Drink pairing tips

  • Enjoy falafel with Rosé

    To elevate your falafel experience, we recommend some Rosé to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this pink wine counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.

  • The perfect complement to tomato and arugula salad

    Experts recommend pairing a tomato and arugula salad with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.

  • Sauvignon Blanc with your falafel

    If your food palns include Falafel, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Sauvignon Blanc, with its hits of tropical, serves as the best pairing to the dish.


  • Expensive taste

    In 2019 in Tokyo a bluefin tuna was made that sold for p$3,082,610.

  • A killer pairing

    Should you find yourself on the streets of Italy be sure to sample the local campari one of the country's most classic and popular drinks!

  • The first ever

    Where does kebab come from? Turkey and the creator was Turkish soldiers.
