Drink pairing tips

  • Rosé and falafel


    When considering what goes best with falafel, we recommend a glass of Rosé, it truly complements the dish as it counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.


  • Go for Chardonnay with falafel

    For an elevated experience, pair your falafel with Chardonnay. This combination works particularly well because this white wine enhances flavour.


  • Take falafel to the next level

    Experts recommend pairing a falafel with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.
