The dish of grilled mutton known as jingisukan (“Genghis Khan”), washed down with the local beer, is the classic food fare in Hokkaido. The dish involves grilling mutton on a domed hot plate together with vegetables, such as bean sprouts and onions. The grilled food is then eaten with a strongly flavored dipping sauce.
A highly recommended spot for trying jingisukan is Sapporo Beer Garden. Its Genghis Khan Hall is a beer hall that is housed in an atmospheric historical building, which served as a government offi ce in the pioneer days of Hokkaido. With ivy climbing up its redbrick walls, this grand old building is a wonderful place to visit in every season.
You can enjoy jingisukan with draft beer direct from the nearby factory in the large beer hall. The hall offers all-you-can-eat and all-you-can-drink options, so it is a great place to take children or enjoy with a crowd. The excellent food goes down well and makes a perfect dinner for people of all ages. Sapporo Beer Garden is something you should not miss when sightseeing in Hokkaido.
