As a newbie who just joined Inter Rice family, I was really glad I participated this Spanish- Sake Paring at Don Quijote last night!!!!!
These are the sake we use for the pairing.
Yellow paint, brickwork, simple and spacious design creates a very homely style of dinning. Nice dark wooden bar gives a earthy and grounded feeling.
First course was Japanese Prawn Tapa paired with Imayotsukasa Junmai Daiginjo Supreme. With the clean and smooth taste of Imayotsukasa Junmai Daiginjo Supreme, it brought out the fresh taste of the onions and the prawn!
Second course was Scallop& crab meats in Bechamel Sauce paired with Imayosukasa Junmai Ginjo. Who doesn't like Bechamel sauce!!!! Creamy but still retaining the taste of scallops and crab. Ricey taste of Junmai Ginjo went well with the dish.
Third Course was Roasted Spanish Suckling Pig with Musashino Tokubetsu Honjozo. Personally I prefer this pairing the most. The suckling pig was very well done, the pig skin was super crispy. Musashino Tokubetsu Honjozo took away the oiliness. The spinach with currants was tasty.
Fourth course Tenderloin Steak Cubes with Blue Cheese Sauce pair with Ichishima Karen Umeshu. Ichishima Karen Umeshu is my all time favourite, not too sweet not too sour. This was the most unorthodox yet interesting paring and it came out very well!
Last but not lease we have Paella DQ Especiale with Imayotsukasa Jumai. Rich taste of Imayotsukasa Junmai brought out the strong flavourful Paella overflowing with seafood.
Look at the way our Sake Sommelier, Adrian enjoyed the food. I guess i don't need to tell you how tasty it was XP.
