Sapporo’s parent company locally operates Sweet Poke, Samurai Japanese Steakhouse, and Ichi Ramen, which debuted last fall, less than half a mile from this Centennial expansion.
Promising to be “coming soon,” the second Sapporo will fill a substantial 5,361-square-foot site next door to Moo Woo Korean BBQ and across the parking lot from another future arrival, Cafe Zupas.
Sapporo will be sharing its technical expertise with another sibling project, Master Kim’s Korean BBQ in Spring Valley, which will install a “special express delivery system” to send ingredients to its customer’s tables for cooking. That location at Durango Arby Plaza, close to the intersection of Durango Drive and Arby Avenue, is also “coming soon.”
Launched last December, Sapporo’s patrons grab plates of dishes such as sushi, nigiri, and chicken karaage as they travel past their seat, with each portion priced at $2.50. For more kitchen-intensive choices, orders are placed on an iPad installed at each table and are then delivered by a separate miniature “train.”
