The Sake Inn

IMG_2097

The Sake Inn isn’t actually an inn, though it would be a good name for one with a free sake gimmick.  The Sake Inn is a store in Singapore that sells mostly sake, but it’s also where I picked up the canned drinks I showed in a previous post.  I’ve never actually tried sake before, though I’m interested.  My wife and I bought a bottle of sake from a Spring Kyushu Fair in another mall in Singapore, but never had the opportunity to drink it.  We got busy with packing and wound up giving it away as a gift.  Maybe next time.

I was impressed with the amount of Japanese goods that were available in Singapore.  Besides sake stores there were Japanese themed bakeries, restaurants and clothing stores, like Uniqlo.  I’m a little disappointed that there isn’t as much available here in the Philippines, but maybe I’m just not looking in the right places yet.  If you’re wondering where in Singapore this sake store is, it’s in the basement of Tampines 1, located right next to the MRT station.

Ya, kinda ridiculous isn't it? We kept looking at it in the fridge, but after packing and running around doing errands we were always so tired we never opened it. I haven't seen any sake for sale here in the Philippines, which is weird since it's closer to Japan.

Come to think of it though, part of this post is wrong. I have had two shots of sake at the Spring Kyushu Fair. The salesman invited me to try a bottle of sake that I wound up really wanting to buy, but they'd already sold out. I think he was trying to get rid of the extra, rather than having to throw it away.
