Ice Cream with Liqueurs for Adult -Milk Village in Sapporo-
May 21st, 2016
Milk Village (ミルク村) is an ice cream bar on 6 floor at New Hokusei Building (ニュー北星ビル) near Susukino intersection, Chuo ward, Sapporo city and was founded in 1995. The bar has an unique atmosphere and reminds me of Oldies. There are tables and countner seats at the bar, many customers seem to come. But the bar seems to be crowded in the weekends evening, and cutomers may make form a line. By the way, I asked a waitress about taking a picture, and she replied it is okay except a menu.
I visited here around 14:00 on weekdays. A group of a customer had been at the bar. I sat at a table and read the menu. Menu items had 3 kinds, A set, B set and C set, those price are JPY 1390 per set. Dishes did not seem to be served. A set was recommended, and I ordered it. As for A set, the customer can choose 2 different liquors among 100 different liquors. I asked the waitress about recommended liquors, and she replied Ballantine's 30 Year Old and Tequila seemed to go well with the ice cream. Therefore I ordered those. About 10 minutes later, A set was served.
A set has an ice cream, 3 different liquors (the Ballantine's 30 Year Old, the Tequila and the Tea Liqueur), a container for coffee powder, a cup for quinoa, a container for yogurt, a piece of crepe, and the customers will change a taste of the ice cream with those toppings and are able to enjoy the various taste.
An owner, Mr. Iwamura (岩村), trained patissier skill himself in France, and after he was happen to meet tasty fresh milk, he had moved to Hokkaido and begun to make the ice cream. The ice cream is made from fresh milk produced in Hokkaido with an orange liqueur and fresh cream, and it is just like soft serve ice cream with fluffy texture. The customers can get another cup of iced cream only once.
The waitress told me what to eat. At first visitors eat only the ice cream and enjoy an original taste. Then, 2/3 ice cream is placed on a spoon, and the spoon is put on an ice cram mug, and visitors pour a liqueur into the spoon and eat it. As for the Ballantine and the Tequila, those bitter tastes went well with sweetness of the ice cream. As for the Tea Liqueur, its sweet taste wnet well with sweetness of the ice cream, too. Those were very interesting. Except the liqueurs, other toppings had good tastes and nice texture, the customers would enjoy various things.
A cup of coffee and a cookie were served last. The shape of the cookie was just like Koala, and it was good. The visitors can enjoy an atmosphere slightly different from their daily life at the Milk Village.
