Like the Japanese art of Kabuki, which combines dance and drama, Kabuke blends sake with zany bar bites. You don’t have to be an expert to appreciate the pairings either – everything is easily broken down and you’re encouraged to order sake by the glass or carafe to savour a range of types throughout your meal. Each dish on Kabuke’s menu also comes pre-paired with a sake so ordering is a breeze.
Made by fermenting polished Japanese rice, sake is an alcoholic beverage that is rich in history and ceremonial significance. It can be sipped chilled, at room temperature or warm and is traditionally served in small cups called small cups called choko. A word to the wise – compared to other fermented beverage counterparts like beer and wine, sake has a much higher ABV of about 15 to 20 percent so you might want to go easy.
If you’re subscribed to a "rice is life" kind of attitude, let us help you apply this philosophy to your liquid needs as well. For goodness sake (pun intended), go out there, devour a stick or a dozen yakitori, knock back some sake, contemplate and repeat.
