Kindaitei: Enjoy a Regional Specialty at the Restaurant That Invented It – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Ishikari’s must-try local dish is Ishikari-nabe, a hearty hot pot made with fresh salmon or trout, complemented by vegetables, such as cabbage and onion, in a miso and kelp broth. The best place to enjoy Ishikari-nabe is Kindaitei, a restaurant which first opened in 1880, that is said to be the birthplace of this iconic dish. With the same decor as in its early days and exhibits of everyday items from the 19th century, Kindaitei is not just a restaurant, but a historical experience!
