L’enfant qui reve | French Restaurant | Moerenuma Park | Sapporo

If you want to eat delicious French food in a wonderful park, I recommend "L’enfant qui reve", a French Restaurant in Moerenuma Park, Sapporo. This restaurant is produced by Chef Nakamichi, who also produces "RESTAURANT maccarina", a very famous French restaurant that G8 leaders also used during the G8 summit. 

Well, Moerenuma Park was designed by Isamu Noguchi, a world-famous Japanese American artist. The playground equipment, outdoor sport fields, as well as objects in the park are also his art works.

Construction of the park was begun in 1988, and opened in 2005. The park has won a number of awards including the Good Design Award in 2002.






If you want to know the general information about the park, please refer to my previous post→click!

"L’enfant qui reve" is in "Glass Pyramid HIDAMARI", one of the main facilities in the park.

Let's enter the French Restaurant!

First, we stayed for a while in a waiting room↓ until the table is prepared.

The room has big windows and is very comfortable.

I like this open kitchen! All of the staff are very friendly and we can relax here!

The atmosphere is like this↓and

we booked the window table.
(Of course!!)

Look at the fork and knife! Very cute and fashionable!!

They use selected ingredients produced mainly in Hokkaido. Great concept, isn't it?

I love this mozzarella & little quiche!!! 

The pickles includes melon, too! The wine and grapefruit gelee is very colorful and refreshing!

I've been to "RESTAURANT maccarina", but the scenery from the seat here is much better than that in "RESTAURANT maccarina".

■entree
Summer vegetables and grilled scallop

It's like a JEWELRY BOX!!!! Beautiful!

The bread was hot and delicious and I ate three pieces of it :-)

■deuxieme
Ressotto with Sakhalin surf clam

Sakhalin surf clam is caught mainly in Hokkaido, NATURALLY sweet and very delicious!! The black wild rice is used for the curry-flavored ressotto.

This is not normal water but natural water sprung at the foot of Mt. Yotei, one of the famous mountain in Hokkaido.

■troisieme
Vichyssoise

The potatoes were produced in Makkari Village, a famous potato production site in Hokkaido!

■plat de principal
Joue de boeuf

Some carrot, potatoes and white radish are added to the cheek part of beef!

See!! It's very TENDER!!!

This "May queen" is AGED over the last winter and very sweet!

■avant dessert
Milk sorbet with marinated melon and adzuki bean jam

I love this sorbet! It's really MILKY and goes well with ADZUKI beam jam!!

■grand dessert
Vanilla ice cream with tapioca

The ice cream is different from the sorbet above in flavor and texture. We really enjoyed two kinds of ice cream!

■mignardise et cafe

It's supposed to be coffee, but I chose herb tea (rose hip, strawberry, and pineapple) ↓

They serve set menu only↓

Why don't you enjoy the delicious meal and wonderful scenery at the fashionable restaurant in Moerenuma Park in Sapporo?

KK,
It's very interesting. I understand that you like this park and the cooking in this restaurant. Few words of the menu are in French. The Plat principal for example with Joue de Boeuf. We use sometime the piece of meat it's the best of the cow for me because it's very tender we can eat it with a little spoon !
Thank map girl
