Drink pairing tips

  • Sake with your soba noodles

    When considering what goes best with soba noodles, we recommend a glass of Sake, it truly complements the dish as it brings out the true flavors of the dish.


  • Pair Wagu beef with Chenin Blanc

    For an elevated experience, pair your Wagu beef with Chenin Blanc. This combination works particularly well because this white wine fights the fattiness with acidity.


  • The perfect match for your flounder sashimi

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