Yama Sake Tasting@West LA ★★★

Amazing Sake Tasting Event at Yama Sushi Sake Attitude. Tasting 5 different sake for $15 with generous pours and refills. Came with Sashimi sample and chocolate for pairing, free Fried Chicken Karaage to take home, and 20% off all sake bottles in the store. My favorite was Emishiki Ginjo World Peace. It paired with Sashimi very well. I bought a bottle of it. Super fun event. Friendly staff. Looking forward to the next one. Tasting reservations via Tock.
