This famous noodle soup hails from the capital of Hokkaido, Japan’s most northern island. Their food is typically fatty and warming, which is needed during the harsh winters. It is a gutsy, pulls-no-punches kind of noodle soup, so make sure you are hungry. The sweetcorn and butter topping are its hallmarks, as the island is known for producing the sweetest corn and for its use of dairy products.
The toppings can vary, often roast char siu pork is added instead of chicken, while a poached egg is also popular.
