After church on Sunday, Laura and I headed to the theater district to get dinner. Originally, we wanted to go to Sake Bar Hagi, but the wait was close to 30 minutes and it was pouring outside, so we decided to head next door to Sapporo. Sapporo is really run down, but I’ve been there in the past for ramen and I think it’s pretty decent. I went with the special Sapporo ramen:
The special Sapporo ramen comes with two types of pork (sliced and minced), corn, fish cakes, and spinach. The broth is okay, but was more salty than anything. The portion was gigantic and they are definitely really generous with the pork. The ramen was very chewy and on par with a place like Ramen Setagaya.
Laura went with the vegetarian ramen in a miso broth:
I liked her broth more because there was actually miso flavoring (although we couldn’t determine for sure if our broths were the same…I’m pretty sure hers was miso-flavored and mine was salt-flavored).
Sapporo isn’t bad for a quick bite to eat, especially since it’s difficult to find good restaurants around Times Square. In the future, I think I’d rather wait for Sake Bar Hagi (especially since they take your phone number down and will call you when your table is ready!)
