When comes to Friday night, it is really indeed no idea where to hit on for drinking area, till I was recommended to this cool new place by my friend. Nomi Tomo Sake Bar is located in the heart of Bukit Damansara, KL. A bit of like speakseasy bar as where it is located on the 3rd floor of a shop lot. Below is one of the famous cafe – Huckleberry.
As the door open, it feels like you are entering into a Japanese bar, that you are greeted with 2 huge Japanese rice wine drum along with unique izakaya setting. As you turn to the right side, you you will see warm lighting, bamboo / wooden table and chairs and an amazing collection of sake available on the wall. .
Menu is rather small and simple as most of the food are on the grill . ..
And of course there are plenty of sake for you to choose from
Among the 2 bottles, i chose the one on the left which is recommended and of ourse Half Moon whisky would be recommended if you have a group of friends. After you pick sake, then next is for you to pick on your drinking glass.
This bottle will be more suitable for ladies as the taste is slightly more towards floral, smooth, easy to drink and less of the punch of sake alcohol taste. This bottle cost about RM 180 if I remember correctly.
Then order some grill to hit on. Ordered Butaniku – Pork Belly just with salt and pepper. @ RM 8. A perfect one as tender, juicy and spot on. Next is the Butaniku – Sirloin @ RM 14,
Excited whens ee they have Hitachino Nest Beer on the tap. Ordered one too. Fresh, smooth and frutti as it should be. Better than the bottle.
Not a bad place to chill, however if more crowd are coming in, the place will be too noisy as it is cover with only simple decor and mostly hard surface in area. So voice bouncing everywhere.
