Anju is a Korean term for “food consumed with alcohol,” a widespread practice in Korea. Everything from the varied textures of Korean food such as meat, kimchi, fish, to the intense spices and flavours begs the question: what exactly do you drink with Korean food? Here are three suggestions to pair perfectly with our Korean-inspired dishes.
Soju: Soju is one of Korea’s most popular beverages. By itself, Soju has a strong, sharp taste but paired with the spices of marinated beef or pork, can onset hearty and comforting flavours.
Sake: Also known as “rice wine,” sake contains cleansing properties. A dry, sparkling sake paired with a fuller body meal can help cleanse the palate. Sake also goes particularly well with kimchi, our housemade addictive pickled cabbage.
Beer: Fried chicken or Korean seasoned chicken — like our Gochujang Maple Hill Chicken Wings — goes particularly well with beer. If you’re consuming spicy food, try opting for a crisp lager beer.
