[Benbeya Head Office in Sapporo] Glass Opera Is Eaten to Melt Chocolate by Chocolate

Benbeya

Benbeya (べんべや) is a popular pastry store based in Sapporo city, and has been established since 1990. The benbe means "Benbe village (弁辺村)", and the founder was from Toyoura town (豊浦 * former Benbe village), so he named his pastry store as the name of his birth place. B Ligare corp. runs it, and Mr. Daisuke Doi (土井 大輔) is an owner chef at present. The head office is in Hoshioki, Teine ward, and a branch open a business in the Sapporo. They serve sweets such as cakes, baked confectioneries, soft serve ice creams and ice creams and drinks.

Appearance of Building

My visited place is the head office near Ohioki Nishi Park (星置西公園), and the building renwed in 2010 is stylish. The interior decoration is based on white color, and the building is large, and it is comfortable. A sweets sales place and a cafe place are at the building, and a courtyard is provided at the site, too, and customers can go in and out. The interior decoration and furniture of the cafe place are also stylish, and customers can relax themselves. All seats are table seats, so so I guess that even family customers enjoy sweets and drinks.

SAPPORO

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

Glass Opera

I sat a table seat beside a window, so a waitress handed a menu to me, and I asked her about store's recommendation, so she replied me "That is Glass Opera. We serve some head office limited sweets at the cafe place, and the Glass Opera is one of those, and is most popular". I ordered it immediately. The price was JPY 864. By the way, it is sold only from 11:00 to 16:00.

About 10 minutes later, the Glass Opera that was a container covered with chocolate was served. The apperance looked just chocolate, but coffee flavored granite (popsicle), homemade ice cream with nuts and caramel, almond sponge cakes, custard cream and fresh cream were at the container. A patissier made carefully handmade Glass Opera one by one.

Glass Opera -Benbeya in Sapporo-

A way of eating the Glass Opera 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 in a sheet chocolate as a topcover. After it is dissolved, customers should eat it. As for me, a waitress poured warm chocolate liquid in a topcover chocolate, so it was interesting or I was suprised at it. I thought that it was a highly entertaining sweets.

The bitterness of the chocolate turned into the mild sweetness when I ate the chocolate with the ice cream together. The sweets had a good looks, and was tasty. Thanks for the tasty sweets!
