Zeitaku dora(=luxury dorayaki)/贅沢どら

The other day I was given these dorayaki, Japanese cake that pancakes sandwiching sweet bean paste. It is named "zeitaku dora" and sold at Sweets Keyaki on the Hachimandori street.

The diameter of the pancake was smaller than I expected, but the spherical form bean paste thrilled me.

According to the web site of Sweets Keyaki, a Zeitaku dora uses three times as much bean paste as normal dorayaki. The shop is specialized offering various dorayaki other than zeitaku dora. Some use fresh cream, ice cream, custard, etc. The price ranges from 130yen to 300yen for a piece. If you are interested, how about visiting the shop on the Hachimandori street? If you go from Hakodate station, the shop is located on your left.

I love Seicomart, Hokkaido based convenience chain

I love Seicomart. We usually call it Seicoma and love the Hokkado's unique convenience chain. It stays at the top in Hokkaido and you can find the orange signboard everywhere.

They have a lot of original goods and I love its croissant which is baked at the shop. Their 100yen delis are also attractive.

In the photo you see a plastic bag with a logo of Seicoma and the goods are a croissant, a bread called "Yokan pan" which is only seen in Hokkaido and a 100yen deli, tomato sauce pasta.

They offer the goods with reasonable prices by using the local resources. If you visit Hokkaido, never forget to drop by Seicoma;)

Iwashu, a delicious sweet from Setana Town/せたな町の岩シュー

A month ago, my husband bought me iwashu from Setana Town.
岩シューfromせたな

Iwa means rock and shu means cream puff which Japanese call "shu cream". Setana town is situated northwest of Hakodate and it takes about three hours or so by car. you can get this iwawhu at Koda kashiten(甲田菓子店) on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and holiday. They say you should eat iwashu within one hour to enjoy crispy touch of puff shells and fresh cream.

From Setana to where I live it takes at least three hours, but still it tasted pretty good.

Iwashu is very popular not only local Setana people but also others like us. So I recommend to call in advance and make reservation.

Tel: 0137-87-3065
Address: 343-1 Honmachi(or Honcho), Setana-ku
Setana town

You can find the shop easily. In Setana, there are three huge rocks named Sanbonsugi-iwa which means "three cedar tree rocks" that stand near the shore. Try to get to the coast and there is only one street to get there. The confectionary shop is on you right before reaching the coast.

I love Iwashu and never go to Setana without dropping by Koda kashiten to buy some sweets.

Roast Beef Sandwich of Yamakawa Ranch/山川牧場のローストビーフサンド

山川牧場のローストビーフサンド

I love roast beef sandwich of Yamakawa Ranch(or Is "stock farm" a better expression?"). It costs 800 yen but I think it's worth trying. To get to the Yamakawa Ranch, take the prefectural road 43 from 338. If you are driving to Onuma Park from Hakodate, at the nearest intersection from Onuma Station, turn right. There is a Seven-Eleven on the corner.

Its soft served ice cream is delicious and attracts not only tourists but locals. Last weekend, I dropped by the ranch again and tried green tea(Macha)-taste ice cream. It costs 320 yen. I liked it, too.

I recommend trying their products if you have a chance;)

Hakodate Sakaman's Sake flavor bun filled with sweet bean paste

The other day, when the cherry trees were in full bloom, my husband wanted to eat sake flavored buns sold at a shop near the Marui department stores. Hakodate Sakaman is located across the exit to the direction of Chuo Hospital. A bun costs only 50 yen and if you like, you can eat in there. We bought twenty bunsfor two. But we ate them up within the day.
sake flavor buns
Usually, they have three flavors. White one is a sakaman with sake flavor. When you eat it, you can feel faint aroma of sake. Green buns are yomogi, or tansy. For brown color bun, brown sugar is used. Pink bun had salted-cherry-leaf taste. It was limited time offer, I believe.

Last week, I made buns for my grandmother. She has become a centenarian! So I made her red and whitebuns to celebrate using this recipe.

There was left over of powdered red beans which I used for bekomochi, so I started with anko, or sweet red bean paste.

I made about 30 balls of anko bean paste and then, wrap them with dough and steamed.

It was challenging and next time, I'd like to make sakaman for father's day.
