[Coffee House in Sapporo] Chicken Soup Curry with Very Light Taste and Rich Umami

Coffee House

Coffee House (こうひいはうす) is a long-established soup curry restraunt founded in 1977 in Chuo ward, Sapporo city, and faces a streetcar track, and is near streetcar station Ropeway-Iriguchi stop at the foot of Mt. Moiwayama. Mr. Makoto Tanaka (田中 誠) is a restraunt owner. As its name suggests, the restraunt is also well-known for serving tasty coffee, and the interior decoration is like a cafe bar. A record player that gives the impression that it might start sounding at any moment. The restraunt is not large, but counter seats and table seats are provided, so I guess that family customers also enjoy meals.

Mt. Moiwa

Mt. Moiwa (藻岩山) is a mountain of 531 m altitude in Minami ward, Sapporo city, and was named after "A place to watch by always going up" in Ainu language, and is well-known for having an observation deck and a ski resort. It is relatively close to the downtown of the Sapporo, and is a popular sightseeing spot with a good night view. The night view from the Mt. Moiwa is one of the 3 best night views in Hokkaido along with the night view from Mt. Hakodate (函館山) and the night view from Mt. Tengu (天狗山), and the Sapporo has been chosen as one of the 3 best new night views in Japan together with Nagasaki (長崎) and Kobe (神戸) since 2015, so more tourists visit here. About 900,000 people come at present. Admission free. A parking lot is free of charge. Read More

SAPPORO

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. Read More

Soup Curry

Soup curry (スープカレー) is a dish to eat rice into soup using various spices with vegetables and meats. Only curry and rice was once a curry dish in Japan, but the soup curry has become popular for these 20 years. Ajanta (アジャンタ) and Magic Spice (マジックスパイス) in Sapporo sparked the soup curry boom, and it is said that the origin of the soup curry is medicinal cooking curry (薬膳カリィ) cooked by Mr. Muneo Tatsujiri (辰尻 宗男), ex-restraunt owner of the Ajanta, and a new genre of a curry dish has been established. After that, Mr. Taizan Shimomura (下村 泰山), a restraunt owner of the Magic Spice, named the curry dish as the soup curry, and it has widely spread. Read More

Soup Curry

I visited here in just opening hour on a weekday. I sat a counter seat, and a way of ordering on a menu was shown on a counter. That is as follows. Customers should choose a type of soup from 2 types of the soup "smooth soup (さらさらスープ)" or "stewed soup (とろみスープ)". Then, they should choose a type of hotness from 10 types of the hotness. Finally they should choose a type of soup curry. I chose the Smooth soup, 1 hotness and Chicken Soup Curry (チキンスープカレー). The price was JPY 800.

It Looks One Dish of Course Dish

I chatted to the restaurant owner for about 10 minutes before serving a dish. The soup was an additive-free, and was simmered over low heat for 20 hours until bones of ingredients melted away. It was very light taste, and tasted slightly salty, and umami was rich. This soup was unsuitable taste for person preferring thick taste. But it was the most suitable soup for person preferring the light taste. The appearance resembled soup of a course dish. I liked the light taste, so it was very tasty!

It Serves with Pickle

The rice was turmeric rice made of Yumepirika (ゆめぴりか * It is said that this rice is most tasty in Hokkaido). I could see that the restaurant owner was particular about the rice. Although they take much labor and time, they serve the soup curry for almost lowest price in the soup curry restraunts in the Sapporo. He said "I can not raise the price for regular customers because I has opened the restaurant for 28 years". He also added "The restaurant is not crowded except Saturday and Sunday".
