Drink pairing tips

  • Pair soba noodles with Sake

    For an elevated experience, pair your soba noodles with Sake. This combination works particularly well because this rice wine brings out the true flavors of the dish.


  • Pair Chenin Blanc with Wagu beef

    When considering how to best enjoy your Wagu beef, we would highlight how well a glass of Chenin Blanc complements the dish as it fights the fattiness with acidity.


  • The perfect match for your pork katsu

    Experts recommend pairing a pork katsu with a glass of Pinot Noir, a popular red wine.
