If you ever find yourself in Sapporo, make sure you try their soup curry. Along with ramen and jingisukan (a grilled mutton dish), it’s one of Sapporo’s signature gourmet meals, and restaurants serving it in this city take pride in their richly flavored broth.

Once you’re done with your meal, however, don’t forget to order a cold refreshing parfait for dessert. If that sounds a little odd to you, remember that this is Japan. While it’s common for people to cap the night off with a few drinks or even ramen, a new trend called shime parfait is gaining popularity. This is where people opt for a cold refreshing dessert before they call it a night. In fact, there’s even an association called Sapporo Shime Parfait.

ouchi, a popular restaurant located at Sapporo’s central district, is one of the places where you can enjoy both of soup curry and shime parfait. This restaurant is popular among tourists and regular customers because of their gourmet specialties and ambiance.

They first opened in 2002 as a restaurant where customers enjoy soup curry and European home-cooked dishes. They make their special soup curry by simmering chicken stock, pork bones, and vegetables together, and sprinkling more than 20 kinds of spices to finish. The soup curry’s spicy and rich flavor is immensely popular among food connoisseurs.

The restaurant is also a member of the Sapporo Shime Parfait Association, and sells five kinds of parfaits, such as one with seasonal fruits and a mini parfait.

Shiratama Kinako Creme no Wafu Parfait . Add ¥300 to set with a drink

One of the most popular parfaits in this restaurant is
Shiratama Kinako Creme no Wafu Parfait (¥650). It consists of matcha and vanilla ice, mochi balls sprinkled with roasted soybean flour, red bean paste, dark molasses, and topped with whipped cream. Even if you’re already full, it wouldn’t hurt to try it because of its mellow and contains just the right amount of sweetness.

Chicken to Juroku-syu no Yasai Soup Curry

The restaurant takes pride on their soup curry, which they create using their own grown vegetables, Yesso scallop, and pork meat from Furano City. For those who would like to eat plenty of vegetables, we recommend
Chicken to Juroku-syu no Yasai (16 kinds of vegetables) Soup Curry (¥1,480). The 16 kinds of vegetables are eggplant, carrots, green pepper, Chinese yam, broccoli, paprika, pumpkin, Hokkaido potato, okra, hen of the woods, lotus root, shimeji mushroom, asparagus, common bean, king oyster, and tomato. 

You can also choose among three types of soup: sarasara (smooth), torotoro (onion based thick soup), and ebi (shrimp stock).

“Ouchi” means “one’s home” in Japanese. True to its name, this restaurant tries its best to create a comfortable space.
