大心 - 札幌らーめん共和国
Not a lot of time in Sapporo? Want to eat good ramen? Can't decipher this map?
Well don't worry, the 10th floor of the main railway station houses the 札幌らーめん共和国, Sapporo Ramen Kyowakoku. The Republic of Ramen? Nice! At the time of writing, you can choose from four Sapporo shops, and one from Hakodate, Asahikawa, Ebetsu, and Tokyo.
I picked Daishi simply because there was a fat kid stuffing his face. I should have done my research! Like I said, not a lot of time.
And the ramen? How was this miso blend?
Meh. Strictly average. A little too oily, though that is a common theme with Sapporo ramen. Even though I didn't have time to try it, Shirakabasanso (白樺山荘) looked like the winner of the group.
Next time! Half size bowls are available, so a normal ramen slurper with a healthy appetite could easily eat at half the shops.
