There is an eye catching entrance of the Sake bar "Kagura Sake" along famous drinking street in Duxton. There is a dim light, relaxing counter sheets, with cozy atmosphere inside.
First sake was from Yamagata prefecture, "Aka eboshi" junmai daiginjo. First, there was a bland melon aroma, profound and well balanced bittersweet and sour taste. It has a easy taste, best suit for an alchol in food.
Grilled over-night dried conger eel has a bland umami taste with fine texture. Drop of lemon on the conger eel make the taste more refreshing. Together with sake, there is a good match as a fruitiness in sake stands out.
Next sake was from Okayama prefecture, "Sake hitosuji" kimoto junmai ginjo. There is a banana like aroma, caramel taste with bitter sourness. bar master said, this sake goes well with fresh food. So I had sashimi set, that the content changes weekly. This time was a tuna toro has melty umami, and sake mix with the fat well, brings refreshing bitter taste.
A prawn has thick sweetness, and sake helps to make the taste softer. A sea urchin has popping sweet taste, has a good match with sake and brings caramel like sweet taste.
Last sake was from Hokkaido, "Maruta" special junmai. bland aroma, rich and matured sweet taste. I had a grilled miso Iberican pork.
Refreshing taste of Japanese ginger, fatty meat, and rich miso blend well as I chew. This sake helps to blend the taste integrated with elegant sweetness.
