Perhaps one of the most exciting venues at the newly launched Japan Food Town, which houses 16 casual-dining eaters from japan’s various prefectures and cities, is a pop-up bar by the Dassai sake people, known for premium junmai daiginjo sake from the Asahi Shuzo brewery in Iwakuni, Japan, the first of its kind in Singapore.
They’ve brought in the exclusive Dassai 23 Centrifuge, a machine that separates completed sake from its lees, giving the sake a “cleaner” finish. The premium Dassai beyond is also available ($170), along with a sake cocktail called Sakura Sling ($28), and sparkling sake. Food wise, you’ll be able to chow down on a Dassai cheesecake ($6) made with sake. The bar also retails a Dassai sake tasting set of three 20 ml junmai daiginjo for $20, which are also available by the bottle.
The Dassai Bar at Japan Food Town at Wisma Atria is open at #04-52, 11am-11pm daily, for six months, and can 25 people at a time.
