Robata Harakan Robata Harakan lists about 20 different sakes on the menu ranging in price from a few hundred to a couple thousand a bottle. The savvy sake consumer should also have a quick word to the manager about what’s not on the menu, as they often order special, hard-to-come-by sakes from Japan. The food specialty here is robatayaki – food cooked over an open flame – and much of it is appetizer-sized so you can try a little of everything. Open daily noon-1am. 1/F, Shop 1, Sunning Plaza, 10 Hysan Avenue, Causeway Bay, 2882-8616. Wasabisabi With its red-splashed Lipstick Lounge and innovative Japanese cuisine, Wasabisabi is the place to go for flair and luxury. Like the food menu, the drinks list is varied and inventive, with one of the most extensive sake selections in town. They also serve a long list of sake cocktails such as the lychee sake mojito, a sweet twist on the original. Open daily noon-midnight. 13/F, Food Forum, Times Square, 1 Matheson St., Causeway Bay, 2506-0009. Tokio Joe This upscale bar-restaurant serves a selection of hot and cold sake to go with their traditional food menu. The sake ranges from the pretty cheap to the slightly-too-expensive (it’s mostly down to how polished the rice grains were prior to fermenting). Come here to close a deal or wind down with other cogs in the corporate machine. Open Mon-Sat noon-11pm, Sun-Thu noon-11:30pm. 16 Lan Kwai Fong, Central, 2525-1889. Sake This specialist sake joint serves 50 sakes from Niigata, Japan, ranging in price from $320 to $1,880 for a 750ml bottle, plus fruity sake cocktails. It’s an ambient, comfortable place for intoxication any day of the week. With Japanese-influenced décor including tatami mats along one wall, floor seating, and low tables, this diminutive bar delivers atmosphere by the metric ton. Sugoi! 26 Yiu Wa St., Causeway Bay, 2295-6010.
