So our host still is anxious about our food preference, so he brought us to another Hotel for our dinner for our second night in Hokkaido. He ordered steak for everyone! :-) I'm not a steak fan actually, but I just loved the steak served to us that time. :-) Also, they served us this dried puffed rice or something, which I didn't eat. I don't think it jives well with the steak. Overall, it was good. Am so stuffed!
We arrived a little early for the Abashiri Ferry ride, so our host took us to a nearby hotel for a quick lunch. We went to Abashiri Central Hotel and we had a buffet lunch there. Everything is good of course. I had lots of ebi (shrimp) tempura. :-)
Its a big buffet restaurant in Zusco Mall (hope I got the name of the mall right). The italian pasta is not tasty, but the japanese food, especially the ramen, was fantastic :-) I got a ramen fix from then on.
For a buffet, the price is also good.
Favorite Dish: Ramen!
I had the chance to have lunch at the Forest Kitchen Kawai last month while driving around Tokachi. It's a local place, so nothing fancy, but definitely great food!! The beef was great (similar to the famous kobe beef) but much cheaper. The owner (and cook) was really nice even though he doesn't speak much english.
Favorite Dish: The Sirloin Cut was great!!!
