Sake Central Saigon

Feb 25, 2019

WANDER UP THE WELL-LIST staircase at 59 Dong Du to find this modern haven of sake and small plates with a shared-table concept. Like the original Hong Kong flagship, there are no less than 30 varietals of sake on offer, by the glass or a 180-milliliter tokkuri, if you’re not eyeing the whole bottle. Unsure of navigating the menu? Order omakase and summon sommelier Jesse Selvagn to advise on pairings.
