Drink pairing tips

  • The ideal pairing for Negitoro roll

    When ordering Negitoro roll, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of Sapporo Lager, a popular beer.

  • Vinho Verde Rose with your tempura prawn handroll

    When considering what goes best with tempura prawn handroll, we recommend a glass of Vinho Verde Rose, it truly complements the dish as it the carbonation will cut through heavier flavors of the batter.


  • Pinot Grigio and salmon nigiri


    Food with fresh flavors, like salmon nigiri, should be paired with a white wine like Pinot Grigio if you want the most to be brought out of the flavors of the dish.

Factoids

  • 141 pieces of sushi, please!

    If you think you could break the record set by Tim 'Eater X' Janus for most sushi eaten in 6, then you’re gonna have to do better than 141 pieces.

  • The world record from Japan

    A little sushi roll never hurt anybody! The size of the longest sushi roll might surprise you, coming in at 9,332 feet 8 inches! How big of a kitchen do you need to make that?

  • A perfect match: green tea & sushi

    Surely you’ve tried green tea with your sushi? It’s a classic pairing.
