Sapporo Bier Garten

After a couple of days of skiing, we headed back to Sapporo to finish our trip. The Sapporo Bier Garten seemed to top the list of recommended things to do while in town, so we booked dinner reservations for two in the Ghengis Khan Hall.

Kessel Hall

This is actually a beer garden owned by Sapporo beer, but it is well known for one thing, the mutton grilled on the table ‘yakiniku’ style.

Yakiniku Pride

Being stupid gaijin, we needed a few tips from the friendly staff like taking the cube of animal fat and gratuitously coating everything before putting meat to grill. One hundred minutes of all-you-can-eat mutton and beer ran us about ¥3,700. We noticed everyone else just dumped all their fresh cookins onto the grill and went to town, so we learned quickly how to maximize our 100 minutes!

Mutton Salad

I don’t usually like lamb or smokeless grills, but damn, this was a good meal, great beer, and a cool atmosphere. It was definitely worth the 30 minutes of running while lost trying to make your reservation!

Boiler Room

Just be sure to bring some breath mints or gum for after the meal. I don’t eat mutton often, but the after taste is… not good!
