Default Japan Tour: Genghis Khan Jingisukan BBQ


No trip to Sapporo in Hokkaido would be complete without trying the signature dish of Jingisukan - a grilled mutton barbecue prepared on a hot plate at your table.

Jingisukan can be sampled at a number of places throughout Sapporo including the Sapporo Beer Garden (aka Sapporo Bier Garten), the two branches of the Kirin Beer Garden, the main one (pictured below) near Nakajima Subway Station (Tel: 011 533 3000) and the new branch near Susukino (Tel: 011 533 7677) as well as in various specialist Jingisukan restaurants in Susukino and at Sapporo Station. Many places offer tabehodai (all-you-can-eat) deals.

Jingisukan is no-nonsense fare, BBQ mutton with onions and cabbage washed down with beer. Diners are offered a plastic apron to keep the fat and "strong" smell of the cooking lamb off your clothes. Lamb is generally not much eaten in Japan due to its perceived unpleasant odor.

Foodies may also want to visit Sapporo Central Food Market for fresh sushi and Sapporo Ramen Kyowakoku and Ramen Yokocho for Hokkaido ramen.
