The 19th Suzuki Shoten @ Solaris Dutamas

This new sake shop conceals a beautiful secret - a gleaming bar where customers can sip & snack on Japanese liquor & food.

Named for the family of its founder Ichiro Suzuki (who heads the Malaysian-based Hiro food packaging company), this venue serves all manner of smooth-tasting sake & shochu from regional breweries, complemented by onigiri & sushi made with rice cultivated in Akita Prefecture. For a change from KL's regular beer & cocktail joints, spend a couple of hours experiencing Japanese-inspired hospitality at The 19th Suzuki Shoten, then purchase a few bottles of junmai to continue imbibing at home.

The 19th Suzuki Shoten
A3-G2-6, Solaris Dutamas, Outside Publika, Kuala Lumpur. Tues-Sun, 11am-9pm.

  1. Blueberry sake sounds interesting, did you try that? :P

    1. CK: unfortunately no - but I would like to, since I like blueberries! ;)

  2. That's nice, an eatery and a shop combined. My girl would love it...and buy a whole lot of stuff from here. She loves Japanese.

    1. Suituapui: yeah, the combination of a restaurant and retail therapy, targeting fans of japanese rice and booze, could be attractive to many customers ;)

  3. I'm not a fan of plastic plates, but the sake bar looks tempting.

    1. The Yum List: yeah, it's quite a lovely bar - i think they were using some disposable plates only for that particular afternoon, cos it was a walk-in soft-launch sort of event, and people were streaming in and out ;)

  4. You know when I'd like to come here? In an afternoon when I'm tired from work and just wanna chill. This looks like the kind of place for that.

    Hey, I've been planning to visit KL because of all these wonderful places you feature. Seriously, I want to try the food and see these amazing places, thanks to you.

    1. Lux: you're right, this place could be a refuge for the work-weary! :) thanks for the awesomely kind words - i hope you find that KL lives up to your expectations, in terms of places to eat and drink! :)
