  • When a Japanese person recommends a Japanese eatery, you better sit up and pay attention – or at least I certainly did, especially since this was a recommendation for yakitori. And what’s not to love about little skewers of BBQed meats?

The SO and I think I may be sensitive to the preservatives in beers and wines. With that said, there are a couple of wines I will and can happily have, and one of those is Samuel's Gorge from McClaren Vale.
