Hokkaido Day 4: Crab Feast

We had just taken a 3-hour bus ride from Niseko to Sapporo. Fatigue and hunger struck us like crazy … so we just walked into anything decent that was within a 50 meter radius from our hotel. And what do you think caught our attention?

A really really big King Crab!

The End.

Haha … not really. Gosh, I really don’t know what to say … I’m not crazy about crabs. The entire building belongs to this one restaurant and we dined on the 7th floor. It has some really really old (read: 1980’s) decor to it and the place smells like old moist wood with toilet-grade fresheners.

I have to be fair though … the food wasn’t bad at all … and they were probably really delicately prepared. But it felt like one of those restaurants where if you had taken a tour, they’d take you there and the tour guide would get some rebates, etc. Yeh … one of those places. If you like what you see in the photos, then this is probably the place for you.

The only thing I really like is the fried crab cake. Otherwise, all the rest just tasted like very fresh crabs with some very nice dipping sauce.

This is probably my worst entry. I have a back-log of 1 month’s worth of stuff to write! This should be my full-time job!
