William and I have this sushi place in downtown Rochester we really enjoy, Max Sushi & Noodles. They just opened on Main Street East in the beginning of the winter. We just accidentally stumbled into it one evening. The first time, we ordered a few rolls, some were seared in front of us with a torch. Some had smokey salt on top. Some noodle dishes had delicious salmon. The second time, we got Sake. And I am glad we did. Typically, for me, Sake all tastes the same. But like anything else we are learning, when you intentionally consume it side by side with other counterparts, each one takes on their own unique personality. We bought two Sake flights. It was a good time. Have you tried any of these?
