Last evening, 6 lucky Sewardites were able to sample Obihiro Special Dishes all over town! The following restaurants are selling their own version of the ‘Obihiro Special’ and donating a percentage of the profits to the Obihiro Mural Project! Chinooks, Cantina, The Breeze, Woody’s Thai Restaurant, Red’s Burger, The Chattermark, and Gene’s Place all are selling these specials for the month of August. By ordering the Obihiro Special, you are supporting the Obihiro Mural Project! The City of Seward in collaboration with the Seward Arts Council, Seward Mural Society, and Seward artists is installing and dedicating Justine Pechuzal’s Mural “Friendship Across Water” at the Zoo in Obihiro, Japan this September. This reflects a long tradition of cultural exchange with our sister city of Obihiro, Japan. Thanks for your support!
The tasting committee judged the specials on Appearance, Texture, Flavor and Creativity. An article about the experience and the winning special will be printed in the August 28th Seward Journal. For now, photos of these delicious dishes (in no particular order)! Remember you can still support our restaurants as well as the Obihiro Mural Project for the rest of this month!
