Sushi and Sake Festival returns to Pechanga Resort Casino – Whittier Daily News
Part of the summer experience is eating fresh food, and what better combination than sushi and cold sake.
Pechanga Resort Casino is bringing back its Sushi and Sake Festival on Saturday, July 9 starting at 1 p.m. at Pechanga Summit. The casino offers four different ticket tiers for the event.
The first tier starts at $45 but only includes unlimited sushi. The second tier is $75 and includes unlimited sushi, sampling over 40 varieties of sake, and eight kinds of beer.
The other two tiers range from $70 to $150 and allow guests to enter the festival at noon, one hour before the festival opens to general admission ticket holders. VIP tickets will also include a commemorative sake cup and wooden cup holder.
Dominique Nortwick, manager of Umi Sushi & Oyster Bar located at the Pechanga Resort Casino, said guests can expect plenty of fresh-cut fish dishes, including tuna sashimi, yellowtail and Hamachi Crudo.
Nortwick said guests will also have the opportunity to try a variety of sakes from strained, sparkling and fruity flavors that pair with the dishes. In addition to different sakes, the festival will also serve beer and sake-inspired cocktails, such as a sake mojito and a sake martini.
“I hope customers will try all the different sushi and sake we have on offer,” Nortwick said. “We want customers to have a great time and come away with a better understanding of the different ways to drink sake.”
