    To elevate your salmon nigiri experience, we recommend some Pinot Grigio to go with your dish. This pairing works especially well because this white wine doesn't overwhelm the dish.

  • Vinho Verde Rose and tempura prawn handroll

    When considering what goes best with tempura prawn handroll, we recommend a glass of Vinho Verde Rose, it truly complements the dish as it the carbonation will cut through heavier flavors of the batter.

    Experts often pair Negitoro roll with a glass of Sapporo Lager, a popular beer.
