Please join us on Tuesday, August 12th at the Shanghai Osaka Restaurant in Nashua for a Wine and Authentic Chinese Food Pairing Dinner! Shanghai Osaka specializes in a fine fusion of traditional Chinese and Japanese cuisines and, in 2012, was hailed in the Boston Globe as a fresh, new alternative to its competitors. Shanghai Osaka’s two amazing chefs have 45 years combined experience cooking in Beijing and Shanghai.
It is one of my favorite Asian restaurants in Nashua. We’ve already held 2 very fun and well attended Japanese wine dinners at the restaurant, and decided to try their main specialty- unique Authentic Chinese food. This fun and educational dinner is organized into four wonderful courses specially prepared for the evening by chefs Wei Wong and Jong Wong. During this event you will learn about the fine art of Chinese food & wine pairing from Sommelier Svetlana Yanushkevich, DWS.
This event will begin with a social hour at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m. at Shanghai Osaka (295 Daniel Webster Highway, Nashua). The menu for the evening is below (vegetarian options are available) . Price $75 per person (including tax & gratuity). Drinks ordered during social hour are not included in price. The reservation book is being kept at WineNot Boutique so please call 603-204-5569 for a reservation.

Wine Pairing:– Don Pascual Viognier Reserve 2013, Juanico, Uruguay,- “Bright amber in color, this wine has intense aromas of apricots and tropical fruits, as well as some floral notes. This wine is rich and full bodied on the palate balanced with natural acidity and a long finish. Ideal as an aperitif or fantastic with fish, poultry and salads.”

~ Mongolian Beef with Scallion Onions in Light Brown Sauce

Wine Pairing: Three Rivers Red 2007, Colombia Valley, Washington State – The River’s Red blend originates at some of Washington States most poetically named vineyard sites. The nose absolutely delights with unmistakable notes of dark coffee, cedar box, oriental spices and cherries. On the mouth, ample nuances of vanilla bean, ripe blueberries and cherries are generous and lingering. Wonderful with a wide array of rich dishes, though velvety and silken enough on its own to be a sipping wine.
~ Truffle-Limoncello Gelato
~ Cappuccino-Truffle Gelato
Wine Pairing: Rat Dr. von Bassermann-Jordan Riesling Spatlese 2006, Pfalz, Germany Ripe peaches are glazed with honey and dusted with crushed stone in this sweet wine that’s lush and honeyed yet manages to retain some measure of restraint. A hint of citrus pith on the finish provides balance.
