Takumi Craft Bar in Isetan The Japan Store: Bar review
Takumi seeks to spirit us away with a distinctive diversity of Japanese wine, beer and whisky, available for retail purchases or to imbibe at this gleaming bar on Isetan The Japan Store’s food market level. Stop by to sip on enjoyably easy-drinking glasses of vintages from Yamanashi’s Chateau Katsunuma, Tottori’s Hojyo Winery and Kyoto’s Tamba Wine (RM30-RM43).
For a refreshing experience, the Hokkaido Melon Wine (RM28) conveys a mellow fruitiness that may transport your senses to a lush, cool-climate orchard. Craft beers are offered on draught at the bar, including through a tasting flight of three kinds for RM50.
The bar opens up cans of gingered Pacific saury, Habanero sardines, wine-steamed mussels, smoked octopus, salt-roasted top shells and lemon peppered oysters (RM12.90-RM40.90) for drinkers who need a bite. Alternatively, scour the mall’s market for sashimi or steamed Japanese sweet potatoes to devour here; only food purchased within Isetan The Japan Store can be consumed at Takumi. Also note that a minimum order of one drink per seat applies at the bar.
