TIP2 PAIRING SPICY FOOD WITH DRY RICH SAKE

With its robust texture and high complexity, a dry rich sake can complement spicy or hot dishes that are pungent. Spices, herbs and chili can overwhelm our palate, so the high complexity and intensity in a rich sake can counterbalance. And a dry sake usually shows a sharp and clean aftertaste, which can also help cleanse our palate. Southeast Asian cuisine, Mexican food, and dishes with Cantonese spicy garlic sauce are all ideal choices.
