Sake Bar Yoramu

  • Vegetarian Vegetarian
    ( 3 reviews )

Nijo-dori (at east of Karasuma), Kyoto, Japan

A bar for drinking sake and not a place to eat a full meal. The Israeli owner, Yoram, is knowledgeable about sake and has been serving it out of this tiny bar (seats up to 9) for many years. In addition to the sake, Yoram serves very small plates. He is a vegetarian so you'll see cheese on the menu, but the vegan dishes include Japanese staples like shishito peppers, tofu, and lotus root. Note: kitchen may stop serving 30-60 minutes prior to closing, check ahead. Open Wed-Sat 6:00pm-12:00am.

Must-go if you want to do Sake tasting - Edit

You'll get a variety of Sake, explained and presented by a master of the art, for not too much money. The atmosphere is great. Don't forget to have some snacks (Abura Age!) while enjoying the drinks. Yoram knows everything that's vegan and prepares everything while you watch, it's a joy.

Pros: Atmosphere, Variety, Snacks

All things sake! - Edit

Off the bat, one thing is irrefutable. Yoram, the gentleman behind the bar, literally and figuratively, is well-versed in all things sake. The right tasting technique is explained patiently, though he's gone through this routine a thousand times. After being asked which tastes I disliked in general, he exhibited three big sake bottles in front of me. The tasting started and two more different sakes were added to my list later in the evening. Yoram shared his thoughts about the sake industry's history in Japan and how the new generations are discovering the intricacies of this national beverage.

I did not try the food as I had already eaten but I will go back just for Yoram as he seems a very thoughtful, easy-going and interesting person. He even knew about Oberweis, one of Luxembourg's famous chocolate makers.

Pros: Yoram, the gentleman behind the bar. , The cozy, low-key atmosphere. , Tasting sake with a passionate master.
