Since more than 20 years ago, Thomas Yii and his wife have worked tirelessly to grow Tom’s as one of the best Western diners in Kuching. Located on the busy Padungan Street, regulars look forward to the signature cakes and perfectly cooked steaks tuned to individual palates. The well-appointed interior design is suitable for casual gatherings or more formal business meets. Seemingly fit for all purposes with food at its centre, many aren’t aware of the range of alcoholic beverages to match each occasion and visit to Tom’s.
Every bottle handpicked specifically for the unique tastes and their synergy with the food, diners have the opportunity to unlock a culinary discovery with each glass.
The red and white wine collections are from all over the world including France, Spain, Italy, New Zealand and Peru to name but a few. Whether you’re partial to a lighter and fruity white wine to go with your seafood dishes or a more full-bodied red wine to augment your steak, there is the perfect bottle for you. Thomas is always on hand to provide his opinion from his many years of experience of wine tasting. Discussions on the acidity and earthy aroma of the Sauvignon Blanc or the oaky scent and deep flavour of the Syrah will leave you impressed and inspired to explore more from the vast collection of wines at Tom’s.
If the above has you interested in keeping your own collection, Tom also offers wine cupboards of different sizes to accommodate space in your house and your passion for good taste.
Whiskeys from across the globe are also on offer, all of stellar quality. Experiment with aged McLelland whiskey that provides a sharp and refreshing kick with each sip. For a smoother experience many people enjoy the Yamazaki, softer on impact and with stronger hints of fruit.
Thomas also recommends his gins, which are accompanied heavily with ice. The juniper berries, citrus, almonds and cinnamon always provide a unique and pleasant experience.
Tom’s will be hosting tasting nights with wine and food pairing in the new year.
For seasoned drinkers and people who want to learn more about wine and whiskey, Tom’s is the perfect place to receive education through experience.
