Sushi & Sake

2011Apr29-HokkaidoSushi-18

Sushi is one of the most delicious ways to preserve fish. Raw fish placed on vinegared rice wrapped with an outer layer of seaweed. The sweetness of the fish balanced by the pleasant tartness from the rice (optionally with a umami boost from the seaweed).

However, I usually don’t drink Sake when eating Sushi. Before or after is fine but I find there’s a clash with the vinegar and rice. What do you think?
