Drink pairing tips

  • Sake with your 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.

  • The ideal pairing for flounder sashimi

    Experts often pair flounder sashimi with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.

  • Pair Wagu beef with Chenin Blanc

    To elevate your Wagu beef experience, we recommend some Chenin Blanc to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this white wine fights the fattiness with acidity.
