[Fleur Blanc Head Office in Tomakomai] Good Sour Tart with Full of Fruits
April 19th, 2014
Shikisha-no-Mori Fleur Blanc (四季舎の森フルールブラン) is a popular bakery based in Tomakomai city, and has been opened since 2011. It is run by Shikisha (四季舎), a company dealing with a mail order. They have been paying a lot of attention to sweets, and they welcomed Mr. Yasuhiko Sato (佐藤康彦), a famous patissier, to their company. His Sapporo, Strawberry Tart (さっぽろ・いちごタルト) won the grand prix in the first Sapporo Sweets Competition (第1回さっぽろスイーツコンペティション). The head office is in Nishikioka, and some branches open a business in the Tomakomai.
My visited place is the head office near National Institute of Technology, Tomakomai College (苫小牧工業高等専門学校). The building has a stylish brick entance, and a garden is also provided. A bread sales area, a sweets sales area and a place for custmers to enjoy foods and drinks are at the comfortable building, so so I guess that even family customers enjoy foods and drinks.
Tomakomai (苫小牧) that 170,000 people live along Pacific Ocean is the fourth largest industrial city in Hokkaido, and is located in the central part of the Hokkaido. There are Oji Paper factory (王子製紙), petrochemical complexes and Tomato-Atsuma Thermal Power Plant, the largest thermal power plant in the Hokkaido. As for a climate, it is warmer than other places in Hokkaido in a summer or in a winter, and it features that the Tomakomai has less snow than other placess in the Hokkaido. Therefore skating as one of famous winter sports is prosperous, so ASIA LEAGUE ICE HOCKEY Team "Oji Eagles" is based in the Tomakomai. Because the Tomakomai is close to New Chitose Airport, and Tomakomai Ferry terminal is built, so the Tomakomai has traffic convenience. Article is here
Tart with Full of Fruits
This place was far away from the downtown of the Tomakomai, but the store was crowded with customers. Most of them brougt breads, but I went to buy sweets. At the building, the sweets sales area and the bread sales area were divided completely by a wall. I asked a waitress about store's recommendation, so she replied me "Tarts are sold well". Then I planned to buy a Tart with Full of Fruits (果実いっぱいタルト). The price was JPY 294.
I decided to go to the place for custmers to enjoy foods and drinks, and eat my tart. The tart was topped with various fruits such as a slice of strawberry, a slice of kiwi fruit, a slice of pineapple, a slice of orange and slices of beries, and the colorful appearance looked tasty. I had a bite immediately, and it was just right sour, and it was good to be not too sweet. It was tasty! A lots of customers went in or out here while eating my tart. It was popular after all. Thanks for the tasty tart!
