The simple things

Meat on a stick? Definitely one of the most simple and pleasing things in the gastro-world. Luckily we are able to get a few varieties at the local Niseko Viewplaza (which is like a little farmers market).


Another simple beauty, the sausage sandwich. We're able to indulge in a variety of sausages made the traditional German way just a few km's down the road, sandwiched in some soft bread with a good squirt of ketchup.


Then there's a little cup of sweet corn soup.


And potato butter .... once you have eaten Hokkaido potatoes, there really is no going back. And topped with locally made butter. Heaven!


Just to top of the decadence, a soft cream cone made at the local Milk Kobo dairy in Higashiyama where you still pre-buy a token from a vending machine before claiming your ice-cream.


Ahhh, the simple pleasures in life !!

Looking at that soft serve cone made me think of home (New Zealand) as we have the best soft serve cones!
