Sapporo Autumn fest 2012 (さっぽろオータムフェスト2012) | Sep. 14 (Fri.) - Sep. 30 (Sun.)

"Sapporo Autumn fest (さっぽろオータムフェスト)" is a food festival, showcasing the richness of food production around Hokkaido and its capital city Sapporo. The five sites along Odori Park in downtown Sapporo bring visitors to the food world of Hokkaido! It's a really enjoyable and recommendable festival! Here we go!

■Odori 4-Chome Site
This is the first block to begin your exploration of Sapporo Autumn fest. Please get the information of each site in this block.
Personally I recommend "Sapporo Chef's Kitchen (さっぽろシェフズキッチン)↓

A famous restaurant chef serves their delicious meals at reasonable prices. The restaurant booth is switched, depending on the day, and please check your favorite one before coming here. This is lasagna served by Sagra, my favorite Italian restaurant in Sapporo.
(* If you're interested in this restaurant, please refer to my other post→)

How about this minestrone? Yummy x 2!!!

■Odori 5-Chome Site
What are the local dishes of Hokkaido? Ramen is one of them, but many places around Hokkaido also have their own delicious dishes. This block introduces some of the wonderful local cuisine to visitors.

This is salt-flavored chaw mein with seafood (北見塩やきそば), a local meal in Kitami. Actually when we went to Kitami this summer, I ate the same fried noodles at a local beer brewery.

■Odori 6-Chome Site
Many local restaurants and the tapas bar provide high quality of local dishes in this block.

Look at the Sapporo Sweets Cafe! We can enjoy cakes in the festival!!

■Odori 7-Chome Site
Hokkaido is one of the best environments in Japan to produce good alcohol beverages. When you are thirsty, please come to this block. Let's enjoy beer, wine, shochu, whiskey and sake!!

If you love bread, this is a must place. "Hokkaido Bakery Marche (ほっかいどうベーカリーマルシェ)" collects popular bakeries' bread at one booth! All of the bread is so popular that it is usually sold out in the morning!

■Odori 8-Chome Site
Hokkaido has as many as 180 municipalities, and more than half of them come all the way to the festival to serve you with their local products.

I really recommend the char-grilled queen crabs (炭火焼本ずわい蟹甲羅盛), a local product in Monbetsu↓ They are so popular every year that you may wait in a long line, but it's worth doing so!!!

This food festival lasts until the 30th of September!
