I was in Hokkaido. Of course seafood is awesome, but I wanted to eat jingisukan, too. So, I went to Genghis Khan Meimei-tei (ジンギスカン羊羊亭) close to Kanemori Red Brick Warehouse.
This restaurant is divided into two spate at center. Left and right. Left is for eating Jingisukan and right is for eating soup curry. Right space is like cafe.
When I entered the restaurant, the staff asked me, “Jingisukan ? or curry ?”. So, I answered “Jingisukan !”. And he led me to the left area.
There’s a call button to order at each table.
The restaurant is located in Hakodate Bay Bishoku Club close to Kanamori Red Brick Warehouse. The closest station is Uoichiba station (魚市場) of Hakodate city car.
This is the lunch menu of Jinsgisukan. They prepare some foods that you don’t need to grill by yourself. Tax excluded. So, perhaps those prices might rose from October 1st because consumption tax rose from 8% to 10%. Last order of lunchtime is 2 p.m. All set have rice, soup and drink. You can choose your drink from some non-alcoholic drinks and small glass of Sapporo Classic beer.
Yummy foods that I had
Raw lamb meat jingisukan set
Though they have pork and lamb meat set, I wanted to eat much lamb meat. So, I ordered Raw lamb meat jingisukan set (生ラムジンギスカン定食, 1380 yen). As soon as I finished to order, the staff set fire to my hotpot and then dishes were served one after another.
Larger slices of fresh lamb meat. We can added lamb meat with extra charge, but it was enough for me.
Free refills of vegetables (mainly soybean sprouts and onions) . I had second helping. The staff put vegetables on the hotpot, and I moved those vegetables around the circle. And I put grilled meat on the circle. Because I went to there by myself, I was so busy grilling vegetable and meat, and eating :p
There are two species of sauce. I liked left salt sauce.
They proud of fresh meat, so they recommend to grill those meat with medium rare. Those meat was soft and tasty, no bad smells. It went with salt sauce that have little sourness. Best friend with rice ! I can keep eating it forever…
All-you-can-eat jingisukan dinner is prepared, so I heard it’s hard to reserve at dinner time. But when I visited there around 1:30 p.m. on weekday, there were many vacant seats.
Good jingisukan can be eaten at Tokyo, but it quite differ in freshness. And the price is lower. Hokkaido is awesome.
