Incredibly Good Halal Seafood in Otaru: Donburi Chaya


Looking for some halal food in Otaru? Then you should definitely try Donburi Chaya. They specialize in seafood bowls, a regional specialty of Hokkaido.

Feel free to follow favy!

Donburi Chaya Otaru Sakaimachidori

Halal restaurants do not abound in Otaru. In fact, from all the information I could gather online, there appears to be only one option that is truly dedicated to offering some Muslim-friendly meals. The place is called Donburi Chaya, and luckily, it's said to be one of the best places in town to get some delicious kaisedon (seafood bowls)! Located on the very nice Sakaimachi Street, Donburi Chaya is a must-go if you're in Otaru.

Halal Status

This is the halal status of the restaurant:
- Pork is not used in the restaurant
- Alcohol is not used in the halal menu
- Only halal meat is used
- Although the kitchen is not exclusively halal, cookware is kept separate

Not that the restaurant is not officially certified halal.

They have a Muslim-friendly English menu so you don't need to worry about whether a particular menu item is halal or not.

A Seafood Paradise!

Hokkaido has a solid reputation in Japan as being one of the best places to have some of the most delectable, fresh seafood. Donburi Chaya will serve you some incredibly beautiful donburi bowls topped with a generous amount of seasonal sashimi. Just pour a little soy sauce (also halal) on top and enjoy your meal!
Salmon is a regional specialty in Hokkaido. You can't go wrong with the salmon donburi!
If raw fish is not your cup of tea, note that they have some options that come with toppings that are grilled.
If you haven't tried ikura (salmon roe) already, this is the place! These little spheres burst in your mouth and have a delicious oceanic savouriness that tastes a little bit like salmon too.
They have some bowls with lots of variety so you can try many different things in one meal. Not a bad idea if you can't make up your mind on what to have.

Whatever you choose, everything is super fresh and tasty so you shouldn't be disappointed. Their seafood bowls are about ¥2,000 to ¥3,000.

Bonus info!

The restaurant even has a prayer room, and you don't even need to order anything to use it. How kind is that from the owners!?
