SAKE NO JIN (“battle of the sakes”) – PERTH SAKE & FOOD FESTIVAL 2021
Sample over 90 different types of beverages from all over Japan including premium Japanese sake, whisky, plum wine, craft gin, shochu and craft beer.
$49 per session, unlimited tastes*. Start the day with a feast of matsuri specials from Chef Tomohiro including Japanese charcoal grilled skewers of wagyu beef, eringi mushrooms or seafood, ramen noodle bowls, sushi and more. Then proceed to embark on a tasting journey throughout Japan from Kagoshima in the south (Imo shochu), to Yamaguchi (Japanese craft beer), to Okayama (umeshu, yuzushu and momoshu (peach), to Akita to Hiroshima (sake). This is the biggest range of sake in one event venue and most sakes are not seen anywhere else in Perth.
The festival is split up into multiple sessions to be Covid safer, with a cap of 150 per session. There are 4 over the weekend. Saturday 31/7 and Sunday 1/8, both 12:00 – 2:30pm, and 2:30pm – 5:00pm.
It’s on the grounds of Tsunami close to the Mosman Park train station.
During the tasting if you like something and you want to buy some to take home we give you a number and then put it away for you for collection at the end of the festival to take home. It’s a good time to stock up.
This is the best time of the year to buy sake as all the ‘nama’ (unpasteurised sake) will have just arrived a week earlier. It’s at its freshest and best.
There will be a taiko drumming and music performance by Taiko on Perth on Sunday.
If you want to attend the later session you may want to consider booking a table at Tsunami which opens at 5pm. Finish the day with a feast of Japanese favourites from tempura to sushi.
