Drink pairing tips

  • Pale Ale with your bean, cheese, rice burrito

    If your food palns include Burrito, then you should consider helping it along with some beer. We find that a Pale Ale, with its hits of hops, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • ESB with your beef burrito

    When considering what goes best with beef burrito, we recommend a glass of ESB, it truly complements the dish as it balances fatty flavours.


  • The perfect match for your cheese enchilada with beef

    When ordering cheese enchilada with beef, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of Amber Ale, a popular beer.

Fun facts

  • The $300 olive wagu beef

    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 dish

    A trip to Mexico is incomplete without having tried the local mole, a national classic!

  • An iconic duo: tea & steak

    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.
