Umami Mart’s Fourth Annual Matsuri Festival

In partnership with Oakland Beer Festival.

Japanese gift store-slash-convenience store Umami Mart has been known to throw unusual parties that show off its cultural roots and edgy, Oakland style — think cobbler-themed parties, artisanal sake tastings, and Girl’s Day events featuring traditional doll displays. This year, Umami Mart celebrates its fourth birthday with: Japanese snacks by the Ramen Shop; ceviche by Casa de Kei; chicken kara-age by pop-up favorite Abura-ya; sticky chicken wings and shanghai lumpia by seasonally focused FOB Kitchen; and The Trappist. Coedo Brewery’s special edition tsuyu saison, brewed with Japanese plums and perilla, will be available to wash all that umami down, and Emeryville Taiko and J-pop-spinning DJ Chungtech will keep your ears pricked. In partnership with the Oakland Beer Festival.
