Superb Local Craft Beer & Sake Bar, "Taki" in Shibuya

Tucked away on the third floor of a building on the opposite side of Shibuya station in area not frequented by many tourists is a beautiful quaint craft beer and sake bar, Taki. Matching some of the best beer and sake you try in Tokyo with delicate dishes, you're guaranteed to enjoy this hidden gem.

Feel free to follow favy!

A hidden gem near Shibuya station

Located in Sakuragaoka-cho district on the southwestern side of Shibuya station is this great little local-feel dining and bar called Taki. Take the west exit from the JR station and make your way up over the road on the pedestrian bridge and exit off the opposite side. From there you walk a little way up a small hill and you'll find Taki. Though it is a little hard to find, once you're here you'll be glad you made it!

Excellent Craft Beer

Taki a selection of around Japanese 20 craft beers to choose from, including 3 rotating tap beers and plenty other bottle beers that come and go with the seasons. Pictured above is a seasonal Mikan Ale (Japanese Mandarin).
Among the mix are some great IPA's and a bunch of pale ales, and wheat beers. If you're unsure, ask the owner and he'll sort you out with one of the best!
The Minoh Weizen!

Superb Sake

To say they have a range of sake here is an understatement! Being a bit of a sake, or nihonshu, novice myself, I asked the owner to set me up with a tasting set so I could try some his recommendations. I was not let down. Each different variety comes along with its own distinct taste, sweetness, and different quality. Here are 3 great ones to try!
Taki's own brand is a great choice!
Premium Gokyo also offers a different and distinct flavour.
Roman is also a great choice to finish up!

Tasty food

For such a small and little known bar, Taki serves some of the most delicate and mouthwatering food I've ever eaten. Pictured above is the Hida Gyu, a high quality beef that melts like butter in your mouth.
They've even put a funky twist on their fish 'n' chips. Lightly battered catch of the day, and fried renkon chips (super healthy root vegetable). It comes with this beet coloured tartar sauce that I couldn't get enough of!
A must try is the smoke salmon carpaccio!
Another great dish is the grilled chicken with a spicy fresh wasabi dip with green pepper corns! One of my favourites!
I've been traveling and eating my way around the world! Now I'm in Tokyo to share all my favourite spots! I spend my time traveling, surfing, hiking, camping and eating amazing food! My favourite Japanese food...Agedashi Tofu!
