Shiboritate: Young Freshly Pressed Sake

Shiboritate
On a personal note, whenever I visit a sake place I aways go for Shiboritate. 
This is the freshly made very young sake that has a little lees leftover in the final product.  Some are a little gassy, too.  I love the fresh fruity notes I get on the nose, and the light delicate flavors on the palate.  Sometimes you can pick up hints of cotton candy or even a little pino colada if you have keen a  sense of taste.   


Youth Gone Wild

I love the youthfulness at play in Japanese sake... Like with how  the little nervous goose bumps before you know you're about to do something wrong.  Shiboritate is sake that is refined, yet brash and audacious.  Adventurous.  Sexually irresponsible.  Bold and full of potential.  Limitless.  Boundless.  Reckless and dangerous.  Brash.  And most of all, saucy!  Just like I love saucy foods and saucy languages.  Saucy AV actresses that have an unusual swagger about them.  



When Koji is added to the yeast starter and the moromi mash, it helps convert the rice starch into glucose.   Like the guy  representing the koji and the girl representing her yeast(y) goodness and the moromi mash being the result of  the combination of the two - no pun intended.   Releasing her womanly sweetness, the very nectars of life itself;  liquid bliss floweth.  In the end, it is all about chemistry.


The sweetness in the white radish (daikon), is simply divine and it compliments most Japanese sake,  especially winter white radishes that retain more sugars than standard radishes.  For me, a few days of being left in soupy broth enhances the flavors of that succulent white daikon.   It fills the whole mouth on every bite.   



This hanami season, remember, simple is best.

Shin-Okubo: Little Korea

So I finally got around to going up there to Shin-Okubo,  the land of Seoul via the Yamanote Line.  Been putting this trip off for years for personal reasons;  I am not a fan of Hanlleyu.      I knew why I came up this way, and for none other reason than the food, and maybe to bask in the nausea of Korean romanticist who steal Japanese Jukujo's souls.    But honestly, I like spicy food and stews and pickled vegetables that challenge my taste buds.    I also love the little funky cafes that line the main thoroughfares and alley ways, each with their own little eclectic menus and interior decor.     This place is Korea.  





Shin-Okuba represents more than just a place to relish in Korean culinary delights and K-pop culture, but a place where Koreans can express themselves through their culture.    You can feel the local vibe in the air as you're walking down narrow walkways and footpaths.    I have personally been to mainland Korea six times, so a lot of the nostalgia was there …

Japanese Girls: A Sex(quisition)

While writing this, I was listening to "Going Through Changes" by Eminem

No, I haven't lost any love for momma, Japanese Jukujo that is, and yes, I do have a special place in my heart for young Japanese women, too. 

But then....then I glance over and there's a momma, a delectable Japanese Jukujo momma.  Fully rounded, and fully figured and fair healthy skinned.  Full fine silky muff fujii mounds. 

From this point I feel I need to qualify my remarks more thoroughly, though, especially when referencing women in general.   Firstly, it cannot be denied that there are beautiful women all over the world and from a variety of different backgrounds.  Women are people. However, in this essay I would like to take it a little further.

For me, living in Japan I have created a world unto myself so to speak.  I believe that some people create reasons for doing things, more so than there actually being a real need for doing said things, while others drift along accepting any an…
