Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
BAM! fulfils all the trappings of the now-mainstream hipster decor – naked bulbs, exposed wires and bare concrete walls – but look past that and you’ve found yourself in a popular CBD office crowd stomping ground. Plant yourself along bar facing the open kitchen to get up-close and personal with the lively kitchen staff, and order a few Spanish-inspired small plates to accompany your sake.
The vast selection of sake – at least 100 labels at any time, curated by head sommelier Hardev Singh – is proudly displayed in an impressive glass-walled chiller that greets you the moment you step into the restaurant. Besides the usual Kyoto and Niigata regions, BAM! carries bottles from smaller breweries in Shizuoka and Tochigi for $80 to $888. Thirteen sake labels, including one shochu and one umeshu option, are available by the glass ($8-$18) and, if you’re looking to get boozed up, 300-mililitre carafes ($30-$55).
The smooth, fruity and dry Inaba Stella Junmai Daiginjo ($17/glass, $51/carafe, $120/bottle) goes well with the cold capellini with sakura ebi and uni dish ($42), as well as the kampong egg with baby sotong and chorizo ($25).
