Toronto Common is excited to announce a special invite to That’s Life Gourmet‘s Summer Tasting Series.

That’s Life Gourmet is celebrating summer with a series of tasting events that feature each of their product categories; sake, Spanish wines, and Champagne and Toronto Common is invited!

The first event will feature Sake & Japanese BBQ with Zakkushi on Carlton.

Zakkushi already specializes in authentic Japanese Kushi Yaki. This event will elevate the experience with a traditional structured yakitori dinner featuring 12 skewers plus a few side snacks in a set sequence to showcase each ingredients at its best.

Similar to sushi, authentic yakitori should be enjoyed in a particular order and right off the grill which can be hard to achieve in their daily service since customers order as they please.

Zakkushi will be offering their yakitori as it is intended to be enjoyed in Japan along with a pairing of 5 sakes & a special shochu cocktail from That’s Life Gourmet to Toronto Common for $45 tax and tip included!

Join us for this authentic taste of Summer BBQ Japanese style Wednesday, August 10th at 7pm!
