[Mirch in Sapporo] Tasty Indian Curry and Naan
June 2nd, 2014
Mirch (ミルチ) is a long-established Indian curry restraunt founded in 1982 in Chuo ward, Sapporo city, and means "Red pepper" in Indian language. Mr. Tadaaki Tanaka and Mrs. Keiko Tanaka runs the restraunt near Hokusei Girls Junior High School (北星学園女子中学高等学校). The Indian curry restraunt is well-known for tasty curry and naan, and 60 types of various menu are served, and a lot of customers come. The wooden building designed by Hirao Architect's Atlier (平尾建築事務所) is stylish, and Sapporo Townscape Awards was given in 2003.
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Article is here
Mutton Baigan Curry
I visited here to eat Mutton Baigan Curry (マトン・ベイガン) around 13:00 on a weekday because I heard my older sister that it was tasty. The interior decoration had a warmth of woods. The restraunt have counter seats and table seats, and a lot of table seats are provided, too, so I guess that family customers also enjoy meals. I sat at a table seat, and ordered the Mutton Baigan Curry and Lassie. The prices were JPY 1496 in total.
Afer waiting for about 10 minutes, a dish of the carry, a dish of the naan, a dish of salad and a cup of the lassie were served. The curry used ferment soup for 2-3 days after an onion and a full ripeness tomato are stewed with about 30 kinds of spices for 10 hours, and is made from only vegetable juice without water. The good taste spreaded over slowly and carefully in my mouth when I had a bite. It was tasty! In addition, Indian chefs cooked a chewy naan scattered with sesame, and it had a nice texture and flavor. It was also tasty!
The Lassie made in Kimobetsu town was very rich taste, so I was a little surprised at the taste. In addition, free steamed potato that was famous potato brand stored under snow was served. They gave good service
