Starbucks seems to be making its mark every year by building the biggest roastery or cafe. What I know they had one in Shanghai, China. Then currently, the World Biggest Starbucks Reserve Opens in Tokyo about weeks back.

A roastery that is design by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma (the man behind the main host stadium for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.) , as the 4-story roastery was inspired by the cherry blossom trees that line the nearby Meguro river. Hence the to glass walls and terrace, is design to allow customers to gaze out over the sakura trees when they’re in bloom. Build along with the world’s largest Teavana tea bar, as well as an events lounge. A four floors that will be fill with sensory coffee immersion .

As you walk into the building, you will be greeted with their singature mermaid logo and a grand tall glass panel door.

A Willy Wonka-esque system of pipes crisscrosses around the gigantic 17-meter-tall copper coffee cask that dominates the center of the roastery, while 2,100 hand-crafted copper cherry blossoms dangle from the ceiling in homage to the sakura trees that line the Meguro river just outside.

1st floor: 

The floor design are master piece. Starting off at the Main Bar where customers can witness the art of roasting for themselves and sample original Reserve beverages like the Barrel-Aged Cold Brew. You can also dive into buttery-good Italian offerings from Princi, Starbucks’ partner baker. There are also silos where the beans are stored next to the retail areas which stock exclusive merchandise including mugs, coffee cups, coffee grinders, stationery, and accessories.

2nd floor: 

The world biggest Teavana Bar which pays homage to the culture of Japanese tea, serving exclusive tea beverages and desserts. .

3rd floor:

This third floor is where I will be aiming. This is exciting as this will be Starbucks Japan’s first cocktail bar, Arriviamo. Aside from wine, beer, and spirits, it’s the coffee and tea-inspired cocktails like the Nakameguro Espresso Martini that might mean you’ll end up accidentally getting drunk before work here. During Cherry blossom season, the wide terrace attached will the main attraction area, which to admire the cherry blossoms from above instead of below. The top floor, dubbed the AMU Inspiration Lounge, is the community space for locals to hold events that’s also slated to host barista training and other seminars for coffee professionals in the future.

After a good meal on their first outlet which is at Pavilion at Tokyo street, now they have opened another outlet in Paradigm mall, one of the mall that I often drop by as its near my working place. Suki-Ya : Eat All You can Shabu-Shabu from RM29.80++ which is more Japanese authentic steamboat. This would not be my first time for this brand and upoh their new outlet opening, we decided to drop by again as their price for buffet lunch is very reasonable at RM 29.80++ that only offer you a spot for maximum 2 hours.

Sukiya (9)

Sukiya (10)

This is my favourite that we can order unlimited of fine cut meat slices, Chicken, Lamb and Beef.

Sukiya (11)

If you ask me which soup base is the best, I still vote for my favourite Suki-Ya soup base, which is abit more salty authentic taste of Japanese flavour that I have tried, but for me dipping too much of red meat into the soup, it turns not so good. . 😀

Miso is not bad after you concrentrate heavily on Sukiya and Kimchi I do not really like it.

Sukiya (12)

Sukiya (13)

Here we are, enjoying our meal and MC really whack alot of the meat. While saying full. . keep eating. .

Sukiya (14)

For a price like this, I would say its a buffet spread that worth a try as it only allow you to enjoy 2 hours dinning which is far more than enough.

Others you can try:

  1. Mikoshi – Uptown Damansara
  2. Mo-Mo Paradise – Lot 10
  3. Kuro – Plaza Arkadia


Adult (lunch) – RM 29.80 ++
Kids (lunch) – 50% disc off buffet price

Adult (Dinner) – RM33.8- ++
