Drink pairing tips

  • Tempranillo and fried chicken


    A glass of something that cuts the fat with its tannins should be what you pair your fried chicken with. You can’t go wrong pairing your food with a red wine like Tempranillo.

  • Go for Pale Ale with fried chicken

    To elevate your fried chicken experience, we recommend some Pale Ale to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this beer cleanses the palate.

  • A next-level match for fried chicken

    Experts recommend pairing a fried chicken with a glass of crystal malt, a popular beer.

Fun facts

  • A big feat in 2018

    In 2018, Korea Tteok Food Processor Association from South Korea made a 17 feet long rice cake.

  • A classic meal

    A trip to Korea is incomplete without having tried the local bulgogi, a national classic!

  • Ready for some gyoza?

    gyoza is pretty tasty, to say the least, and Peter Czerwinski agrees. If you want to break their record for most dumpling eaten in 1, you’re gonna have to help yourself to more than 10!
