Drink pairing tips

  • Pair soba noodles with Sake

    To elevate your soba noodles experience, we recommend some Sake to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this rice wine brings out the true flavors of the dish.

  • Chenin Blanc with your Wagu beef

    When considering what goes best with Wagu beef, we recommend a glass of Chenin Blanc, it truly complements the dish as it fights the fattiness with acidity.


  • The perfect match for flounder sashimi

    When having flounder sashimi, experts suggest you pair it with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.
