After my Hokkaido trip, a lot of my friends asking me about the food. "What to eat in Hokkaido? Is the food good? What's the speciality and what's your fave food there?" I seriously had a hard time thinking about how to answer without sounding like a glutton. Because most of the food that I ate in Hokkaido just blew my mind. Too many delicious food that within a week my camera was almost full of food pictures. Yeah, it's not easy either to sort out just a few from hundreds for this food porn post. Are you sure you are ready for this post ? Please don't lick your monitor, okie dokie ?*wink*

|kaizen (seafood) ramen with scallop|
My fave is the kaizen or seafood ramen with scallop in Sapporo. The broth is savoury and sweet because it's added crab. Topped with sweet corn which is crunchy and buttery in the same time. Take a bite of the soft boiled egg and indulge some of the creamy yolk drips onto your tongue. Let the tears of happiness flow on your cheeks :p

Fun fact: Pucchin Purrin has been recognised by Guinness World Records as the world's best-selling pudding, after 5.1 billion units were sold since it hit the market in 1972, according to its maker.

|grilled life scallop|
Hotate or scallop. I save the best for last. You can not leave Hokkaido without trying their famous scallop. I had always love eating scallops but in Hokkaido I tried the grilled live scallop for the first time. It's so so sooo delicious that I saw a unicorn flying over the rainbow every time I ate this. The meat is crunchy, sweet, buttery, and savoury in the same time. I think I spent most of my money to buy scallops. At that time I was thinking to marry a scallop seller in Hokkaido, so I can eat scallops every single day for the rest of my life, lol. I know, I'm just so naive sometime :p
That's a video to show you how they cook the life scallops.
