You may know “parfait” as sundae or knickerbocker glory. The word originally came from French meaning “perfect”. In France, parfait is a frozen dessert made with egg yolk and sugar, but here in Japan, one with fruits and whipped cream is common. Shime for shime parfait means “conclusion”. In Japan, we eat ramen (noodle) as a shime after a night of drinking, but people in Sapporo finish with a cold and sweet parfait instead. Sapporo’s parfait is often made of rich soft serve ice cream and fresh cream because more than a third of dairy farms in Japan are located in Hokkaido. We hope you enjoy our delicious parfait and experience this unique shime food culture in Sapporo.
