All good things shouldn’t be enjoyed just once. They should be enjoyed as often as possible, like another shipment of king crab legs I ordered last week, 3kg! And these were not just your ordinary king crab legs, these are called in Japanese 極太 or Gokubuto which is a generic term used to describe something extra thick, especially in the legs of an object or thing.
And so I ordered, all 11,000 yen worth through my favorite online shop Rakuten.
And the sake for tonight; one that came highly recommended was called “ Wataya “ of Kanenoi Brewery in Kurihara city, Miyagi Prefecture. It’s a Junmai Ginjo Nakatori(sake taken from the middle layer) Namagenshu. The rice used is called Akaiwa Omachi at 50%( An Okayama varietal).
I used a light vinegar when dipping the crab meat which went excellent with the light fruity texture of this deliciously nihonshu.
