Drink pairing tips

  • The ideal drink pairing for mapo tofu

    Finding the ideal drink pairing for mapo tofu can be tricky. It’s worth exploring some white wine, particularly a glass of Riesling. This, sweet, white wine balances the spicy and rich mapo tofu.

  • The perfect complement to pork belly in sweet garlic and chili-oil sauce


    When ordering pork belly in sweet garlic and chili-oil sauce, experts suggest pairing it with a glass of Malbec, a popular red wine.

  • Pair dandan noodles with Saison

    To elevate your dandan noodles experience, we recommend some Saison to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this beer enhances the intensity of the Szechuan peppercorns found in the dish.
