Kappo Uosei is a Japanese restaurant established in 1977 where you can enjoy seasonal seafood produced in the ocean near Hakodate. The mouths of fattened locals also visit this well-known store frequently. The menu is also full with options ranging from seafood donburi and tempura, to set menus that allow you to enjoy authentic cuisine or à la carte options. In many stores, the set course option is often limited to 2 or more people making an order, but here, it is possible to order a portion for one person and split this between two. This way, you can enjoy small portions of a variety of dishes. If you have not had enough to eat, then it is possible to order either à la carte or dishes that are within your budget, so please feel free to taste the set course.

Michelin star cuisine
In the Hokkaido Michelin guide, Kappo Uosei was selected for the Bib Gourmand-status, an award given to stores that provide good value meals. Being able to enjoy fresh seafood caught in Hakodate waters makes this store popular not only among locals but also with tourists.
Recommended course menu
Kappo Uosei’s recommended menu is the Isaribi course (5,400 yen). Including Hakodate’s live squid specialty and flavoursome sea urchins, the timeless grilled salmon which is known as Hokkaido’s luxury food, and salmon roe donburi that uses luxurious vinegar and snow crab, this course menu provides great satisfaction and is no mistake!
Popular, luxury fish to enjoy at a reasonable price
If you want to add more to the course menu, then one recommendation is the Kinkin No Nimono (1,728 yen onward). This fish, which is known as either Kinkin or Akamutsu depending on the region, is a popular and luxurious fish that can be found in the waters of Hokkaido. The quality of the fat on the body is so high that it melts in the mouth and leaves you with a lightly seasoned boiled fish.
