Sapporo Restaurant Review

: Sapporo surprises New York diners on two levels. First, the restaurant is lodged on 49th Street just a few steps from Times Square, and it’s so discrete that it’s easily overlooked. Second, despite its tourist trap location, Sapporo serves up above-average ramen in a very non-flashy front room. Blond wood tables and few design flourishes make up the space, leaving the emphasis on the huge bowls of nourishing ramen. And there are many types from which to choose, including sesame paste with minced pork and hot chili, and organic miso with grated ginger and garlic, topped with sliced chashu pork. One of the best versions, however, is the cold ramen soup, served with ham, eggs, fishcakes and corn. Appropriately enough, complement it all with a large bottle of Sapporo beer.
