All I can say is, it is very daring of Yoshi san to use this new akasu that I don’t think that many chefs in California are using, but I think I have a hunch why… I’m sure he will do great things with it.

But I do encourage those of you are who going to please try either sake and report back. Most importantly, I look forward to reviews of the flavor profiles of the shari…super curious how it turns out. It’s crafted differently than the one everyone else in town uses. And if possible, how the pairings are of the sake with the shari seasoned with the same vinegar made by the brewery.

Distributor’s notes on the sake:

Saika Yamahai Junmai

Saika Junmai Ginjo Yamadanishiki

https://lamtc.com/latest/kokonoe-saika-yamadanishiki-junmai-ginjo/

For those who prefer something a touch creamier, dryer but overall higher acidity, more food friendly then go with the Yamahai Junmai. If you prefer a touch more fruit in the front aromas, bit softness and semi dry finish, then the Junmai Ginjo Yamadanishiki is for you.

These are not available in Northern California, so drink up and enjoy!

The akasu is actually from the Junmai Daiginjo sake lees of the same sake brewery, and is dubbed Ginjo Akasu. The lees is aged about 3+ years and is also further fermented in (oak?) wooden barrels for upwards of 120 days.

Their location has great hayato bang potential.

In fact I think I’ll do that.

At Price USD 0.00, I’m sure both sakes will go fast.

The Kaneyoshi Nara Chirashi and Hayato Bento together are, first of all, luxe beyond belief :smiley: , and second, should be more than enough food for the two of you.

BUT if you’re feeling especially flush, the Kaneyoshi jewelry box ($220), was spectacular at I-naba, and really quite special.

That jewelry box looks amazing, but don’t think we have the stomach like you or @PorkyBelly lol :sweat_smile: thanks! got this saturday’s meals planned!

A hayato bento and nama chirashi would be a great bang bang. Add a futomaki if you’re feeling hungry.

Very similar to the Jewel Box at the I-naba x Yoshi collaboration a few months back (a photo of my order below). But now at Kaneyoshi - slightly different shari, I suspect…

Picked up a Nama Chirashi on Friday night and was stunned. I’m not experienced enough with sushi to name all the types of fish Yoshi-san selected for the box, but it was truly delightful. I tried my best to savor each piece, but it continued to build on itself and I was anticipating the next bite with each I took.

This was the first time I’ve had anything prepared by Yoshi-san, and seeing how I live only a few blocks away from his new location I’m definitely looking forward to when he opens up his space and we’re able to dine in. Chatting a bit with him, he came off as such a humble and honest man, that I’m very excited with what he’s going to be able to do with his own spot.

Honorable mention for the perfect rice.
