May 29th, 2014
Sweet Lady Jane
Sweet Lady Jane (スイート・レディ・ジェーン) is a popular sweets shop facing Kita 3jo Street in Chuo ward, Sapporo city, and is near Sapporo Factory. They serve old-fashioned American cakes. Mr. Hiroyuki Makoshi (馬越 弘幸), an owner patissier, that trained his cooking skill in the West Coast of the U.S. has been established the shop since 2005. His ancestor used to be a president of Dai-Nihon Brewery (大日本麦酒) that is a predecessor concern of Sapporo Beer. It is an interesting fate that the shop is built in front of the Sapporo Factory that used to be a factory of the Dai-Nihon Brewery.
The shop is not large, and the interior decoration and furnitures are early-American style, and it has a good atmosphere. A cafe area is also provided, and all seats are table seats, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.
Sapporo Factory (サッポロファクトリー) a commercial complex in Chuo ward, Sapporo city, and has been opened a business since 1993. Here used to be the first beer factory "Hokkaido Development Commission Brewery (開拓使麦酒醸造所)" in Japan. The ruins of buildings utilized an old atomosphere were rebeared as one of the largest shopping malls in the Japan. About 7,000,000 people come. Brick Building (レンガ館) has beautiful ivied walls, so superb fall foliage can be enjoyed in an autumn. Article is here
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. Article is here
Fruit Salad Clafoutis
I visited here around 11:00 on a weekday. 2 groups of customers enjoyed their sweets and drinks. A lot of cakes were displayed at a showcase, so I asked a waitress about shop's recommendation, and she replied me "Fruit Salad Clafoutis (フルーツサラダのクラフティ) is selling well". Therefore I ordered it. The price was JPY 400.
I decided to eat it at the cafe area. The clafoutis on a plate was served. The cake looked beautiful. The clafoutis topped with 8 types of fruites was not too sweet, so I enjoyed eating. Because other customers bought a lots of Boston cream puffs at that time, those looked tasty. Thanks for the tasty cake!
