Can anyone direct me where to get sake (japanese rice wine) in Johannesburg? More specifically in the Roodepoort area.

Thanks

I have no idea whether you guys have these shops in Joburg but in Durban they sell sake at EVERFRESH. It is a fresh produce shop that sells veggies etc.

Almost any sushi or chinese restaurant sells sake. Otherwise make your way to Randburg, theres a lot of chinese supermarkets with lots of interesting stuff.

I would say go to Norman Goodfellows. Not sure what kind fo Sake you are looking for but they vary greatly in price and quality. If you can find a Chinese grocery shop, they will certainly see sake. The brand they sell in these shops is however cr4p and should generally rather be enjoyed warm.

If you want a sake good enough to actually enjoy cold, then you will have to look a little harder.

Where can I buy sake in Joburg?
After a quick Google....:unsure:...it looks like Bottleshop may be your only option.

Just make 100% sure what you buy from them IS currently in stock, because they are actually a bunch of muppets and I refuse to buy from them anymore.

Surely other places must sell! (also couldn't find anything else).

Are those prices normal? Seems like a lot for a bottle of wine.
