I Ate Pica-Special at Popular Soup Curry Restraunt -PICANTE Head Office in Sapporo-
August 30th, 2015
PICANTE Head Office (ピカンティ本店) is a popular soup curry restraunt in Kita ward, Sapporo city and opened a business in 2000. There is a building near Hokkaido University. It seems to be popular by Hokkaido University students. Originally PICANTE was a restraunt called VOYAGE founded in 1996. By the way, PICANTE means "spicy hot" in Portuguese. I visited the popular soup curry restraunt around 11:30 on weekdays.
The restraunt had an atomosphere such as an Indian restaurant. There were many tables, so family customers seem to enjoy. But lines may be expected at lunchtime. I sat at the table and read a menu. About how to order, Step1 is that customers choose a types of soup, Step2 is that the customers choose a types of soup curry, Step3 is that the customers choose a type of a hotness and Step 4 is that the customers choose toppings. I chose standard soup named 38okunen-no-Kaze (38億年の風) at Step1 and chose the Pica-Special (ピカスペシャル * fried soft boiled egg, maitake mushroom tempura, chicken leg and fried burdocks) soup curry at Step2 and chose the typical hotness named Chikaku-no-tobira (知覚の扉) at Step 3 and did not choose the topping at Step 4. The price was JPY 1050.
Approximately 25 minutes later, the Pica-Special soup curry was served. While waiting for the soup curry to be served, the restraunt was approximately full. As I expected, it was popular. The Pica-Special had full of ingredients and each ingredients were large! I particularly favorited the fried soft boiled egg, the maitake mushroom tempura and the fried burdocks. Rice was turmeric rice and went well with the soup. I enjoyed a spicy hot taste, too.
