Get your cheese fix at one of these cheesy Niseko locations.
Nothing screams alpine apres indulgence quite like cheese fondue so we've done a little research to bring you this guide to the best places to treat yourself to a cheesy meal when in Niseko.
One of the best places for cheese in Niseko is The Alpinist. Located in the Odin building at the Hirafu intersection, teleport yourself to the Swiss alps in this authentic bistro-style restaurant and bar. Favourites include cheese fondue, raclette, galette and crepes. Yum!
For those staying in lower Hirafu, Grandpapa is a must-try. This Niseko institution has been in business for decades, as both a pension homestay and a fondue restaurant. Inspired by Niseko's 'sister-city', St. Moritz, this family-run operation serves up delicious fondue sets using Swiss cheeses such as emental and gruyere. Choose a white, a red or a sparkling from the extensive wine list to partner your meal.
Head out to Niseko Village to try the famous Milk Kobo. Open year-round, this locally run dairy farm is a huge tourist draw, for good reason too. Three separate restaurants under the Milk Kobo banner operate in the same location. Milk Kobo itself sells soft serve ice-cream, cheese tarts, choux creme puffs and other yummy treats. Prativo is a buffet lunch spot with a huge range of vegetarian dishes. And Mandriano is a pizza restaurant. All three face Mt Yotei for breathtaking views. So, be it a block of cheese to takeaway and eat at home, a cheesy pizza or a delicious cheese tart, the hardest part is choosing which one to try!
