Sado trip! ③ Drink craft cola in a historic building “Kihachiya Goro Cafe”



You can taste Sado’s new specialty at a nostalgic cafe!

“Kihachiya Goro Cafe” is located in a corner of the city, about a 7-minute walk from Ogi Port in Sado City.Actually, this shop is not an ordinary cafe. In fact, it is a historical building with a long history and is designated as a national tangible registered cultural property.

This building was an inn that had been in operation since the Meiji era.Even now, the atmosphere of that time remains, and the nostalgic space is spreading.

The building is a five-story wooden building, but only the first floor is open to the public as a cafe.Inside the store, there are remnants of the time of the inn, such as an old telephone booth and a manual elevator that was actually used.

Normally, you can only visit the 1st floor, but this time we asked you to take a special tour of the upper floors.

Originally this building was a double-decker building, but in 1945 the 3rd to 5th floors were expanded.At that time, it was added on top of the building on the second floor, so the roof on the second floor remains inside the building.

This is called “Kobabuki roof”.In the old days, roof tiles were expensive, so wooden boards were placed on the roof.

Previously, I could see the scenic spots Yajima and Kyojima from the 2nd floor. The surrounding buildings became taller and the scenery became invisible, so the 3rd to 5th floors were expanded and the 4th and 5th floors were used as guest rooms.

After learning about the history of the building, let’s fill your stomach.

Flying fish salad pizza 760 yen (tax included)

The owner’s recommendation is “Flying Fish Salad Pizza” using Sado’s soul food.Sado’s soul food, “flying fish surimi,” is placed on top of the pizza dough and plenty of fresh salad.

Flying fish is a very popular ingredient in Sado.It’s standard to use surimi as a fish ball to make miso soup …

For pizza, the surimi is thinly spread and baked crispy and topped with pizza.Excellent compatibility with mochi-mochi dough.Not only the dough, but also the mayonnaise-based dressing and sweet chili sauce, which are the decisive factors for the taste, are all homemade.

Ogi Craft Coke 500 yen (tax included)

The next recommendation is the much-talked-about craft cola.It is a discerning “Ogi Craft Cola” using vegetation harvested in the Ogi area.

The sweetness is a little modest, but it has a gentle taste using natural ingredients.But the taste is cola! ??  Using hawk claws, ginger, lemon, etc. as a secret ingredient, it is a spicy and healthy drink.

The mysterious taste is very popular with men and women of all ages.

Bucket toast 360 yen (tax included)

Lastly, we will introduce the exquisite sweets “Bucket Toast”.On the bucket of a popular bakery in Sado, there are plenty of fresh cream from Sado Dairy, homemade sour cream made from yogurt, and a special sauce made from seasonal fruits from Sado.This time, we topped with strawberry sauce from the Hamochi area.The crispy toast and sweet and sour strawberry sauce go great together.Please eat with Ogi Craft Coke.
