sapporo サッポロ

sapporo-6

日本の友達の日記を読んでたらむしょうにラーメンが食べたくなり、49th、7thとBroadwayの間の老舗、Sapporoへ
この店に初めて来たのは1985年の冬、アメリカに留学して6ヶ月目、ノースカロライナから友達と車でニューヨークを目指し

今も昔も変わらぬこのまずさ、塩辛い、麺のしゃきっとしない、チャーシューも中途半端な特製ラーメン

でも当時日本を離れて数ヶ月ぶりの日本食、よろこんで食べてた記憶が


I felt an urge to eat Ramen while reading a diary by my Japanese friend so I headed to “Sapporo”, on 49th St. between 7th Ave. and Broadway.
My first visit was back in winter of 1985, five months since I came to US as a collage student. My Japanese friends and I drove all the way from North Carolina to NYC to experience the City.

Lots of things changed since but Ramen here has not, soup is too salty, noodle is over cooked, and pork Chashu is greasy but no fravor...

But I was so happy to have my Ramen at Sapporo in NYC back then as it was my first decent Japanese meal in few month of living in US.
