I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2015…

Cold Brew "Mizudashi" Iced Coffee at HI-COLLAR

Hi-Collar is a really unusual place. Modeled after Japanese tea and coffee parlors, it is a bar for breakfast and lunch (like rice-stuffed omelets topped with ketchup) with¬†fantastic tea and coffee. But at night, the bar switches over to accommodate sake drinkers and features interesting cocktails made with the rice wine. I’ve only been here in daylight hours and was very impressed with their rich and chocolatey cold brew, made with the Mizudashi method. If you’ve never tried the low-acidity full-bodied coffee style, this is one of the best places in the city to do so. And then slip some sake in there after work!!¬†Price: $3.50
