Famous for Ishikari-nabe, a regional specialty filled with salmon. Long-established salmon specialty restaurant
Kindaitei, opened in 1880, is a salmon specialty restaurant located in the city of Ishikari, 40-minutes from central Sapporo by car. Both the salmon from autumn and the masu trout (a type of fish in the same salmon family) served from spring to autumn are caught locally in Ishikari and prepared into course meals for you to enjoy, using the salmon-filled traditional recipes preserved since the restaurant’s founding. The final course, Ishikari-nabe, is a Hokkaido regional specialty that consists of ingredients such as salmon and vegetables stewed in miso, and is a dish with many fans who love Kindaitei’s original seasoning. Other famous dishes you can taste include the traditional Ainu dish of frozen salmon sashimi called “rui-be,” and mefun (salted and fermented salmon kidney), which pairs well with Japanese sake. The restaurant is located right next to Ishikari Asobeach, so you can enjoy a walk after your meal.
