Last time I went to Hokkaido I tried crab sashimi for the first time and I was shocked how tasty it was! But you never see crab sashimi in Tokyo – the crab has to be super fresh you see. So this time since we were half giving up uni, we went hunting crab sashimi in Otaru. We went to a different sushi place first, my friend saw the show case and hinted to me “Let’s get out”. ^^;; So we were loitering along the “sushi restaurants street” and chose this place when it got late(lunch time) and we were really hungry. The uni was really bad, as expected, I wonder why we insisted ordering it…But oh my, the crab sashimi was really good~!! Better than the first time I had it. We tried tarabagani, the same kind of crab we had the previous night but this time raw, it was so good that I ordered one more later and the chef was so nice he gave me a big big piece. We also tried a different crab called zuwaigani, which was a little bitter but nice too. There was little piece of rice underneath the crab. We were very satisfied and went to have ice-cream again in 北菓楼 – which was definitely the best ice-cream I have ever had! So rich! I bought a lot of souvenirs(cookies, cakes etc.) in this shop too. The BBQ is Genghis Kan(成吉思汗）, mutton barbecue, I have had it in Tokyo but it is more popular in Hokkaido. The lamb meat is not flavoured so it is just plain grill and dip sauce, but the meat is very tender and tasty and both my friend and I ordered a second round. The shop is super famous, always a long queue, but miraculously we went at the right moment that we didn’t have to queue. We shared the kimchi and the rice and were really stuffed. About 2000yen per person.
