Fodor's Expert Review Daruma

$$ Sapporo Japanese

Below the red sign depicting a roly-poly mustachioed doll, this 60-year-old establishment serves the city's freshest barbecued lamb jingisukan. The slices of lamb are served steaming atop heaps of vegetables. At the end of the meal you're given hot tea to mix with what's left of your dipping sauce—mixed together, they're oddly delicious. Be sure to wear your least-favorite clothes and don the paper bib that's provided, then feast away until you become roly-poly yourself.
