... food you would normally eat. can wine be paired with any food? I don't know. hmmm
Original Post
No - burgers go with medium-bodied reds and Fish and Chips is perfect with a Chardonnay.

I'd say anything highly acidic such as the vinegar mentioned above and sharp citrus fruits such as lemons and grapefruit (also mentioned) though Sauvignon Blanc does go well with limed fish.
You technically could pair wine with any of the following... but why would you?

Chinese, Thai, Japanese, etc.
Anything BBQ's (ribs, beef brisket, brats, etc.)
chili
Mexican
buffalo wings
cold subs
cheesesteaks Razz
chips
pretzels
nachos
salsa
salad

I could go on and on...
I can handle SB paired with asparagus or artichokes. Heck, I even like potato chips with Champagne. But, I can't find a tolerable match for hot spicy foods.
I love a nice sweet riesling with ANY spicy food, especially thai.

Riesling or gewurz goes well with Thai.

I was going to say fish & chips, but then read KB's pairing of chardonnay. Even doused with malt vinegar?? Cool I'm sceptical, but I'll give it a try sometime.

Oh God, some funny stuff there, although I have to admit I was close to gagging a couple of times! Eek

However, I think that a Petit Syrah could compliment the Potted Meat very nicely (meaning, bury the flavors if you quickly guzzled after each bite). Big Grin
OMG Dave- that was the most disgustingly funny website I've seen in a while. I can't wait to eat some huitlacoche paired with a Spatlese. It seems like a natural to me.
I had little asparagus the other night. I would say 10-15 minutes later I poured myself a glass of wine. It definately tasted metallic. There was nothing else there.

I agree. For sure, I don't drink wine with Mexican or Chinese. I can work with almost anything else.

I like Champagne with Cantonese food.


It's not just the match (I'm sure there are choices). I just like water with it. Also, by the time I woof chinese food down, there is no time to even pour wine. Smile

LOL- You know you're going to do it, just have a bucket ready....

(actually it's not that disgusting, it's quite humorous)
wine is best at it´s self.

clean palate, good concentration, good air (no smoke, no pafum, no aftershave, no airfreshner, no .....) and calmness.

that´s how i like wine
