Drink pairing tips

  • The perfect complement to siu bao


    Experts recommend pairing a siu bao with a glass of Chardonnay, a popular white wine.

  • Rose with your wu tao go

    When considering what goes best with wu tao go, we recommend a glass of Rose, it truly complements the dish as it carries the flavours of the dish.


  • Go for Pinot Gris with dumplings and chilli

    To elevate your dumplings and chilli experience, we recommend some Pinot Gris to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this white wine tones down the sweetness of the wine.

Factoids

  • The best day for ramen
