Drink pairing tips for Ramen

  • Enjoy pork belly ramen with Pinot Gris

    To elevate your pork belly ramen experience, we recommend some Pinot Gris to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this white wine balances the broth’s saltiness by softening the intensity.

  • Doc's Draft Hard Cider and miso ramen


    When considering what goes best with miso ramen, we recommend a glass of Doc's Draft Hard Cider, it truly complements the dish as it offsets the saltiness of the broth.


  • The perfect match for your tonkutso ramen

    Experts suggest pairing a tonkutso ramen with a glass of Sake, a popular rice wine.
