Singapore, 31st January 2018 – Get a taste of Hokkaido, famous for scenic splendour and magnificent food. With an exciting marketplace ambience, the Hokkaido Marche Gourmet Hall brings some of the best of Hokkaido to Singapore with seven self-service stations and one full-service dining concept.

Hokkaido needs no introduction to most Singaporeans. The ones who have not visited Japan’s second-largest and northernmost island for sightseeing or skiing, are familiar with Hokkaido specialties like donburi, nabe, ramen, creamy desserts and chocolate. The combination of soil and climate produce nutrient-rich crops and healthy livestock, making Hokkaido fare well loved in Japan as well as around the world.

Now, you can enjoy the home-grown products from Hokkaido’s favourite food stores without travelling to the towns of Sapporo, Hakodate or Asahikawa. Drop into Orchard Central for yummy donburi topped with fresh seafood or pork, curry rice, soba, udon and of course, the must-have ramen.

The seven new Hokkaido F&B brands at the Gourmet Hall are Dot Café & Bar, Kaisen Natsume, Donburi Maruya, Maruki, Yakitori Tsuyoshi, Shirakaba Sansou Ramen, Ajisai Ramen.

To complete the feeling of dining in Hokkaido, the interior has been designed around the concept of a Japanese yatai (屋台, open air food stands). For a sushi/sashimi treat, Sushi Shiki Hanamaru the standalone sushi restaurant is the place to indulge yourself. With a huge selection of reasonably priced dishes to pick from, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

At the Farmer’s Market & Pavilion, you can enjoy seasonable Hokkaido vegetables and fruits like potato, corn and melon, and also the incomparable seafood, beef and dairy products before you fill your shopping basket in the supermarket. Gather friends and family for a Japanese food fest, and make Hokkaido Marche your new favourite Japanese food haunt!!

All seven of the self-service stations at the Gourmet Hall will be opened on 31st January 2018, while Sushi Shiki Hanamaru, the Sushi concept will open in late February 2018.

Hokkaido Marche at Orchard Central is located at 181 Orchard Road #B2-11 to 29; 44 to 48, Singapore 238896.
