Went to "The Alley", a tapioca tea shop in the basement of Daimaru at Sapporo Station.
Had a large brown sugar tapioca latte. The natural sweetness of the brown sugar was delicious.
It's been a while since took out cheese fondue from "Cairn Honten". This time used the cheese fondue pot bought at Nitori last time.
Added more cheese and wine to the recipe by Cairn Honten. Also added a bit of garlic to make it even more delicious. Cheese fondue went well with the refreshing summer weather in the northland.
Paired it with a G7 Chardonnay Reserva that bought at a nearby Secoma store on the way home. It's available at Secoma here and there, and its consistent taste makes it easy to pair with any dish, making it a great ally, especially when holed up in Corona.
On the way home, bought some Maritozzo at the sweets shop of Sapporo Grand Hotel. They also served cannellés, so could taste both Rome and Bordeaux together, which was indeed a long-established and famous hotel.
Maritozzo peaches. This was apparently a collaboration between Lupicia, a tea store that moved the headquarters from Daikanyama, Tokyo to Niseko, Hokkaido, and Sapporo Grand Hotel. The combination of sweet black tea cream with a hint of rum, peaches, and brioche was a luxurious treat. A wonderful collaboration. There were other types, so would like to have them again next time. Thank you very much for the meal.
