Wine And Food pairings

Having done many Asian Food dinners (Thai/Indian/Peranakan/Si Chuan etc) I have found that really the only way  to pair wine with Asian food is through trial and error. You dont need the best Wines to macth some of the great local foods. Chilli Crab, Most Currys, Thai spicy food etc have all been succesfully matched by us through a simple process called trial and error.Here’s a quick reference for some dishes and which wines we recommend, now remember, after a while YOU will become an expert at deciding this because you have developed the right taste buds by drinking the many wines available.
