Drink pairing tips

  • Sake and soba noodles


    When considering how to best enjoy your soba noodles, we would highlight how well a glass of Sake complements the dish as it brings out the true flavors of the dish.


  • A next-level match for pork katsu

    Experts often pair pork katsu with a glass of Pinot Noir, a popular red wine.

  • Pair Wagu beef with Chenin Blanc

    For an elevated experience, pair your Wagu beef with Chenin Blanc. This combination works particularly well because this white wine fights the fattiness with acidity.
