Drink pairing tips

  • Go for Sake with soba noodles

    To elevate your soba noodles experience, we recommend some Sake to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this rice wine brings out the true flavors of the dish.

  • Chenin Blanc and Wagu beef


    When considering how to best enjoy your Wagu beef, we would highlight how well a glass of Chenin Blanc complements the dish as it fights the fattiness with acidity.


  • The perfect match for your chicken yakitori

    Experts suggest pairing a chicken yakitori with a glass of Assyrtiko, a popular white wine.
