JPY 90 Per Very Reasonable Imagawa-yaki Cake -Hiranaka in Sapporo-
January 3rd, 2017
Oyaki-no-Hiranaka (おやきの平中) is a long established imagawa-yaki cake shop in Kikusui, Shiroishi ward, Sapporo city and was founded in 1958. It takes about 10 minutes from Kikusui Subway Station on foot, so it is inconvenience for tourists, but many local people and local students come. Imagawa-yaki cake is called "Oyaki" in Hokkaido, and it is not same as Oyaki of Nagano prefecture. Oyaki-no-Hiranaka sells 5 types of imagawa-yaki cakes and soft serve ice creams. The lowest price of the imagawa-yaki cakes are JPY 90. Hiranaka is characterized by the reasonable price. Take-away available.
I visited here around 15:00 on Saturday. Imagawa-yaki cake shop with 6 small tables is not so large. I bought the imagawa-yaki cake with chocolate flavor, custard cream flavor and mayocheese (mayonnaise and cheese flavor). Each prices were JPY 90, JPY 90 and JPY 120. The prices were JPY 300 in total. It is very reasonable price. By the way, red bean paste has been most popular flavor since the institution's formation.
I wanted to eat just baked imagawa-yaki cakes and waited for about 15 minutes. There was no custmer at the imagawa-yaki cake shop, but while waiting 5 groups of customers came to take-away in succession. It is popular after all. A female owner served just baked imagawa-yaki cakes with around 5 cm in diameter and a cup of tea. First I had the chocolate flavor. Crispy dough had nice texture. The chocolate flew from the dough when I broken the dough. I was glad that the dough and the chocolate were not too sweet. I recommend not having a sweet tooth it.
I ate the mayocheese (マヨチーズ) after taking the chocolate. The mayocheese is mixed the mayonnaise with cheese and dried green laver and the salty taste is like Okonomiyaki. I was not familiar with the taste, but so tasty. I had my standard oyaki, the custard cream flavor, finally. Sticky sweetness healed my fatigue. I will eat a hamburger steak flavor and a bean jam flavor on the next time and achieve all conquest.
