This Japanese Bar Spotlights Gyoza and Champagne Pairings

 - Mar 18, 2017
Cheese and fruit are some of the most popular champagne pairings, but the Champagne & Gyoza Bar is a new destination in Akasaka, a residential and commercial district of Tokyo, Japan that explores an unlikely combination of food and drink.

True to its name, the Champagne & Gyoza Bar is a celebration of pan-fried dumplings and more than 30 different kinds of champagne. At the same time the dumplings are elevated by the prestige of champagne, in this context, the bubbly drink is also shown as an alcoholic drink that shouldn't just be reserved for special occasions.

In recent years, consumers have become increasingly interested in novel alcohol pairings, looking for advice on which drinks to consume with vegan fare, convenience store candies or even unexpected edibles like insects.
