Monthly Sake Pairing Dinner Series at OTOTO


Over the years, we have recognized that our guests are a curious bunch and enjoy intellectual stimulation and cultural experiences.
So for the last few years, we decided to help our guests to fully appreciate our delicious sake selection, and learn a little about this time honored craft. We began by organizing numerous large sake tasting events with up to 250 guests.

However, starting last year, we decided to make our sake tasting events more intimate by offering more frequent, smaller Sake Pairing Dinners limited to 50 guests per dinner.

Our focus is the pairing aspect of sake with food, and we have a sake specialist at each pairing dinner, answering questions to help you to discover the delicious aspects of Japanese gastronomy.

While Toshi, our master chef, focuses on the cooking,
I, Yasu, will be your host.
The next Sake Pairing Dinner event is May 17th (tue).

This corner introduces everything about Japan. Today, we will talk about thing called UMAMI.

UMAMI is the way of describing the flavor profile of food and it is one of the 5 main flavors - sweetness, sourness, spiciness, bitterness and finally, UMAMI. This unique flavor profile was discovered by Japanese professor in Tokyo approximately 100 years ago.
