This post took a while as I was having a little trouble retrieving the photos. I thought I almost lost them but am so glad they did not abandon me.
That night, my girlfriends and I braved the haze AND rain to chill at Boruto. We fixed the date awhile back and have been looking forward to a night out so deterred we were not by the unexpected hostile weather.
We were glad we did so.
It was a cold and quiet night in the CBD area and seated on the high stools by the window enjoying sake with tapas was nothing short of the perfect setting for a girls night out.
This SAGA GYU TATAKI (seared saga beef with saffron) was definitely a winner as much as a star. So tender and juicy, each slice tasted heavenly. A beautiful dish that was elegantly plated.
I can’t recall the actual name of this but the subtle chargrilled flavour of these giant asparagus was a good balance with the rest of the stronger tasting dishes.
We usually enjoy our mussels in white wine sauce but Japanese sake? While this MU-RUGAI SAKA MUSHI (simmered mussels with japanese sake & garlic) did not disappoint, it paled against the rest of the dishes we ordered.
And of course dinner at a Izakaya wouldn’t be complete without some good sake to go with these gorgeous food. Their collection was impressive and its walls were lined with huge Japanese sake barrels almost shouting out to you to have a few rounds!
I am not quite educated on sake (yet) but this first bottle was probably one of the best sake I have tried. The sweetness and fragrance made it so easy to drink.
Maybe because we really enjoyed our first bottle, this second bottle was distinctively inferior. Even so, we emptied both bottles! Did I mention there were only three of us?
We had such a great night chatting away over many glasses of sake. Who can blame us especially when we are talking about such cute inviting little glasses 🙂
