[Handsome Shokudo in Date] Handsome-Yaki with Dandy Face

Handsome Shokudo

Handsome Shokudo (ハンサム食堂) is a popular imagawa-yaki cake shop in Date city located in the northwestern part of Muroran city. Mr. Ryo Ota (太田 亮) is a shop owner, and has opened a business as a stall. Handsome-yaki (ハンサム焼き * Japanese-style pancake filled with bean jam) is famous. They have 2 branches, Super Arcs Date Branch (スーパーアークス 伊達店) and Roadside Station "Date-Rekishi-no-Mori" Branch (道の駅「だて歴史の杜」店), and sometimes opened a moving stall. Except Handsome-yaki, they serve Bxu-tama (ぶぅ玉 * It is like an Okonomiyaki), Sausage, Soft Serve Ice Cream, Pafait, Drinks and Variety Handsome Goods. My visited shop is Roadside Station Branch beside a resting place at the roadside station. A lots of table seats are provided, so I guess that even family customers enjoy meals.

    Handsome-yaki

    I heard from Ms. Tani that the Handsome-yaki was tasty, so I visited here around 10:00 on a weekday. The Handsome-yaki is a type of Imagawa-yaki cake, and is the original Japanese sweets in the Date. The origin of their name is as follows. That is puns and feeble joke, and Date of Date city (The Date refers to Date Otoko that measn "A dandy guy" in Japanese) --> Date (dandy) Guy --> Handsome, and I guess that its meanings of the word changes so. They served 3 types of the Handsome-yaki, Bean Jam Flavor (あんこ味), Custard Cream Flavor (クリーム味) and Seasonanl Flavor (季節の味). Since I was full, I ordered a Bean Jam Flavored Handsome-yaki and a Custard Cream Flavored Handsome-yaki, signature tastes. The price was JPY 80 per one.

    Menu. Cool Handsome Is Served, too!

    I decided to eat those at a resting place beside the shop. Japanese muffins of around 4 cm height appeared when I took out those from a paper sack. Handsome faces stood out on the surface of the muffins. That face used the owner's face as a motif. I had a good feeling to a slightly foolish and handsome face resembled a comic character of "Utsurun Desu (伝染るんです。)" drawn by Mr. Sensha Yoshida (吉田戦車).

    I ate those immediately. Those were tasty! The sweetness was just right. 2 Handsome-yaki were not enough. If I knew that the Handsome-yaki was this size, I might eat about 10 Handsome-yaki. The Handsome-yaki becomes better known, so the name of the Date city may be renamed to Handsome city if the name of the Handsome-yaki spreads all over world. Thanks for the tasty Japanese muffins!
