[Maiko's Madeleine in Shiaoi] Handmade Madeleine with Rich Egg Taste
Maiko’s Madeleine (まいこのマドレーヌ) is a popular pastry shop near Shiraoi Fishery Port (白老漁港) in Shiraoi town located in the southwestern direction of Tomakomai city. Since a building at a residential area is a little far away from National Route 36, so I suppose that it is a little hard to find. Shiraoi Kashikobo Maiko (株式会社しらおい菓子工房まいこ) corp. runs it, and Mrs. Tomoko Sato (佐藤 朋子) is a company president. The origin of the shop’s name is named after her first‐born daughter’s name. They serve baked confectioneries, puddings and cakes. Egg Tart as well as Madeleine, the shop’s name, have a good reputation. Cake Buffet held in early Jult is also popular.
The pastry shop on the 1st floor of a private house is small, and a place for customers to enjoy foods and drinks is provided in front of the entance. By the way, I am impressed by words written on the other side of a bag. The following is it. I am happy that their Madeleine becomes popular.
We live in the Shiraoi town, Hokkaido, and our shop is very small. We aim to full of love and affection in “Our products” and “Our shop”. It is not the size of the shop. The origin of the shop’s name and the brand’s name “Maiko” is the name of my eldest daughter “Maiko (まいこ)” with autism. Because she wanted to live with her family at our home not child welfare facility in future, I opened a cake studio that we work with Maiko together. A secret of the our cake’s taste is handmade sweets with raw materials produced in Hokkaido.
I heard from my friend that sweets were tasty, so I visited here around 14:00 on a weekday. I asked a sales clerk about shop’s recommendation, so he replied me “That is Madeleine with the origin of the shop’s name”. I bought it. The price was JPY 141.
Since tables and chairs were provided outside, I decided to eat my Madeleine there. Thankfully, he cleaned my table and chair. Thank you! Sweet scent floated in the air when I opened a bag. The diameter of the Madeleine was 10 cm, and its height was about 2 cm. I had a bite, and it tasted very rich egg. What tasty madeleine this was! I was suprised at the taste.
They handmade their Madeleine using wheat, fresh butter and sugar produced in Hokkaido one by one, and food additives were not used in their sweets at all. In addition, Egg called “Newly laid egg (うみたて卵)” in the Shiraoi had a secret of the tasty Madeleine. I ate up it quickly because of its good taste. One was not enough. Thanks for the tasty Madeleine!
