PrumPlum Umeshu Bar & Bistro
This spot takes inspiration from the plum wine bars of Japan.
Open for just one month, this spot takes inspiration from the plum wine (umeshu) bars of Japan.
Taking over what was a chilled little cafe on Sri Bumphen, the space retains the same no-attitude atmosphere, serving out a concise menu that focuses on five different umeshu.
At the top of the scale you’ve got Nanbu Bijin, an unsweetened sake umeshu from Iwate Prefecture for B180/shot, B2,150/bottle, but you can just as easily spend B550 on a bottle of Vietnamese Ume Tairiku apricot wine. PrumPlum also does its own blend for a cool B80 a shot, as well as three-shot tasting flights for B360.
Come on an empty stomach—the bar snack menu’s also huge.
