Eat, drink, learn is the mantra at this newly-opened sake-and-shochu bar. (Shochu, in case you’re not down with that, is a clear distilled spirit.) The brightly-lit contemporary interior, with its long glass balcony, may feel more like a restaurant than a bar, but that’s exactly the idea: it’s styled on a Japanese izakaya – a bar-cum-sake-shop, where it’s as much about good food as the liquid goodness. Co-owner and sake-geek Evandro tells us that sake, being a rice-based drink, should be teamed up with non-rice dishes so opt for the sashimi and the tender costela com kochujang (R$25) – that’s pork ribs with a mild Korean chilli sauce – which is just one of a few hot oriental dishes. As for the sake, if you have no idea where to start, take the first step to enlightenment with the degustação (R$35) – a taster of three different qualities of sake.
