Sweet Orchestra (スイートオーケストラ) is a popular confectionery store founded in 1966 in a residential area, Shiroishi ward, Sapporo city, and is near Subway Tozai Line Nango 7-Chome Station. Warakudo corp. (株式会社わらく堂) runs it, and has been established since 1966. Originally, They have produced Japanese sweets, and have sold those, and have started a western confectionery section "Sweet Orchestra" since 2002. Sweet Potato (スイートポテト) and OmoCheese (おもっちーず) are popular, their sweets are often appeared in Japanese TV and Japanese magazines.
The store renewed in 2016 looks new, and the white-based interior decoration is very clean. It is not so large, but 4 tables are provided, so customers can eat sweets and drinks at the store.
Sapporo (札幌) that about 1,960,000 people live is the largest city in Hokkaido. Although there are various theories, its origin of the name is "Dry Big River (乾いた大きな川)" in Ainu language. A population of the Sapporo is the 4th largest city after Yokohama, Osaka and Nagoya in japan, and the population accounts for 36 % of Hokkaido's population! So the Sapporo has been flourished as the center of the Hokkaido. The area of the Sapporo is 1,121.26 km2, and is about as big as Hong Kong, and is the 7th largest city in the Hokkaido. The Sapporo is also famous as a tourist city, and about 15 million people come. As for a climate, it is hot that temperature rises to nearly 25 degrees in a summer, but it is easy to live without moisture. I always feel a little cool. It is cold that temperature falls to nearly -10 degrees in a winter, and amount of snowfall sometimes has more than 1 m. Read More
OmoCheese and Cannolo
I visited here to eat the OmoCheese around 13:00 on a weekday. Cakes, baked sweets, French toast and egg sandwich were sold at the confectionery store. Except the OmoCheese, I wanted to eat another something, but I could not make up my mind which one to eat. I could not decide what to eat. Finally, I ordered the OmoCheese with a drink set and Cannolo. I paid JPY 800 in advance at a cash register even if the place for custmers to enjoy foods and drinks is used. By the way, drink bar users can help themselves to favorite drinks any number of times.
First I ate a plain flavored OmoCheese. That was a softy confectionery of 3 cm square like a rice cake, and had the rich cheese taste. It was tasty! The OmoCheese had very interesting texture like the cheese or the rice cake. Then I ate a chocolate flavored OmoCheese. The taste was mixed chocolate flavor with cheese flavor. Both OmoCheese were same texture.
Last I ate the Cannolo. It was a speciality cake of Sicily in Italy, and a full-blown piecrust was wrapped with cheese cream produced in Hokkaido. I was surprised with chewy texture, and the piecrust was not crunchy. But that piecrust went well with the cheese cream, so it was tasty, too. Thanks for the tasty sweets!
