Roughly a year ago, in August 2014, I wrote about a new Japanese restaurant popping in Senopati that also doubles up as a sake retail store. The restaurant was Sake+, a sister brand of Vin+ group of restaurants and wine retailer in Jakarta and Bali. That same Sake+ just recently celebrated its 1st anniversary and for the momentous event, Executive Chef of Sake+, Asano Hiroaki prepared a special dinner for selected guests that evening. Please be advised that these dishes are not available on the regular menu, however, should you be so dead curious to try it, simply express your desire to the chef and who knows he could whip up something for you =)
This event was quite special to me, because it was the first sake-pairing experience that I've ever been to. I mean, I've been to wine-pairing and whisky-pairing dinners, but sake? Not yet, which made me all the more curious to know how different it would be from what I've experienced so far...
Hotate Kara - squid, kanpachi, clam, tarabagani, potato, scallop with cream miso sauce
Sake pairing: Hakutsuru Sayuri Nigori Sake Junmai
Beef Grill - Japanese Wagyu enoki roll with sauteed horenso
Sake pairing: Shiokawa Cowboy Junmai GinjoThis dish was my personal favourite of the evening...
Unagi Yaki-Onigiri Cha-Zuke - grilled rice ball topped with unagi kabayaki & original broth.
Sake pairing: Koshinohana Honjozo Shuen.
I like the slightly crispy surface of the rice ball and the tender unagi chunks on top.
|Dorayaki - served with cream cheese ice cream|
