We’ve started almost a new standard of going out for a Murray Ave dinner each Saturday night. This week, it was time to hit up a delightful BYOB Japanese restaurant called Chaya.
We were very excited for this, because we’d never had wine with sushi before. Therefore, this called for some research on wine pairings (yes, we are total nerds who love this stuff). What we decided on was a Gewürztraminer-based white wine blend from Lot 30 Winery that we picked up on our trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. It was ideal!
The restaurant is tiny, unfortunately, so plan on a bit of a wait if you go on a weekend. But trust me, it is worth your time once your food arrives!
We got deep fried tuna rolls, the Squirrel Hill roll (shrimp, cucumber, and avocado), yellowtail and scallion, a toro roll (bluefin tuna), and Alaska roll (salmon, crab, and avocado). Oh was it yummy!
