Sasagin is technically an Izakaya, but we treat it as a bar. This place is great because it has one of the largest selections of Japanese sake we’ve ever seen, and you can try them all in a casual setting. They may ask you to order a small plate of food or two, but at some point you’ll want it anyway. The old guy with a mustache here is basically a sake sommelier, and he’s happy to give you suggestions of what to try. It’s in a random part of town, which makes it a great way to escape tourist life and try traditional Japanese sake and small bites.
