Another food NOT-to-be-missed while in Sapporo is this BBQ lamb or genghis khan. One of the famous chain of grilled lamb restaurant is called Daruma shop. We went to the closer one to our hotel on that night, which was Daruma 6.4.
The direction on google is quite confusing, but yet we didn't give up. I wasn't sure what street it led us but we ended up in the wrong side, so we had to walk along the alley all the way to the other corner and found this shop. It was nearly 7 pm and the shop packed with so many hungry customers.
The seats are pretty squishy but there are locker spaces to keep your coat and bag. Which is good otherwise, my coat will end up smelling so smoky. There are a few different types of lamb meat to order and some condiments as well. For 2 person, we got one griller and promptly served with some onions and a bit of pork oil chunk. The order actually came out quick. And we were ready for cooking and eating.
I heard some bloggers or reviews complained about how expensive and small portion of the serving were but honestly I didn't feel any of those. They have a good quality of meat that tender and juicy, not gamey at all, the price wise is pretty reasonable. That's why this shop is always busy especially with locals.
