Sushi Zo’s special sake-pairing omakase dinner

Head to Sushi Zo on Mar 30, when they’ll be holding a special sake-pairing omakase dinner. With a focus on Niigata prefecture’s Kubota brand, there will be three types sake on offer to pair with 18 courses. Diners will have the chance to sample junmai daiginjo, a smooth and mellow A-grade sake. Also on the bill are full-flavored junmai, which is made with only rice, water and koji mold—no added alcohol—and medium bodied junmai ginjo. Dinner will be priced at B7,000, plus an additional B3,900 for sake-pairing. Hokkaido-born head chef Toshi Onishi's sushi is known to stray from the staunch rules of traditional Edo-style sushi. In general, this means your shima aji (striped horse mackerel) nigiri might come marinated in olive oil and topped with Sichuan pepper, or your red snapper cured under a smoke dome.
Mar 30, G/F, Athenee Tower, 63 Wireless Rd., 02-168-8490.
