Mei

Hi Everyone,

My name is Mei and I've been at True Sake since 2013. I was interested in sake after I moved to San Francisco. Who knew the sake world was so fun and interesting? Everyone you meet and talk to in the sake industry, is just so welcoming and is open to teaching you more about the sake world. I really wanted to know more and become involved in the industry. And here I am!

Kanpai!

-Mei

Kenbishi Honjozo - My go-to for a hot sake. THE BEST hot sake in my opinion. Also every tasty on the rocks or even chilled. Try it!! I love love love this sake! Don't be surprised if I recommend it to you at the store. There's good reason!

Chokaisan Junmai Daiginjo - This was THE sake that turned me on to sake. Fruity but not sweet, aromatic, crisp, clean. Super easy drinking.

Stella - One of our newer additions to the store. For sure a must try! So much complexity, and flavors going on, it's incredible.

Konnichiwa Cooking Sake - Replace your cooking wine with this bottle. You won't be disappointed. It's literally liquid umami. A MUST for all house cooking! I always keep a bottle at home. 

Kikuhime Daiginjo Genshu "Chrysanthemum Princess" - I absolutely love this sake! Kikuhime never releases any fresh sake, and all their bottles are aged. A lot of people ask me what is a super special sake to pair with a steak dinner or rich foods. THIS ONE! That's not all, this sake taste even better after opened for a couple of weeks.
