Many People Line Up to Eat Tasty Mongolian Mutton Barbecue -Daruma Head Office in Sapporo-
June 10th, 2015
Daruma Head Office (だるま本店) is a popular mongolian mutton barbecue restraunt in Susukino, Chuo ward, Sapporo city and was founded in 1954. The mongolian mutton barbecue restaurant begin at 17:00. 15 people lined up before opening hour. I did not think that Daruma was crowded like this although it was weekdays. The restraunt was small and there were only counter seats. The interior decoration had an atmosphere such as the Showa period.
When I sat at the counter seat, one dish of mutton and vegetables (onion and green onion are served free of charge) were served without ordering automatically. Because a waitress asked me what you would drink, I ordered a draft beer. The price is JPY 500. By the way, the mutton is JPY 798 a plate. I put muttons on a pan for Jingisukan barbecue and those were grilled for approximately 5 minutes.
The customers can add a garlic paste and a mixture of ground pepper to specially made sauce as they like, it was very tasty when the mutton was eaten with the sauce. It was in particular tasty after my first bite. There was the visitor next to me could not help making a sound "Yummy!". The mutton was very tender, and medium-rare mutton was just tasty. As for the onion, sweetness was good.
Anyway I ate 3 dishes of the mutton. Person who was very knowledgeable about daruma seemed to mix the left sauce with a roasted green tea and to drink it, and I followed him and drank it. Sourness was tasty. The payment was JPY 3,299. When I left the restraunt around 17:30, 6 people lined up at an entrance. Daruma was very popular after all.
