A dry Riesling pairs well with all raw fish because the high acidity cleanses your mouth while the fruit notes complement the sweetness of the rice and spice of the wasabi.⠀

The current cocktail list is insanely good and only matched by the seasonal rolls.

Fave drink: Terra Merita with rum, galangal, calamansi vinegar, egg white, orange and bitters.

Perhaps it’s the Gruyere cheese countered by the sweetness of the Asian pear that makes the Broccoli Tempura so satisfying. What do you think? ...

The pork belly and scallops from RED is hands down our favorite appetizer in the Madison area ▫️Pork braised aioli, cashews, chili threads, charred scallions and ginger oil. The best way to describe it is that it’s basically a flavor explosion in your mouth 💥. Our obvious strategy/secret agenda here is to raise awareness of this beautiful appetizer so people love it and it never leaves their menu 😉.. What’s your favorite appetizer?

Here’s how to distinguish the difference between similar looking pink fish. ⠀

If you have any telltale signs you use to tell these fish apart—do tell!⠀

Rob the Bartender is here to guide us through the four types of sake. ⠀

🗯@Bagofbones says:⠀
UNFILTERED SAKE is often lower in alcohol and sweeter than filtered sake. It’s heavy bodied, rich and cloudy. ⠀ ⠀
SPARKLING SAKE has been fermented twice, which gives it the characteristic bubbles. They tend to be lower in alcohol percentage and can be made from any sake grade.⠀

DESSERT SAKE pairs well with...you guessed it—dessert! Dessert sakes are often sweeter and a great way to end your meal. ⠀

FILTERED SAKE has had the rice solids filtered out, which makes it a more delicate and refreshing sake. There’s more botanical floral notes and the flavors are subtle.⠀

Do you have a favorite type of sake?⠀

The Bagel Roll is like a deep fried Philly roll with unagi sauce, spicy aioli, wasabi aioli. How does that sound!?!⠀

Hey Instagram! 👋🏻
We’re the @midwestmunchers and we’ll be taking over the @redmadisonwi account this weekend!
If you don’t already know us, we’re Mike and Jordan aka The @midwestmunchers.
Mike takes all the pictures and I write the captions.
We run this town.....
JUST KIDDING!
That’s Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
We just run this account.
That’s all. 🤷🏼‍♀️
We started sharing our life and food journey in 2017.
What started out as a normal boring food account, quickly turned into a photo journal of our meals and relationship journey.
Over the last year, we've fallen for each other over and over again, while eating our way through the Midwest.

Follow along as we try out the @redmadisonwi new Fall menu.❤️
