I am very happy!

A lot of my favorite seafood is on top of the rice.


There was also a sweets shop in Hokkaido.

What would you like to have?


Cheese shaped like a gourd, "Caciocavallo" (Japanese text) Fromage no mori

Caciocavallo 972 yen (tax included 8%)

Funny shaped cheese


Dairy farming industry is flourishing in Hokkaido.

So there were also cheese and pizza sales.


I tried eating Caciocavallo!

Baked cheese looks delicious

Cut → Back → Turn → Put cheese on bread

After baking in a frying pan, it became very delicious.

It looks delicious even if you use salt and pepper.
