This Sake could pair with everything from French Fries to a green salad. Think of it as the Pilsner of Sakes, it light and fresh enough to pair with vegetables and salads but would cleanse the palate after each bite for heartier fare such as roasted chicken, baked potatoes, bacon, hard cheeses, and toasted nuts.
