Sipping Sake at Hamamori Restaurant in Costa Mesa, California
You’ve been to wine dinners – now it’s time for a sake dinner. At Hamamori Restaurant and Lounge at South Coast Plaza, you’ll sample your sushi under crystal chandeliers. Start with sashimi and move on to fusion dishes from black-truffle topped scallops to Kobe steak to halibut with pomegranate reduction. Then move on to the sushi, but don’t forget the rice wine. Ask the manager to pair each dish with one of their 20-plus specialty bottles. If it’s a special occasion, pop the sparkling sake.
