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 chicken yakitori

    Experts suggest pairing a chicken yakitori with a glass of Assyrtiko, a popular white wine.


  • Go for Chenin Blanc with Wagu beef

    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.
