By the way, Maccarina (They garnered one star in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition) in Makkari village and Moliere (they garnered three stars in MICHELIN GUIDE Hokkaido 2012 Special Edition) in Sapporo are sister restraunts. A building is stylish, too, and visitors can observe a cooking through glass. This building was designed by Osamu Suzuki Atelier. All seats are table seat, so I guess that family customers also enjoy meals.

French Cuisine

We visited here to have a lunch on a weekday. Because I wanted Mr. O, my friend that visited Hokkaido for the first time, to eat tasty vegetables of the Hokkaido, I took him to the ASPERGES. I reserved the restraunt this time, and visited here, but reservations were almost full. Because visitors without a reservation could not enter the restraunt, so I think that a reservation may be made beforehand. Lunch courses had 3 types, JPY 2,600 course, JPY 3,600 course and JPY 4,600 course, and we chose each JPY 2,600 courses.

As for the French cuisine, a turn of a dish is decided. It is called Russian style to be served one by one dish on a table. Because the dish got cold in cold Russia, it seemed to become so. I think that it is a suitable style for cold Hokkaido. In addition, I ordered a non-alcoholic beer because drink could be ordered, too. The price is JPY 600.

Homemade Jambon of Biei Pig Leg

Jambon means "A uncured ham of the pig leg" in French. Uncured hams, sauce, caviars, marinade of Chinese cabbage were dished up on a plate. That was tasty when I mixed the biei pig leg, sauce and caviars and ate it. In addition, stewed onions were served after having finished eating the jambon. The onion was stewed without probably using all seasonings, and we could feel vegetables original taste.
