-chome, Chuo-ku, Sapporo City

Menya Ayami Menyasaimi 

The last ramen shop worth recommending is Menya Saimi "麺屋雅史 Menya Saimi". The biggest difference between this ramen shop and the ones just now is that it only has a small shop that can only serve 18 customers at a time, and the location of Menya Saimi is not near JR Sapporo Station, Odori Station, or Susukino Station , but at the "Subway Mien Station", which is a little distance from JR Sapporo Station, and it takes 4 minutes to walk to it after getting off.

However, it does not affect other people's love for Ayami Miya, and there are still long queues of people every day.

The characteristic of Menya Ayami is that the owners are all inherited from SUMIRE's ramen skills, so you will find that there are some similarities between the two ramen shops. For example, the design of the whole bowl of ramen, the choice of soup and miso, as well as the design and decoration of the store will find some common points.

Therefore, if you want to eat the most styles of Sapporo ramen in a limited opportunity, you can also choose between Minya Ayami and SUMIRE ramen to eat, and then leave the other ramen limit for Ichigen and Ichian. ramen shop. Otherwise, you can also try to compare the difference between Shimoya Saimi and SUMIRE ramen. After all, the senior and the junior are on similar ramen, which one can bring you a new feeling.

And for you who plan to go to Menya Saimi, you must pay more attention to their business hours. Perhaps the scale of Menya Saimi is relatively small, so the business hours are not as long as SUMIRE ramen.

They usually close on Mondays of every week, and only open for lunch on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Basically, it is only open for lunch and dinner at the same time from Thursday to Sunday, but even if it is "open all day", the actual opening time of the whole day does not exceed 7 hours, so if you really want to try noodles Ya Saimi's ramen, when planning your itinerary, you must pay more attention to their business hours and the required transportation time.

Menya Saimi's business information

Business hours: 11:00 – 15:15 / 17:00 – 19:30 (closed early on certain days)
Regular holiday: Monday
Average number of seats: 18 seats

As I said at the beginning, there are not only a lot of ramen shops in Sapporo, but also a lot of different forms of food, so for a Hokkaido trip that only lasts a few days, arrange 1-2 opportunities to try different The Sapporo ramen is pretty much the limit. After all, Sapporo is not as convenient as Tokyo, and you can’t just go there whenever you want, so it’s better to reserve the food experience limit for some more advanced and worthwhile restaurants, as well as some dishes that only appear in Hokkaido.

In addition to ramen, Sapporo also has Hokkaido's three major crabs, Genghis Khan roast meat, soup curry and other specialties that are worth trying.Hokkaido Travel Information ClassificationYou can find it there.
