Zoe Burgess’ Top 5 Drinks Pairings in London

Zoe Burgess of Drink Factory shares her top 5 London drinks pairings. Zoe is hosting a Food Pairings Masterclass on January 27th, where you can learn about marrying flavours, pairing drinks to dishes and aroma combinations.


Xu. Zoe says, ‘Xu is known for it’s amazing food offering, but they also have a really unique range of Taiwanese teas on offer that pair extremely well with their food menu.  It’s great to be able to try such unique flavours together, especially if you’re looking for something non-alcoholic.’

P.Franco. Zoe says, ‘A great neighbourhood spot that always gets its refined food offering and wine matching right on.  I find their staff always give great suggestions as to the best wine pairing for your food.  Keep an eye out for their special pop-ups for more unique pairings too.’

Koya City. Zoe says, ‘Drink Factory had the pleasure of working with the Koya team on a few bottled cocktails for their menu.  The delicate flavour and slightly lower ABV Shochu Martini is the perfect lunch time pairing. Great to have a second spot to enjoy the best udon in town.’

Jim’s Café. Zoe says, ‘You don’t have to go super high-end to get a good food and drink pairing.  Jim’s Café showcases some of the most fun and accessible food and drinks I’ve had in awhile. Their cocktails are always well made and complement the British café-style food menu well.’

Roka. Zoe says, ‘Roka is my treat pairing spot.  If you’d like to try some of the most interesting sake and shochu cocktails mixed in with a great selection of considered Japanese food than head here.  They also do a tasting menu for two which is well worth it.’
