Truly a special event, this dinner will be a seven course meal paired with Yaegaki and other premium sakés.  Each course will be introduced by our very own Chef Hajime Sato along with a brief explanation of the individual sakés and how they were chosen to pair with that course.  There will also be an added emphasis will be on the importance (and deliciousness) of sustainable seafood.

Sake Tastings at Uwajimaya

Whilst perusing the goods at our favorite Uwajimaya location yesterday, we were happy to spot our good friend Louise.  Upon further examination, our delight grew as we realized that she was facilitating a complimentary mini sake tasting of three of Uwajimaya’s offerings.  How cool is that? Today and tomorrow, tastings will be held between 2:00-5:00pm.  Apparently the selections to taste will be rotating every weekend, so be sure to check back regularly for maximum sake enjoyment.  Keep this schedule in mind as the dates and times vary based on which location you’d like to visit.  We still think the International District locale is especially worth the visit.  Be sure to say “Hi” to Louise for us!  Then you might consider heading over to Mashiko for dinner.  We’ve been known to do some fabulous sake pairings with our meals.

This may very well be the most fun you’ve had at the supermarket in a long, long time.  Come on, you know you were going to pop in and grab a box of Hello Kitty Choco Pies anyway.
