Last evening, I stopped at Sakura Bana, on Broad Street in Boston. It is a little Japanese restaurant and I had not been there in a couple of years at least. But, I had always enjoyed it before. I had some sushi and sake and was very pleased with the results. The sushi contained large pieces of fresh and tasty fish. I had maguro (tuna), white tuna, anago (eel) and tamago (egg). I accompanied the sushi with a Hakushika nama, a light and clean tasting bottle of sake. It was nice to rediscover an old favorite.
Though I did not have it last evening, Sakura makes an awesome dessert. Banana tempura! What a decadent pleasure!
