Hokkaido Bier Garten @ Puchong

Pursuing Paella at Hokkaido Bier Garten, which has brought a touch of Spain to Puchong.

Top billing is handed to this pork sausage & prawn paella (with squid as the supporting star), piled prodigiously & pleasurably on the pan.

Bored of beef-stuffed potato skins? Hokkaido Bier Garten serves terrifically topped pork ones, the ultimate guilty pleasure after a grueling day at work. 

Porky Asian snacks for mindless munching: skewers of pork & leek, plus fried pork belly.

Japanese wine? Try a bottle of the white, a surprisingly sweet Sauvignon Blanc. Otherwise, French red is also available.

Midori Splice, mingling Bacardi with pineapple juice, alongside a Grapefruit Mojito.

Hokkaido Bier Garten,
IOI Boulevard, Puchong.

  7. I thought they serve Jap cuisine, seeing their name as "Hokkaido"! LOL! I have too much Jap food on my mind now! Nevertheless, love the porky offerings here ;-)

  9. The pork paella looks well-loaded! I think I am not Malaysian enough for the pork obsession...pork is ok-lah...tea anyone?

    1. YouHadYourLunch: ooh, you're right, we do have an unusual fixation for pork here! i guess that's why the heavily loaded pork paella won my heart. i think i'll stick to a nice margarita instead of tea though, heh :D

  10. Ahh the paella looks so good! Although I'm still quite confused with the restaurant's cuisine .. is it Japanese? Is it German? or is it Spanish (since it has Paella).. hehe
