An Encounter with Rare Japanese Sake
At “Kagurazaka Sushi Rin”, the true charm lies in the marriage of authentic Edomae sushi and Japanese sake, wine, and champagne. One of the exciting features is the chance to experience rare Japanese sake.
As for rare Japanese sake, we offer “Gokudaiginjo Genshu Muromachi Era” from Okayama Prefecture. This Japanese sake, made from 100% Yamada Nishiki rice, has won first place in numerous international liquor contests such as Monde Selection, IWSC, BTI, LAIWSC, and more. The rich ginjo aroma that fills your mouth and the umami that rivals it have earned extremely high praise. Our sake sommelier will carefully suggest Japanese sake that suits your preferences, even if you are not familiar with Japanese sake. Please feel free to ask if you have any requests. Moreover, for those who are not keen on strong alcohol, we offer “Aragoshi Umeshu”, which allows you to abundantly experience the fragrance and fruity flavor of Yoshino plums, and “Hoou Biden Yuzushu”, made generously with high-quality yuzu from Tochigi Prefecture.
The Use of White and Red Vinegar
We optimize the taste of our seasonal ingredients by pairing the lighter ones with white vinegar and richer ones with our uniquely blended red vinegar, accentuating the appeal of our ingredients.
Signature: Two Types of Tamagoyaki
Our restaurant is particularly famous for our tamagoyaki – we serve two varieties, a thick omelet and a dashimaki-style (rolled with dashi). This attention to detail has garnered us steady popularity since our opening.
