Spanish and Japanese may seem like a strange combination, but the fusion of the two was just surprising and enticing. BAM, a tapas-sake bar located at the seemingly popular Tras street is one such example. Made reservation for dinner and we were seated at the counter where all the action unfolds.
We were early 😉 10 minutes later, the whole place starts to fill. I would say it is popular among expats and locals
When they mentioned sake by the glass, I certainly wasn’t expecting a wine glass. And if you decided to order by the bottle, you can go to the chiller and choose the sake you prefer
Kampong Egg with Baby Sotong and Chorizo
You break the egg, which was cooked beautifully. Mix the yolk together with the sotong and eat it. The sotong was nicely fried and the combination with the yolk was perfect
Beef Tongue w Zucchini Flower & Bottarga
Tongue was tender. It felt like marshmallow haha
Pasta “A La Plancha” w Prawns and Sake Butter
This is probably the first time I’ve tried grilled pasta. Pasta was crispy and soft. Prawns were amazing
Enjoy watching the chefs at work
Tamago Sake, Lemon Zest Icecream & Banana
Dessert was simple but delightful. I like how the faint acidic taste of lemon in the ice cream balanced by the sweetness of the banana
Food at BAM just hit the mark. Though you may have to order more than one to fill full since the portion is small given it is a tapas. But it is definitely a place worth going back. And I love sake, so who says Japanese and Spanish can’t go together?
BAM! Tapas-Sake Bar
