Tuesday: Korean BBQ + wine demystified

Korean BBQ - it’s “fire+meat” Tuesday at Shinsei | Korean food innately allows you to create your own personalized flavor combinations. You can include more lettuce, less bean sprouts and just a smidge of chili paste alongside your barbecue, and pair your wine accordingly.  Some say, “You can’t really pair Korean food with wine.” We BEG to differ!

 Suggestions abound.

 Let’s start with the matching of a robust California Zinfandel or rich Malbec which can well support the delicious umami and luxurious fatty flavors of the Korean BBQ.

 We also really think a sparkling wine with a hint of sweetness works, with its acid and the bubbles that  cut through the caramelized sugars of the meat.

The most uncommon pairing might be the spice of an Italian Tuscan. Lastly the brightness of a Syrah or Shiraz will add some depth to your bite, meld the buttery elements of the meet while complimenting its sweetness.

And of course, drink whatever makes you happy! A cold beer is a great match to spicy, sweet roast meat.

If you haven't experienced Shinsei Korean BBQ, you haven't lived.
