I just learned that Dai Kichi means Great Fortune.
We always enjoy their very fresh sushi, sashimi and rolls as well as the well prepared cooked foods.
With Japanese I usually drink Sake. I like it chilled and expensive.
Update November 2009, we've been frequenting Dai Kichi again over the last few months and find it to be very good.
Warm Sake can be nice on a winter night but you lose the delicate flavors in finer Sake by heating it. They are meant be be enjoyed cold.
I don't shop in Angelbeck's across the street that often but they did have a great selection of wonderful expensive Sake.
Tonight I did not have time to visit a wine store so went to my own fridge where I had an inexpensive but good everyday Saki called Haiku, it sells for $10-12.
Another good inexpensive Sake is Takara Sho Chiku Bai Classic. Both of these are fine and quite enjoyable. But there are Sakes that are transcendent. Wine Library is where I usually buy these.
Some favorites incude: Chiyonosono Sake Garden Of Eternity, Nanbu Bijin Sake Ancient Pillars and Mutsu Hassen Junmai Dai-Ginjyo.
If you want to try another Sake drink that is pretty wild check out Wokka Saki.It can be found at Amanti Vino in Montclair.
