Add Sake to Taste – discover seafood and sake pairings in London

Explore seafood and sake pairings at your favourite London restaurants

  • From Spectator Life

JFOODO has brought together the most sought-after Japanese sake varieties with London’s top restaurants to create food pairings to enhance and delight your palate.

The campaign is designed to introduce, educate and make London fall in love with sake. We will be focusing on the harmony of sake and seafood, one of the best pairings that enhances the umami, which translates in Japanese as the ‘essence of deliciousness’.

This campaign will run until 18 March, giving you the next few weeks to explore the world of sake with some of the best restaurants in London. This melting pot of British, Japanese, French and, well, any cuisine you can imagine helps us explore new ways of experiencing your food.
