Drink pairing tips

  • A great drink pairing for camarones a la diabla

    Knowing what to pair with camarones a la diabla can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Riesling. This, sweet, white wine balances the spicy camarones a la diabla.

  • Pair Sauvignon Blanc with ceviche

    Experts suggest pairing ceviche with a glass of highly acidic Sauvignon Blanc, a white wine that bring out the delicate flavors the dish.


  • Go for Cabernet Sauvignon with hogao

    To elevate your hogao experience, we recommend some Cabernet Sauvignon to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this red wine complements the acidic flavor profile of the dish.
