BYO Wine Reccomendation for Kuma Inn?
Going to Kuma Inn tonight, and being an intermediate wine appreciator, but certainly not a serious oenophile, I'm having some difficulty figuring out what would pair well with their impressively varied asian small plate menu. Even red or white seems like a toss-up to me. (FYI: I'm generally a fan of larger red wines, but would love to be pushed towards assertive whites that I suspect would probably work well, here). Can anyone point me in the right direction?

i like the beer/sake suggestions, but if you prefer wine, id go with a nice white. i love the chateau ste michelle gewurtzraminer- well-balanced and not too sweet, i think it's a good choice for the asian menu. and cant beat the price- around $10 at trader joes. enjoy dinner!
So, we eneded up going with a Washington State gewurtzraminer. Our inital thought was that it was a tad sweet, but once the food started arriving, it turned out to pair beautifully with almost everything. I couldn't help but think that with all the pork, a mild red would have worked, as well. And, I don't think we could have gone wrong with asian beer!
What an amazing meal! And what a deal! Thanks so much for all the advice- very much appreciated.
