Nomi Tomo Sake Bar

Translated to ‘Drinking Buddies’ in Japanese, tucked above Huckleberry in Bukit Damansara, is this humble little gem – a sake bar with really tiny sign indicating their appearance.

Took the lift up to the 3rd floor and you will be greeted with the unique izakaya setting. Dimly lit with warm lighting, bamboo / wooden table and chairs, the macho looking bar counter with an amazing collection of sake, bottled craft beers and whisky, also the gigantic chillers to store the sake babies.

It is like a sake museum here. The variety is huge and I love it that they know their sake well. There are bottles of sake lining on the wall, each of them are very well described with the parameter indicating the sweetness, dryness, and richness.

The owner recommended us some sake according to our budget. We were given some samplers before choosing our bottle. We finally settled on BIJOFU Junrei Tama Junmai Ginjo for the love of our first sampling on this sake. Its rice milling rate is 55%; has a softness sweet taste that was pleasant on the palate; with a hint of flowery fragrant that was crisp refreshing, ended with a small note of dry and sharp finishing taste.

The staff then brought an array of chilled sake cups for us to go with our sake. we had these cuties to pair for the night.

Salmon Salad with Yuzu Dressing (Rm 16.5)
Loaded with lots of salmon flakes, tossed in the greens and dressed with citrusy yuzu dressing.

Nomi Tomo serves dishes from small snack to rice bowl and also the sake’s best friend – yakitori. We had some order of yakitori such as pork belly, bacon wish asparagus, meatball and chicken thigh. No doubt, they were well seasoned, smoky and went great with the yakitori bits.

Pork Belly Donburi (Rm 16)
Carbs were needed so we ordered the pork belly rice bowl that was topped with abundance of pork belly slices, greens and a beautiful onsen egg. It was an egg-porn moment when poking through the onsen egg and giving a stir to create a gooey madness to the fluffy white rice.

Oden (Rm 15 during their opening promotion; original price Rm 30)
The 2 of us went crazy ordering more. We had their oden which was promising, for the price and the portion to pay for. Came with a few items in our oden. Very comforting especially during the rainy night. How we wished there are more daikon in this, and the soup can be as rich as those we found in konbini.
