Asahi, Japan’s number one beer

POSTED 01 April 2016 IN Spirit Of Japan

Crisp, clean and dry, Asahi is the perfect beer for people who appreciate the finer things in life. Luckily for us (and you) it goes brilliantly with the flavours and textures found in our menu.

“The sun is shining (finally!), Borough Market is buzzing and we just can’t stop pouring this refreshing, crisp draught beer….! (Sam Lessons, Borough Market Manager)”

What to order with your Asahi

  • Salty edamame, a great snack option. Refreshing Asahi makes the mild edamame flavour pop, and quickly quenches your post-salt thirst.
  • Having lunch? You’ll love the sublime flavours of a Japanese breadcrumb-crusted and deep fried chicken, fish or vegetarian katsu curry with a clean and crisp Asahi.
  • For a big night out with friends, why don’t you share a few Feng favourites? We think Asahi goes particularly well with rock shrimp or vegetarian tempura, deluxe mixed sashimi and mean spicy tuna rolls


Three things you probably don’t know about Asahi

  • Asahi, pronounced “Ah-Sa-Hee”, means rising sun in Japanese
  • Asahi was developed in 1987 as Japan’s first dry beer
  • Asahi is fermented for a short period, matures for at least four weeks, and then has a small amount of rice added to it. This gives it its distinct dryness, restrained bitterness and subtle citrus aroma, as well as its light golden colour.

Next time you’re at your local Feng for lunch or dinner, or to grab a takeaway, try a bottle or two of Asahi. It’s the perfect accompaniment to your Feng feast.
