Drink pairing tips

  • Chardonnay with your falafel

    When considering what goes best with falafel, we recommend a glass of Chardonnay, it truly complements the dish as it enhances flavour.


  • The perfect complement to tomato and arugula salad


    When ordering tomato and arugula salad, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.

  • Pair falafel with Rosé

    For an elevated experience, pair your falafel with Rosé. This combination works particularly well because this pink wine counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.


Factoids

  • A tasty history lesson

    The cherished falafel came from Egypt in medieval period.

  • 110 pounds of seafood stick

    A giant seafood stick was made in March of 2005 which weighed an incredible 110 pounds!
