One of my friends took me to this Chinese Tearoom. They serve various kinds of chinese tea and light meals. It is located near the Chiyogadai Ocean Stadium. If you know where Nakajima elementary school is, it's easy to explain. The cafe is opposite the school.
I ordered a Chinese Tea Set of 550yen. The set consists of a glass of chinese tea and a plate of chinese buns. You can choose a tea from wide range of selections. As for the buns, you can choose one from three; 1. two buns which have sweetbean paste inside, 2. two buns which have vegetable inside, 3. a sweetbean paste bun and a vegetable bun. My choice was 3.
I'm sure they use home-made dough and it was really delicious. The vegetable bun had thinly sliced carrot and raisins inside. As respects tea, you can add boiled water as many as you like.
My friend ordered a "Suigyo-za set" with 700yen. A glass of tea and boiled meat dumplings were offered. The meat dumplings were also tasty and I'm sure I'll order it next time.
Akiko lives in a city next to Hakodate and loves to drive around Hakodate and surrounding area. I hope people who visit or live in the Southwest area of Hokkaido come to love the area, too. 函館の隣町在住で道南エリアのドライブ大好きAkikoです。道南を訪れたり、住んでいる人が土地を好きになってくれたらなぁ、と思います。
