Drink pairing tips

  • Sauvignon Blanc with your 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.

  • Chardonnay and 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

    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 classic meal

    Do you like dried, salted cod? Then you should give Bacalhau from Portugal a go.

  • Overpriced, much?

    If you have recently won the lottery, or you just happen to have $3,082,610 lying around, why not spend it on indulging in the world’s most glamorous, and most expensive, bluefin tuna?

  • The history of kebab

    The next time you bite into a deliciouskebab remember to thank Turkey who are responsible for this tasty culinary invention.
