Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan
When you think of Asahi, you probably think of Japanese beers but they also have restaurants named Asahi Beer Community Halls around Japan. It is not so much about drinking beer at these restaurants but more of eating meat either by grill or shabu shabu. Our dinner on the first day with the Chan Brothers’ Hokkaido Passion tour was at the Asahi Beer Community Hall Yōyōtei (アサヒビール園 羊々亭) at in the Susukino district of Sapporo, just opposite the iconic Nikka Building.
The thinly sliced pork slices here are really tender and doesn’t have any of that strong “meaty” aftertaste. It is best enjoyed with vegetables and condiments such as their goma or ponzu sauce. Dinner’s not bad in short.
Outside, political parties are trying to pull some votes for the 2013 Upper House Elections.
