This marks a historical high number of participating restaurants compared with the previous two years! Each partner restaurant will launch at least 3 seasonal seafood dishes, followed by a curated sake pairing by Sake Sommelier Ivan Sean. The total of around 300 sake x seafood combinations will allow more Hongkongers to have a taste of this match made in heaven.
