Sandwich to Go -Coffee Shop Saera in Sapporo-
November 1st, 2015
Saera (さえら) is a popular coffee shop in Chuo ward, Sapporo city. There is a building near Sapporo TV Tower. It was founded in 1975 and sandwiches are famous. It is even known for forming a line at lunchtime, and I saw a long line several times and returned. I visited here around 14:00 on weekdays. As was expected, it did not form a line. However, the coffee shop was crowded with visitors. Almost 80 % of the visitor were women, a lot of ladies' magazine were provided so that a woman could relax.
I sat at a table and read a menu, and I was suprised at an abundant sandwich menu. There seemed to be approximately 90 kinds. Specialities of this coffee shop are the fruit sandwich (フルーツサンド) and the king crab sandwich (タラバガニサンド), but the king crab sandwich seems to be sold out by the lunchtime. Therefore I ordered sandwich set with a dish of chiffon, a dish of the fruit sandwich and a glass of an iced coffee. The price was JPY 680.
Approximately 5 minutes later, the sandwich set was served. I ate the fruit sandwich at once and it was tasty! The fruit such as strawberry or mandarin orange sandwiched between white breads, this was sweets rather than the sandwich, and I was surprised. As for the chiffon, it was not too sweet for me and I like it. While I ate it, visitors came one after another. Saera is too popular.
Because the sandwich to go on another day, I ordered the smoked salmon sandwich (スモークサーモンサンド) and the roasted pork fillet with green onion sandwich (ねぎチャーシューサンド). The price is JPY 630. I ate it at Odori park at once. Whether doves and crows understand the taste, they gathered from all quarters. While I was disturbed by them, I enjoyed the sandwiches.
