Drink pairing tips

  • Sake and 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.


  • Take Wagu beef to the next level

    When ordering Wagu beef, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of Chenin Blanc, a popular white wine.
