Drink pairing tips

    When considering how to best enjoy your beef burrito, we would highlight how well a glass of ESB complements the dish as it balances fatty flavours.

Fun facts

  • A delicious pairing

    One should always compliment their food with a drink that doesn't take away from the meal. If it’s steak you’re eating, we recommend pairing it with a tea. The tannin-rich flavors of the tea won’t detract from the flavors of your steak.

  • Priceless or overpriced?

    If you have recently won the lottery, or you just happen to have $300 lying around, why not spend it on indulging in the world’s most glamorous, and most expensive, olive wagu beef?

  • A classic meal

    Certain dishes are so iconic that they can become a part of a country’s identity. In Mexico, mole is recognized as one of the most popular national dishes.
