"Dosanko Plaza" in the building of Sapporo JR(Japan Railway) Station is selling the delicious breads made in Bibai City, Sorachi sub-prefectural area, Hokkaido. Dosanko means "born in Hokkaido ". The taste of the breads made by "Bakery Sugiura" in Bibai City live up to the reputation because the breads are delivered from Bibai City everyday. The staff of the bakery shows esprit de corps and hospitality eveytime I visit its small shop in Bibai City.
The bakery is near the apartment run by the municipality but for visitors from other area it is a little bit difficult to find its small building. A small flag with charactors of "すぎうら" is at the corner of the nearest intersection in the residential area of Bibai City.
This year, their new shop will be opened at the roadside of Route 12 in Bibai City.
This lady is so kind that every customer comes to this bakery everyday in Bibai City.
After the days of heavy snow, the sunshine has come back and Mt.Pinneshiri shows its beautiful skyline. Driving on the route 12 in Hokkaido, its fertility can be seen on the rice and veggie field as well as orchards and vineyards in summer and autumn. Even in winter, various kinds of scene can be seen from the route 12 between Sapporo and Asahikawa.
The fried chicken lunch is 880 Japanese yen.
The restaurant does not separate smoking area and non-smoking.
If you do not like smoke, please avoid lunch time because a lot of truckers are smoking at the time.
I am not sure "the difference ". If you find "the point" please post your comment.
The Japanese Chinese dumpling bar is in the down town of Iwamizawa City. The name is "GYOZA-YA". It is the counter bar that provides mainly dumpling "chao-zu" and drink.
A charming lady is handling all by herself in the hole-in-the-wall.
boiled pork flavoured with sugar, soy sauce and spices in its special recipe that contains ample collagen.
The bar is so small that it should not be swamped by a herd of people;)
Have a great generous week!
Hokkaido Food Cluster Festival will be held in Sapporo Grand Hotel on February 14(Tue.)!
Preparing for the event, each sub-prefectural office of Hokkaido Government has begun to select the food to exhibit in the festival.
In Sorachi sub-prefectural area, 13 kinds of food are on the short list to beselect.
Lefthand side is biscuit (cracker in the U.S.A?) made of rice powder with sesame. I prefer more salty taste but for ordinary people it is so nice, I think.
Sorachi sub-prefectural office of Hokkaido Government and private entity will give them a good suggestion for their success.
If anybody could give me good suggestion on the price, I really appreciate it enough.
The manufacturer developed this rice cake originally for fire pot. But I grill it with miso (fermrnted soy beans paste) like the way my grand mother loved.
Newman's Own and Campbell Soup should be the competition of this products in my mind.
Below is Aronia （Chokeberry in English) jelly mentioned above. I can not realize the charateristic taste.
The road to success is not flat.
In Kujirakan at the roadside of Route 275 in Sintotsukawa Town, a souvenir shop is run by the consortium of the municipality and private sector.
The Japanese sake brewery KINTEKI is in the town, so the bottles of Japanese sake are sold in this building , too.
sake. It hits good balance with particularly seafood.
These are melon jello and cakes.
Have you tried, Mr.Baasch ?
