Welcome to Kumo Izakaya, Melbourne's foremost location for Japanese sake, food and culture. An eating place, a drinking place, a meeting place, Kumo is more than a restaurant and bar.

We serve "Izakaya" style Japanese food, it's closest comparison is Spanish tapas. Lots of smaller dishes to share, meaning you get to try many different tastes as opposed to locking yourself into the traditional western style dining of "entree, mains and dessert".

At Kumo Izakaya, you will find a varied and extensive range of local and imported wine, spirits, sake, shochu, umeshu and beer. Our in-house wine and sake experts will be on hand to offer recommendations and information. Enjoy a range of small gourmet izakaya-style platters between friends while opening up a bottle of wine or sake to match, or sip a house signature cocktail or fine Japanese whisky at the bar.

Sake Master Vs Sommelier

11 January 2012 ~ Events
Sake and wine take centre stage for our Melbourne Food and Wine event.

Sake professional Andre Bishop will battle off against award-winning sommelier Sally Humble to discover which is better – wine or sake. A jovial excuse to crack open the bottles, serve up some sake and, most importantly, feast on Kumo's izakaya fare.

This event could get lively and, like all things Kumo, will have a wealth of knowledge behind it but shouldn't be taken too seriously.

Who will win? Sally Humble, Kumo's front-of-house manager and sommelier, who has developed her skills at Cutler and Co. and Vue de Monde, or Andre Bishop, self-confessed sake geek and owner of Kumo, Nihonshu and Australia's largest sake menu.

There'll be plenty of opportunity for discussion and questions, as we explain wines, dishes, sakes and shochus, so join us for food, fun and frolics and pick up some knowledge along the way.

Kanpai!

When: 19 March, 6:30PM - 11:00PM

Cost: $150.00 includes sake, wines, shochus and izakaya fare

Bookings: 03 9388 1505
