April 14th, 2016
BAR españa (バル・エスパーニャ) is a spanish bar near the Susukino Market (ススキノ市場) in Susukino, Chuo ward, Sapporo city and was built in 2006. It has an atomosphere such as a typical bar and is the size that 15 people seem to enter the bar. But it is very popular bar that many visitors come because they won the victoy in the Japan Paella Contest for 2 consecutive years and got the fourth place in the World Paella Contest. No doubt that the popular menu of this bar is the paella.
I visited this bar with my ex-boss and my ex-coworker. The paella is the most famous, but other dishes looked tasty when we read a menu. At first we made a toast with beers. A glass of beer is JPY 600. Then we ordered the Shrimp Fried in Garlic Oil, the Spanish Caesar Salad, the Iberico Chuck Steak and the Mixed Paella. The each prices are JPY 810, JPY 760, JPY 1000 and JPY 1430. By the way, as for the paella, it is the squid ink paella that the world pople praised. But they recommended the Mixed Paella if customers visited here first time.
The Shrimp Fried in Garlic Oil was served at first. The garlic oil was boiled gently and the shrimp looked tasty. In fact, the shrimp was very juicy. A slice of baguette was dipped in garlic oil and was eaten, it was very tasty! Then, the Spanish Caesar Salad was served. Vegetables were tasty, too. It will do us good to eat vegetables.
Then, the Iberico Chuck Steak was served. A dish of small gratin and a dish of wasabi saurce were served together, too.
Finally, the Mixed Paella was served. We waited for around 1 hour. The Mixed Paella was full of a nice fragrance. I flaked off burnt rice from a pan, and there were dry rice and moist rice, I was interested in food texture. It was very tasty! That was wonderful. We can enjoy luxuriously the fourth place Paella in the world while staying in Hokkaido.
