Recommendation by Wabisavi
Hidden within a shopping mall, sitting at the end of a bookstore, small and unassuming with some 10 counter seats, Morito Omiya’s 𝗔𝗷𝗶 𝗡𝗼 𝗦𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗲𝗶 is the originator of the iconic 𝗦𝗮𝗽𝗽𝗼𝗿𝗼 𝗠𝗶𝘀𝗼 𝗥𝗮𝗺𝗲𝗻. For 70 years, it has been serving up this nutritious fare, the traditional flavour (butter-free and devoid of any fad twists) a hit with the locals, who return again and again to savour the taste they grew up with. After a long day of sightseeing in cold and windy Sapporo, the rich hot soup is a joy to the senses. The secret of this soul-warming broth lies, of course, in its miso paste base. While miso does not create a thick or fatty broth the way 𝘵𝘰𝘯𝘬𝘰𝘵𝘴𝘶 does, it’s extremely rich in umami, a flavour that slowly spreads in your mouth, getting tastier and tastier with every spoonful. The thick curly noodles, specially created together with Nishiyama Seimen to best complement this dish, are cooked to perfection. A generous portion of vegetables and minced meat completes the dish. This ramen does not come with chashu, and the owner recommended to not add it as a topping. Chili paste is available for those who want an extra rush of heat.
