Drink pairing tips

  • Chardonnay with your falafel

    When considering how to best enjoy your falafel, we would highlight how well a glass of Chardonnay complements the dish as it enhances flavour.

  • Enjoy falafel with Rosé

    For an elevated experience, pair your falafel with Rosé. This combination works particularly well because this pink wine counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.

  • Pair Sauvignon Blanc with falafel

    If your food palns include Falafel, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Sauvignon Blanc, with its hits of tropical, serves as the best pairing to the dish.


  • International Falafel Day

    If it’s June 12, then you best not forget to grab a little falafel for International Falafel Day.

  • A speedy eater

    Mihriban Kadap knows that you can never have too much of a good thing. They proved this by eating 290 skewers in a limited time,setting a world record in the process!

  • falafel history

    medieval period was an interesting time, and it gave us the much cherished falafel. We can thank Egypt for that!
