Drink pairing tips

  • Chardonnay and falafel


    When considering what goes best with falafel, we recommend a glass of Chardonnay, it truly complements the dish as it enhances flavour.


  • Pair falafel with Rosé

    To elevate your falafel experience, we recommend some Rosé to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this pink wine counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.

  • A next-level pairing for Pinot Grigio

    When ordering tagliatelle pasta, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of Pinot Grigio, a popular white wine.
