Glass Opera Is Ateb in Chocolate Melted by Chocolate -Benbeya Head Office in Sapporo-
November 6th, 2014
Benbeya Head Office (べんべや本店) is a popular pastry shop in Teine ward, Sapporo city and was founded in 1990. There is a cafe terrace at the shop, and there is a yard on the side and customers can go in and out. When I took a seat, a menu was handed from a waitress. After asking her about shop's recommendation, she replied "Glass Opera". There were some menus only at cafe teria, and the most popular cake seemed to be glass opera (グラスオペラ) in that. I ordered it at once. The price was JPY 864. This sweets is sold only from 11:00 to 16:00.
About 10 minutes later, the Glass Opera which was a container covered with chocolate was served. The container had coffee flavored granite (popsicle), homemade ice cream with nuts and caramel, almond sponge cakes, custard cream and fresh cream. A patissier seems to cook handmade glass opera one by one.
How to eat is as follows. Warm chocolate liquid called "Sauce Chocolat au Kyafe (ソース・ショコラ・オ・キャフェ)" is poured into a sheet chocolate as a topcover and it is dissolved, and customers can eat it. A waitress poured warm chocolate liquid into the topcover. Those sweets had an entertainment. The customers crushed rest of sheet chocolate and mixed it and eat it. A taste was considerably bitter. The bitterness of the chocolate became the mild sweetness that I ate the ice cream together. Those sweets were tasty with fun.
