Drink pairing tips

  • The ideal drink pairing for daal bhat

    Knowing what to pair with daal bhat can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some red wine, particularly a glass of Cabernet Franc. This, strong and dry, red wine balances the meaty and smoky daal bhat.

  • Zinfandel with your spicy lamb

    When considering what goes best with spicy lamb, we recommend a glass of Zinfandel, it truly complements the dish as it cushions the lambs flavour.

  • A next-level match for aloo gobi

    Experts recommend pairing a aloo gobi with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.

Did you know?

  • A killer pairing

    Often considered one of the most iconic drinks in Nepal, raksi is a crowd-favorite choice across the country, often prepared with millet.
