Tasty Pancake -Rokkatei Nishi3jo Branch in Obihiro-
June 28th, 2014
Rokkatei (六花亭) is a popular confectionery company in Obihiro city. Marseille Butter Sandwich (マルセイユバターサンド) and Strawberry Chocolate (ストロベリーチョコレート) are famous. Originally it was Obihiro Branch of Senshuan (千秋庵), famous long-established confectionery company in Hakodate, but it became independent in 1977. By the way, Rokka means a snowy crystal in Japanese language. They already became a cake brand on behalf of Hokkaido. The Rokkatei has many branch stores in Hokkaido. I visited Nishi-3-jo branch (西三条店) this time. First floor is a sale space of sweets, and second floor is a tea room. Because a parking lot is large, Nishi-3-jo branch store is convenient for people to visit by cars.
I expected for forming a line and visited here, but I took a seat immediately. When I asked a waitress about store's sweets recommendation, she replied "Pancake (ホットケーキ) or Sakusaku (crispy) Croissant (サクサククロワッサン)". Because a reputation of the pancake was high in prior investigation, I ordered the pancake.
Butter and syrup soaked into fluffy pancakes. I enjoyed eating slightly sweet pancakes. * Sakusaku (crispy) croissant is only menu at Nishi-3-jo branch store. When I look back on times, I should just eat it. I went back, and 5 groups of visitors lined up. I was lucky.
Assorted Sweets of Rokkatei are found on Amazon.
