Even though we live in a gorgeous climate, with our current weather being much more spring-like than most of the country, we’re already looking forward to spring and summer. We’re ready for sunshine, beach days, and cold drinks…but more than anything, we’re ready for the Yamashiro Farmer’s Market to begin again!

From fresh produce to the sunsets to the flavorful food offered, you can’t beat the summer vibes of the Farmer’s Market. Though May seems far away, we’re counting down the days until the weekly Thursday Market begins!

If you haven’t been to the market before, we took to Yelp to share some words from others that describe the experience:

“As if those elements weren’t enough, the atmosphere as a whole is what really sells this place. We arrived just as the sun was setting, and being in the hills, this location provides quite the view to anyone in attendance. With Spanish guitar playing in the background and dusk turning into night, it’s hard not to fall in love with this place. It would crush a first date. ” – Ajay J.

“One of the most spectacular views in all of LA.. I know that is a bold statement.. But catch a good sunset from this place and you’ll know what I mean.. ” – Andrew & D’Arcy K.

“I wait all year for this great event. Amazing organic greens, dried fruits and nuts, people and utopian existence. I highly recommend it.” – Andrew M.

“One of the tents is food from Yamashiro -fish tacos and beef short ribs with wasabi guacamole are some of Yamashiro fare. Wash it all down with some Sapporo …so good! The views of Hollywood to Century City will bring you back out here with cool vibes and eats, why wouldn’t you come back?” – Jowel G.

We’ll talk more about the market as the time comes, but join us in counting down the days until this wonderful event starts up again. What’s your experience at the Yamashiro Farmer’s Market? Share in the comments!

Date night at Yamashiro

With Valentine’s Day only a day away, we have love on the brain at Yamashiro. As an intimate restaurant, we’ve seen more dates than we can count take place at our tables. From first dates to 30th wedding anniversaries and everything in between; from good to bad to just plain awkward, Yamashiro has always been a place where where two people can come together, butterflies and all, and enjoy romantic dinner and drinks with all of LA beneath them. We love getting to be part of that experience for so many people! In honor of Valentine’s Day, we took to Instagram to take a look at some of our favorite photos of date night at Yamashiro.

What is Nigori?

nigori sake
If you’ve looked over the drink menu at Yamashiro you’ve probably come across the word “nigori” on our list of sake. What makes this unique from your typical sake?

Nigori” is a Japanese word that roughly translates to cloudy. The drink gets this name from its cloudy appearance. Typically sake is filtered to remove any grain solids left after the rice fermentation process, giving it a relatively clear appearance. When the sake is not filtered during the fermentation process you end up with a sake that is much cloudier and that sake is called Nigori.

Nigori sake tends to be the sweetest of all sakes, which makes it a great pairing for a spicy dish or a dessert wine. As with most sakes, it is recommended that you consume the whole bottle once opened so that the sake does not lose any of its flavor. We at Yamashiro invite you to order a bottle on your next visit and drink up!
