Takumi seeks to spirit us away with a distinctive diversity of Japanese wine, beer & 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 & 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 & 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.
