BAR españa (バル・エスパーニャ) is a spanish bar founded in 2006 in Susukino, Chuo ward, Sapporo city, and is near near the Susukino Market (ススキノ市場). Concept Limited Company runs it, and Mr. Akiyoshi Obara (小原 章芳) is a company president. They won the victoy for 2 consecutive years in the Japan Paella Contest, and got the 4th place in the World Paella Contest, so it is very popular bar. No doubt that a popular menu of this bar is paella.
The bar with an atomosphere such as a typical bar is not lrage, and is the size that 15 people seem to enter the bar. Counter seats and table seats are provided, but I suppose that family customers and a large number of people can hardly enjoy meals.
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Read More
I visited this bar with my ex-boss and my ex-coworker. The paella was most famous, but other dishes looked tasty when we read a menu. First we made a toast with beers. A glass of beer was JPY 600. Then we ordered Shrimp Fried in Garlic Oil, Spanish Caesar Salad, Iberico Chuck Steak and Mixed Paella. The each prices were JPY 810, JPY 760, JPY 1000 and JPY 1430. As for the paella, it is the squid ink paella praised by world pople. But they recommended the Mixed Paella if customers visited here for the first time.
The Shrimp Fried in Garlic Oil was served 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 for health 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. The pork was tender, and was tasty!
Last 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, and 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.

By the way, Club Tourism (クラブツーリズム), a Japanese tour travel agency, provides various types of tours such as day trip tours or ordinary tours. In the case of bus tours, tourists do not drive their cars themselves, so they can savor alcohol. Choosen tourist attractions are national parks such as Rishiri and Rebun, Shiretoko, and popular tourist places such as Furano and Biei, and some activities such as hiking and fruit picking are also enjoyed depending on seasons.
