We are going to Sapporo in May, where we wiill spend a weekend. We are looking for great places to eat, both inexpesive and fine dining, both lunch and dinner. I realise this is a bit of a vague request, but my wife and I are going with two friends, and we are not familiar enough with their tastes and spending habits to be too specific.
It would be fantastic if anyone could recommend any of the following: great seafood / crab places (there is what looks like an excellent and good value for money recommendation for all-you-can-eat crab on this website), some typically "Hokkaido-style" places (in terms of local cuisine), then perhaps something Japanese and meat-based, yakitori, izakaya and some seriously good Western dining (preferably Italian). Anything else that I have not listed but you think would be worthwhile would also be gratefully received.
Thank you very much!!
