Saké Restaurant & Bar @ Brisbane

One of the conference speakers recommended I check out Saké Restaurant & Bar, so I dragged the SO there as part of his celebratory meal I owed him months ago for his work promotion.

Saké has gorgeous décor - dark woods matched with glass, their restaurant window overlooking the Story Bridge. We were seated at a table for 2, our seats positioned at the table corner, which I particularly enjoyed. It allowed us to converse with each other comfortably, yet watch the coming and goings of the restaurant.

Expect impeccable service and a very decent selection of sakes. The two we tried - a sweet and a dry - were delicious, though the glassware they were served in made tipping back the last drops tricky. Since it was a school night, we forwent the cocktails, which are rumoured to be very yummy.

Food-wise, the flavours are rich and delightful, with the exception of the ocean trout. I found it too bland in contrast to the other dishes we ordered, which is a shame.

The miso is strong and sweet, complementing the firm butterfish flesh

Other popular dishes we noted other patrons were having included the steamed prawn dumplings (Chinese-inspired shumai with spicy ponzu) and the sashimi combo.

Bottom line: Excellent modern Japanese restaurant for a special occassion.
